BitTorrent Speed Will Be Live in Q2 2019
In other news, BitTorrent’s token (BTT) could have its use case as early as Q2 2019, as BitTorrent Speed, the application on which BTT will be used, is set to launch then.
As explained in the tweet above, BitTorrent Speed will be the revolutionary application that utilizes the BTT token to reward users for seeding and increased bandwidth on the peer-to-peer file sharing service.
Basically, users will receive incentives in BTT to share (seed) the files, thus increasing download speeds and as well as the selection of downloadable files. This will not only increase the reach of BTT, but also the entire peer-to-peer file sharing ecosystem should improve as a result.
Moreover, BTT’s long-term vision goes far beyond file sharing.
As stated in the project’s whitepaper, BTT will eventually provide a distributed infrastructure platform to third-party app developers. This will allow users to benefit from a borderless economy with computing resources being exchanged for BTT tokens.
