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.

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.
