BitTorrent Inc., responsible for the development of widely known clients uTorrent and BitTorrent for peer-to-peer file sharing, announced that customers can now pay for Pro and Ads Free products using Bitcoin [BTC], Tron [TRX], and Binance Coin [BNB]. The payments will be using Coinpayments.net, a cloud-based payment solution for numerous cryptocurrencies, as the gateway.

Justin Tron, the founder of Tron and CEO of BitTorrent, said

“BitTorrent joins a growing list of online companies whose products and services accept TRX as payment. With BitTorrent’s over 100 million users, the move helps increase the use of TRX in online marketplaces while giving consumers more options to unlock value from BitTorrent’s premium products.”

The benefits of going Pro include HD playability, file conversion, fast downloads, and PC protection from malware, and, of course, ad-free usage. The blog post has also detailed how to pay for services using TRX or BTC.

BitTorrent, Inc. is a software company based in San Francisco. Founded in 2004, it uses peer-to-peer sharing technology to enable sending large files over the internet and allows content creators to connect with users. In their own words, “BitTorrent introduces decentralized currencies into one of the world’s largest decentralized applications”.

pxlicious, on Twitter, commented on the development:

“Bye Netflix! Next generation of TVs will be BitTorrent certified.”

Cryptoduck’s insight on Twitter:

“There is inherent value to the BitTorrent brand, and TRON should not miss the opportunity to advertise the names side by side.”

It might well help facilitate the wider reach of TRX. There are potentially thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of BitTorrent users who have either not heard of TRX, or are otherwise unfamiliar with. This move is expected to lift the adoption rates.
