Tron [TRX], the ninth largest cryptocurrency in the market, has been the highlight of the cryptocurrency market because of all the announcements pertaining to its development and projects. The coin took the center stage earlier this week when Binance announced that they would be launching BitTorrent token [BTT] crowdsale on their new platform, Binance Launchpad.
Following this, much to investors delight, Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of Tron Foundation, announced that the TRC10 token would be airdropped to all the members of Tron community. During a livestream on Youtube, the Founder also stated the Tron community has a special tie with the BitTorrent community [BTT].
BitTorrent still stands as one of the biggest acquisitions in the cryptocurrency space, as the benefits of the platform are noted by well-known influencers of the space including Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK and Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin.
Soon after the acquisition, the Founder announced that BitTorrent is going to be a part of Project Atlas, an integration of Tron and BitTorrent. The project aims to improve the network’s protocol, increase its speed and lengthen the lifespan of the swarms. Sun stated that more information regarding the project and the airdrop is going to be announced in the upcoming summit, niTron 2019.
Additionally, cryptocurrency exchanges have already started to come forth and announced their support to the Tron BitTorrent [BTT] airdrop. Earlier today, Koinex, India’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, announced that they would be supporting the upcoming airdrop, on their official Twitter handle.
Sir Bitlord, a Twitterati said:
“Today I moved a bigger amount of
$TRX in escrow. This is for my son. The TRX will be released to him in 13 years I believe this way he will basically be economically independent when he starts his adult life Really, everybody should be securing their children’s future this way.”
To this, Justin Sun said:
“Your son will not only receive #TRX but also #BTT with numerous amazing projects happened in 13 years. #TRON $TRX”
Yesterday, OKEx, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, announced the launch of Tron margin trading for the coin. The coin has been paired with Tether [USDT] and Bitcoin [BTC], and users can avail leverage of up to 2x of their available balance or the maximum limit, whichever is lesser. Along with this, WazirX, another cryptocurrency exchange, also announced that they would be supporting the BitTorrent airdrop.
