BitTorrent creator: “never been affiliated with Tron or Justin Sun”

Tron [TRX], the ninth largest cryptocurrency in the space, has been making a lot of buzz in the space. This has led to the coin gaining a lot of attention from other communities in the space as well. The main reason it is currently a hot topic of the space is its BitTorrent acquisition.
BitTorrent is considered to be one of the biggest acquisitions in the space as it has always been greeted with high-regard by several influencers in the space as it is the largest file-sharing peer-to-peer platform around the globe and because of its use-cases.
The speculation of Tron acquiring the platform was doing its rounds in the space much before the actual announcement. Additionally, some reports claim that Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of Tron Foundation, had filed for a temporary restraining order on the platform as the software company had started look for more prospectus bidders. In the end, the Foundation acquired the biggest Torrent platform for over $140 million.
This was soon followed with news that employees had started to take the exit route after the acquisition, wherein five employees were confirmed to have left the firm. This turned out to a major blow for the Foundation as they released a statement clarifying the entire situation, citing that despite some taking the exit gate there were many who joined the bandwagon.
Now, Bram Cohem, creator of BitTorrent, has spoken about the Tron and the Founder on his official social media handle. He said on Twitter:
“I’m no longer in any way affiliated with BitTorrent and have never been affiliated with Tron or Justin Sun”
Along with this, the creator also spoke about the speculation of Sun investing in his current project, Chai Network. Cohem has clarified that neither Sun nor the Foundation have any shares in the project.
Chris Burniske, Partner at Placeholder said on Twitter:
“@Tronfoundation’s$TRX is pumping because it will allow people to claim #BitTorrent-coin ($BTT). Though, per tweets like Bram’s & other whispers, Tron is just shilling BitTorrent’s brand, while talent bleeds & workability of $BTT is an afterthought.”
Recently, the Former Chief Strategy Officer of BitTorrent, Simon Morris was also in the limelight for his statement against the Foundation’s current project and Justin Sun. In an interview with Breaker Magazine, he stated that Tron network will not be able to process BitTorrents’ transactions.
Nonetheless, this was soon brushed off by Sun, wherein he claimed that the team will be opting for on-chain/off-chain transactions and ensure that Tron network will be able to handle the token’s transactions.

Tron Price Analysis: Oracle Partnership Rumor Pumping TRX?

Tron Price, surge 5.2 percent
Oracle—Tron Partnership rumor yet to be confirmed
Transaction volumes low, likely to build up ahead of 4 cents retest

Days after NiTron, TRX is making good progress and is solid above 2.5 cents as traders search for buying opportunities in lower time frames. Add this to a probable partnership with Oracle, the path of least resistance seems to be up.
Tron Price Analysis
Fundamentals
News has it that Oracle is the latest software company to “partner” with Tron. As a smart contracting and dApp platform with ambitions of dislodging Ethereum as a go-to platform, this announcement should be making waves. Oracle is one of the world’s leading software company offering diverse services ranging from cloud applications to a multi-model database management system.

Oracle #blockchain team visited #TRON Foundation HQ in SF.Diving deep on #SmartContracts #Tokenization and partnership opportunities. #TRON to the future. #TRX $TRX https://t.co/Hq3Y4IETlW
— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) October 20, 2018

Back in 2014, it was the second largest software company by revenue streams after Microsoft.  In a tweet, Justin Sun said a blockchain team from Oracle had visited their San Francisco offices. However, we cannot get ahead of ourselves and confirm that there indeed is a partnership without official confirmations.
Justin confirmed that aside from discussing smart contracting and tokenization, they did touch a topic or two on “partnership opportunities.” At the moment, nothing is official despite Sun’s row of strong claims during the Summit.
Candlestick Arrangements

On the chart, TRX is less than $150 million away from displacing Litecoin as the eighth most valuable coin in the space. It remains a top performer, adding 5.2 percent in the last day and breaking away from the 2.5 cents mark as bulls aim to reverse Jan 10 losses.
At this pace, our TRX trading conditions are live. Both sets of traders can add to their longs at spot prices with fitting liquidation levels at Jan 21 lows of 2.5 cents.
Targets will remain the same, and as long as prices are trending above 2.5 cents, the double bar bull reversal pattern of late Dec 2018 and Jan 13-14 will be valid and indicative of the current trend.
Technical Indicator
Even with this, participation volumes are low—averaging 20 million at the time of press which is low when compared to those of Jan 10—95 million. Regardless, the trend remains bullish, and participants are maintaining this pressure meaning that the retest of 4 cents would be volatile and probably backed with high volume surges.

Crypto Market Wrap: Tron Outperforms Top 50 With 10% Gain

Market Wrap
Crypto markets are flat once again, Tron is on a flyer while Bitcoin goes deeper into bear territory.
There has been no sign of any upwards movement on crypto markets which have remained bearish below $120 billion. The only good news is that there has not been another major dump (yet) and things have remained stable over the past 24 hours.
Bitcoin has not broken above $3,600 over the past day but has stayed steady at $3,580 for most of it. A few hours ago BTC started to move south again with a drop to $3,560 and things are looking grim as daily volume drops below $5 billion.
Ethereum has not moved since this time yesterday and is still stuck at $117 in bearish territory. XRP however has fallen back a percent or so reducing the market cap gap back to $750 million. Both crypto assets are consolidating below previous levels of support though so could fall further.

Only one altcoin in the top ten is pumping at the moment and that is Tron. Yesterday’s news of the massive BitTorrent token airdrop has likely to have driven fomo hungry traders back to TRX as it posts a 9.5% climb on the day. TRX has reached $0.026 (730 satoshis) with trade volume doubling overnight, it has outperformed the top 50 and is closing up on Litecoin in eighth which has not moved on the day. The rest of the top ten is also motionless at the time of writing.
There are a couple of glimmers of green in the top twenty, namely Monero and Nem making very minor gains. The rest are flat or falling back a little with Iota leading the drop at 1.6% down.
The very erratic Buggyra Coin is getting pumped again as today’s fomo champion of the top one hundred with an 80% spike. Factom has also made a 20% jump on the day but only these two are gaining double figures. Following its pump over the past 48 hours TenX is falling back again now dropping 10% making it the day’s worst performing altcoins at the time of writing.
Total market capitalization has not moved much over the past 24 hours and is still around $119 billion. Daily trade volume however has fallen back to $14 billion as things ice over again in crypto land. Over the past seven days markets have contracted by 4%, a similar loss can be measured on the monthly chart.
Market Wrap is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 cryptocurrencies during the current trading session and analyses the best-performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

BitTorrent Announces BTT Airdrops for Tron TRX Holders

The BitTorrent token sale is one of the largest and most talked about ICOs of the year. In an effort to boost sales for the new token and the price of Tron, the company has announced a series of airdrops.
Incoming BTT for Tron Hodlers
Starting on February 11 this year and ongoing until 2025 BitTorrent will be distributing BTT tokens to holders of Tron’s TRX. The initial snapshot will be taken when the block height reaches 6.6 million, a counter can be viewed on tronscan.org.
The announcement states that based upon this snapshot the BitTorrent Foundation will initiate the first airdrop of 10,890,000,000 BTT, which corresponds to 1.1% of total circulating supply. Over the following 12 months a further 11.88 billion BTT will be issued to TRX holders increase the fraction of the total to 1.2%. The percentage airdropped will increase by 0.1% per year until it reaches 1.7% in 2025 whereby the figure will be 1.4 billion tokens per month. The medium added;
“To reward TRON’s long-time TRX holders, the BitTorrent Foundation also plans to airdrop additional 99,990,000,000 BTT, during online and offline events, corresponding to 10.1% of the total circulating supply.”
Tokens will be issued on a one to one ratio meaning one TRX gets one BTT and there is no minimum TRX to be held. There has yet to be any confirmation on what exchanges will be supporting the initiative but it is likely all the major ones will. Justin Sun took to twitter to warn users about scams “Be careful with scams. Official airdrops will be announced on our social channels, website, and blog.”
niTROn Summit a Success
Tron has just concluded its first summit during which the BitTorrent token sale was detailed heavily. Former pro basketball start Kobe Bryant was one of the leading figures at the event which the team are touting as a huge success;

#niTROn2019 successfully ended. Thanks for the participation and support from all #TRONICS, #TRON to the future. #TRX $TRX pic.twitter.com/YvIWA38E0P
— TRON Foundation (@Tronfoundation) January 19, 2019

A few bold predictions have come via observers and supporters of Tron including TRX surpassing EOS and becoming the fourth largest cryptocurrency in 2019. It is currently in ninth place with a market cap just below $1.6 billion. The gap between TRX and EOS in fifth is only $500 million so at this stage it is entirely possible.
At the time of writing TRX was trading down 3.5% on the day and pretty flat over the past week despite good fundamentals. Airdrops are usually a good way to boost prices and free BTT make give Tron the momentum to climb that chart and target fifth spot.

Crypto Market Tumbles: EOS, Tron (TRX), Bitcoin Cash, ADA Price Analysis

The total crypto market cap made a sharp U-turn and declined below the $115.00 support.
EOS price is down around 5% and it broke the $2.45 and $2.40 support levels.
Bitcoin cash price is under pressure and it recently broke the $125 support level.
Tron (TRX) price failed to stay above the $0.0250 support and it could revisit $0.0220.
Cardano (ADA) price declined more than 6% below the $0.0450 support level.

Bitcoin and the whole crypto market fell sharply in the past few hours. BTC, Ethereum, ripple, EOS, BCH, ADA and altcoins are currently under a lot of selling pressure.
Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Bitcoin cash price failed to stay above the $130 support level and recently started a sharp decline against the US Dollar. BCH/USD declined below the $126 and $125 support levels to move into a bearish zone. The price is down around 5.5% and it may continue to move lower towards the $120 or $118 support levels.
If there is an upside correction, the previous supports near the $125 and $126 levels may now act as barriers for buyers in the near term.
EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis
EOS price is down around 5% after it failed to gain pace above the $2.65 resistance. The price declined below the $2.50 and $2.40 support levels. The next key support is at $2.30 where buyers are likely to emerge.
Tron price trimmed most of its recent gains and declined below the $0.0260 and $0.0250 support levels. TRX price is down 3.5% and it seems like it may continue to decline towards the $0.0220 support.
Cardano price fell more than 6% after it broke the $0.0460 support. ADA price is now trading near the $0.0430 level, with an immediate support at $0.0420. The next major support is at $0.0412, followed by $0.0405.

Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there was a sharp downside reaction from well above the $122.00B level. The market cap dipped sharply below the $120.00B support and a major bullish trend line on the same chart. It opened the doors for more losses and the market cap reached the $112.00B support level. There may be a short term correction, but upsides in BTC, ETH, tron, litecoin, EOS, ripple, XLM, IOTA and other altcoins remain capped.

Tron is expected to launch BitTorrent livestreaming feature in 2019, says Foundation

Tron [TRX], the ninth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, continues to strive forward in the market. The Foundation has made another announcement pertaining to their next big plan for BitTorrent, one of the biggest Torrent platform around the globe with over 100 million monthly users.
The announcement regarding their next steps was made during the niTron summit 2019, the very first conference hosted by Tron. Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation, stated that BitTorrent could launch a livestreaming feature. This could be one of the biggest agenda of the team as this launch would mean going against the biggest tech firms in the world like Facebook, Youtube and Twitch.
Tron Foundation said:
“If everything goes as planned with #BTT, #TRON is expected to launch BT’s livestreaming feature in 2019.”
Moreover, during the summit, Justin Knoll, project lead of Project Atlas, spoke about the BitTorrent protocol. He stated that the BitTorrent token [BTT] complements the BitTorrent incentive mechanism and that BitTorrent’s speed would enhance the BitTorrent protocol by changing the operational principles of the clients.
He further revealed that Tron will be playing a key role, connecting BitTorrent protocol and its users, who will be able to download much faster. Knoll also stated that the incentive mechanism would encourage users to seed more on the network. Justin Sun also unveiled BitTorrent speed, a blockchain based application, during the summit.
J Walker, a Twitterati said:
“Only live streaming app that you can reach large groups with are social media apps. If you can make this with business class moderator features this would be huge. WebEx/ BlueJeans can only do 15,000 live views thats why you have to use periscope. leveraging the P2P network with compute also helps with POPS. The media server would be closer to connect for the most part on such a large network.”
Zander Perk, a Redditor said:
“This will be an interesting way for artists to get paid. Wonder if it will catch on. If it’s a solid UI that loads quickly and operates as effortlessly as YT, they could have a solid amount of users.”

Tron [TRX]’s Justin Sun: We want to become the most famous brand in the world

In almost a month’s time, Tron [TRX] has managed to grow multifold by doubling its value and become the ninth the largest coin on the CoinMarketCap. At the time of press, the coin was valued at $0.0250 with a market cap of $1.6 billion. The coin has a 24-hour trade volume of $175 million with a growth of over 2% in the past 24 hours. The coin has, however, slipped by 0.10% over the past hour.
The Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Tron, Justin Sun is in the middle of all that the company has to offer, especially its much-awaited niTRON summit, a Tron sponsored conference in San Francisco. The conference begins today and features stars like former NBA star Kobe Bryant as keynote speaker, along with Sun and an executive from Swisscom AG, a $25 billion telecommunications company, reported Bloomberg.
Sun, recently bought the file sharing application BitTorrent for $120 million in 2019. The announcement of BTT tokens which runs on the Tron and BitTorrent networks has proved to be beneficial for the company as the demand increased for the coin. The Chief Executive Officer [CEO] at researcher Messari Inc. said to Bloomberg in an e-mail:
“A lot of people wrote off Tron as all hype/marketing and no substance, but they made a lot of noise with the BitTorrent acquisition, and now I think it’s an open question of whether they will be one of crypto’s most high profile ‘fake it til you make it’ success stories,”
The CEO also added:
“It’s been wild to watch.”
Along with the company, Justin Sun is becoming popular as the face of the company and increasing following on the social media site, Twitter. Sun told the publication in an interview:
“We want to become the most famous brand in the world”.
Sun elaborated saying when someone thinks about cryptocurrency, Tron will be the first one, while drawing parallels to the popularity of Bitcoin [BTC]. While the smallest unit of Bitcoin is called Satoshi, after its creator, Tron’s smallest unit is called sun after Justin Sun. As per Sun, Tron had raised $70 million in Initial Coin Offering [ICO] which is largely untouched.
Sun shared a similar vision for BitTorrent and so do many others. Justin Knoll, head of the BitTorrent project said to the publication that their goal is to convert all the 100 million monthly users of BitTorrent into cryptocurrency users. BTT could be used to increase the download speed of the movies, and tip the performers, but eventually it will be used for paying for site storage, informed the head of the project. Sun had informed that BitTorrent is profitable and is generating around $25 million in revenue per year.
The aim of the company is to increase the number of distributed apps, such as games running on their network. Tron currently has 107 Dapps compare to Ethereum’s 1,374 as per DappRadar. However, this number will increase as Sun recently announced up to $100 million funds for developers who are creating Tron gaming apps.
Tron also claims to have much faster transaction times compared to Ethereum as it uses a different mechanism for verifying transactions. Tron’s 27 super representatives produce the blocks that are then voted for by the account holder of the cryptocurrency. Ethereum, on the other hand, uses miners to verify transactions, which also now moving to the proof-of-stake system. Sun said:
“Converting to PoS is a huge effort. It’s like moving a building a block away. It might be easier to tear down the building and rebuild it. It doesn’t work that way. For Ethereum, it may cost them a year or two to migrate, and that seems optimistic.”
