What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent is a decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing and torrent platform that allows users to exchange files with each other instead of downloading them from a central server. It was initially conceived by Bram Cohen and became popular in the early 2000s among the music and movie communities.

In July 2018, BitTorrent was acquired by blockchain platform TRON, which added several new features to the platform, including the launch of BitTorrent token, a native cryptocurrency. BTT is a TRC-10 token that is used to incentivize users to use the platform and help solve network issues. It can be used by users to buy and spend BitTorrent tokens to request files or increase their download speed, while users who share files on their systems are rewarded with BTT.

Beyond file sharing, the team behind BitTorrent is also working on BitTorrent-related and BTT-enabled applications, such as the BitTorrent File System (BTFS), which is a decentralized file storage system that was built by forking the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and built on Ethereum. BTFS allows users to store and share files on a decentralized network, providing a more secure and efficient alternative to traditional file storage systems.

One of the main features of the BitTorrent Token (BTT) is BitTorrent Speed, which allows users to buy BTT tokens in exchange for faster download speeds on the BitTorrent network. This provides an additional incentive for users to use the platform and contribute to the network, helping to improve its overall performance and reliability.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy asset, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your cold wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your cryptos.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano crypto wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano cryptocurrency wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your tokens.
