TRON Set to Decentralize the Web
The TRON CEO recently shared an interview, where he talked about decentralizing the Internet. Sun stressed that people are in need of decentralization and that they need an alternative store of value.
BitTorrent was also mentioned in the interview as an integral part of the future that TRON holds for the decentralized Internet. He said that the reason for the acquisition of BitTorrent is that TRON and BitTorrent have the same vision — they both believe in decentralization.
