The leader has promised to make a public announcement in the next three days and has urged the Tron and BitTorrent users to glue their eyes for the announcement. Based on the latest rumors doing rounds in the industry, the new acquisition for BitTorrent might be the well-known blockchain-pegged content distribution solution, Steemit.
Earlier, a local Chinese news portal published a report about Justin Sun gearing up to integrate Steemit into his platform. Though, at that moment, Justin and his team did not refute the claims altogether. However, later, Nadav Dakner, the CEO of InboundJunction & Marketacross, a PR and media firm, revealed that the report was fake and had nothing to do with the real facts.
Interestingly, the rumors garnered attention from the domain owing to the fact that Tron and Steemit are official partners, as was declared by the Tron Foundation in the 2018 niTRON summit.
BitTorrent has established itself as a globally renowned communication protocol designed for P2P sharing of distributed data and files over the Internet. It was acquired by the Tron network in July 2019 which strengthened the position of Tron in the crypto arena.
