Other Developments Related to Tron

Another big moment for the Tron network was the announcement that the BitTorrent token will launch later this year. The token sale will run exclusively on Binance Launchpad. The BTT token will be used by the BitTorrent users to enable faster downloads.
Justin Sun and the project lead provided more details about the BitTorrent (BTT) in a live stream on January 4th.

BTT is set to boost the adoption of the Tron network as well as blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general.
BitTorrent already has 100 million users who will be introduced to the new content distribution framework using BTT Token. However, they will also have the option to opt out if they do not want to use it.
This week the Tron Foundation also announced that after January 5, the names of TRC10 tokens would not be unrepeatable anymore. After this time, the token ID will be the only TRC10 token identifier on the network.
