Justin Sun, the Founder of Tron Foundation unveiled the secret project of the Foundation. The entire Tron community has been eagerly waiting for the announcement of the secret project with the majority speculating about the project as well.
Justin Sun said:
“Finally, I would like to say a few things about our project, our secret project, now we name it Atlas, after the BitTorrent aquisition.”
Project Atlas would be an integration of BitTorrent and Tron. The Foundation has completed the initial computing and updated the roadmap for the next three months and the details pertaining to it will be released by the end of August.
The Foundation is exploring the possibility of improving the BitTorrent protocol with the help of Tron protocol in order to make it faster and lengthen the lifespan of BitTorrent swarms. They aim to improve the current Altruism with the integration of Tron network to BitTorrent. At present, there are no incentives for peers who have completed downloading to continue to seed.
The Foundation intends to extend rewards to peers who seed torrents infusing more resources into the Torrent ecosystem. The Tron network will serve as the online protocol for Project Atlas. BitTorrent will be the largest application on the Tron network which will allow Tron to surpass Ethereum on daily transactions and also become the most influential public blockchain in the world. It will also create a gateway for 100s of million users of the BitTorrent across the world become a part of the Tron ecosystem.
Moreover, the integration is set to add on to the global payment and settlement of the online content. The creators of the content will be able to reach 100s of million users without any intermediaries on the decentralized network.
The project will not be associated with any mining projects and it is not going to have any negative impact on the BitTorrent users. For BitTorrent users, the project is going to strength the current BitTorrent protocol by making it stronger and more competent.
The Founder and CEO of Tron Foundation said:
“Starting from today, Tron will enter a new phase of expanding our current ecosystem. We are grateful for what we have achieved in the past and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us.”
Elvin Michel, a Youtuber Commented:
“This is Great News Guys! TRON/TRX Secret Project: “ATLAS’ BitTorrent & TRON MERGE to make a better platform! Get rewards for seeding!”
BTC Stacker, another Youtuber commented:
“what a colossal waste of time and a failure.. why is it that now after 4 live presentational events that TRON has massively gone down in price… The last time it was 10 cents was 4 months ago and that was before the Testnet launch. Back during the first week of January 2018 it had reached its ATH of 26 cents and that was when it had nothing announced and it was just a ERC20 token.. Now after 4 events, TRON had gotten less in value each time… This is pissing me off royally..”
He further added:
“Where’s the Point of Sale partnerships showing that it can be used for near real time settlement when making purchases of goods and services?? Even if Bittorent is incorporated into the TRON code and vice-versa that may be great and all, but it’s not getting any massive amounts of people wanting to buy TRON… Do something with TRON that will catch a wider audience and wanting to use it..”
