As the pioneer of the most popular decentralized p2p communications protocol, BitTorrent is proud to have been elected as a Super Representative by the TRON community.  We acknowledge that a decentralized internet needs a foundation where DApp development can flourish on the TRON platform.  As a Super Representative elected by the TRON community, our role is important in building this foundation.  We thank the TRON community for voting for BitTorrent as one of the 27 SRs. By doing our part to help govern the TRON network and maintain the stability and reliability of the ongoing block generation, we help provide the backbone of the network to support thousands of 3rd party DApps and services and hundreds of millions of users.  Now we look to strengthen our infrastructure to service the TRON community for many years to come.  From the entire BitTorrent team, we again extend a big thank you!

The collaboration between BitTorrent and TRON is sure to contribute to an internet that is better and brighter. We are proud to become a candidate for the TRON Super Representative. BitTorrent hopes to share in a great revolution — to make the internet more democratic, free and decentralized, which we know is at the very heart of TRON’s values.

As BitTorrent runs an extensive infrastructure to support a massive worldwide user base, it’s perhaps the most qualified Super Representative candidate.

We are excited to announce that TRON has officially closed its acquisition of BitTorrent. BitTorrent has more than 100 million active users worldwide, and has one of the top-rated apps on Google Play and other products, including BitTorrent Play (iOS), uTorrent Web, and desktop clients for PC and Mac.

BitTorrent will continue operating from TRON’s new San Francisco location, which is now the center of operations for the company’s global market expansion. The division will provide robust support for TRON’s global business development and partnerships, while pursuing its vision for the world’s largest decentralized ecosystem.

With this acquisition, BitTorrent will continue to provide high quality products to over 100M users around the world. We believe that joining the TRON network will further enhance BitTorrent and accelerate our mission of creating an Internet of options, not rules.

Our attention has been drawn to the news items that have appeared in the past few weeks speculating about a change in BitTorrent’s business model.

We wish to reiterate that BitTorrent has no plans to change what we do or charge for the services we provide. We have no plans to enable mining of cryptocurrency now or in the future.

BitTorrent has been a pioneer of peer-to-peer file sharing and we believe our vision of democratizing the Web by enabling decentralized, resilient access to information remains as relevant as it was when we started.

We reiterate that we are committed to our hundreds of million users worldwide and will continue to invest and innovate in the BitTorrent and uTorrent products.

BitTorrent has always been a staunch supporter of net neutrality.  If you are not familiar with the principle, it’s an idea that internet service providers should not discriminate based on user, content, website, application, IP address, device, protocol, and so on.  As an example, ISPs shouldn’t be able to intentionally block a Web site.  Or,…
