On the first day of October, the crypto market is bathing in the green, with Tron outperforming the top 13 assets at the time of writing. The most likely reason for that is that the Tron and BitTorrent CEO Justin Sun has taken to his Twitter page to announce the launch of the long-expected BitTorrent File System (BTFS) mainnet.
A big step forward! #BTFS has been successfully integrated to #Bittorrent Client. Q3 targets 100% accomplished! #BTT will be fully integrated into #Bittorrent decentralized economy in the near future. Ready to embrace the revolution?$BTT $TRX #TRX https://t.co/qREhsaxheG— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) October 1, 2019
BTFS mainnet goes live
BitTorrent has spread the word about the release of the BTFS mainnet via its Medium page.
BTFS has completed its official launch of the mainnet, representing a new starting point for BTFS and a big step towards the integration of BitTorrent ecosystem.
The BitTorrent team has added more than 3,000 new BTFS nodes to the BT Client when rolling out the mainnet. Two main features are now supported by BTFS. The first one is that users can now get rid of directories and files through the command line. The second one is that users can now import their Tron private keys, a BIP39 seed phrase or generate it securely.
The team promises that BTFS will ensure more flexibility for storing data and better security of files, as well as giving files bigger value during exchanges on the network.
TRX and BTT prices surge, as BTFS fulfills its Q3 goals
On the news of the BTFS launch, Tron’s TRX has surged around 11 percent, outperforming the higher standing coins on the top-13 list.
BTT has shown growth of 6.84 percent.
The second-best performing asset after Tron’s TRX is EOS, showing a price surge of 9.49 percent.
Thus, BTFS has fulfilled its goals for Q3 2019. As per the Medium post, the team now intends to conduct further integration of it with BitTorrent. Later this year, the mainnet will support all dApps on Tron.
Also, in 2020, BTT is going to be integrated into BTFS to be further used as an incentive for users who do file-sharing.
