More on BTT
The team at Binance has gone ahead and given an in depth analysis of the BitTorrent token. In it, they explain how the BTT token is going to extend the peer-to-peer platform by creating a token-based economy for networking, bandwidth and storage resources. BTT will incentivize users to allow others to make use of their spare resources thus boosting the efficiency of file sharing.
Existing BitTorrent users can use optional backward-compatible protocol extensions which will allow them to buy and sell bandwidth in a manner that will be synchronized with their cryptocurrency wallet and bidding engine. BTT will initially be used as payment for requesting upstream bandwidth. With time, its use will expand to include the purchase of content, tipping live stream performers and crowdfunding media creation.
