Entrepreneur Justin Sun, who founded TRON and acquired BitTorrent, a platform with over 100 million monthly users, has said he’s launching a secret project for BitTorrent and DLive, his newly acquired project.
The secret project, based on what the entrepreneur calls “conservative forecast,” will create multi-billion benefits and supports for the BitTorrent and TRON ecosystem.
According to Justin Sun, the said project is aiming at disrupting Periscope, Netflix, YouTube and Twitch. Interestingly, it is going to make use of BitTorrent’s BTT and TRON’s TRX.
Justin Sun also said the project will add at least 100 million new users to the ecosystem. While details of the newly thought-of innovation are yet to be released, Justin Sun says everything about the project would be released as soon as possible.
TRON Acquired DLive Blockchain Streaming Platform
TRON late 2019 acquired DLive, making the blockchain live streaming platform the latest acquisition of Justin Sun.
The acquisition comes not long after Justin Sun said he invested an undisclosed amount in Poloniex Exchange.
DLive and BitTorrent are to work together. Interestingly, DLive will completely migrate to TRON blockchain and synergize with Blive.
As well, the Ace Protocol Foundation, who are behind the Lino Network, also revealed a partnership with Justin Sun’s BitTorrent.
Lino Network will completely move out of Lino blockchain and the Lino will seize to exist afterward, while BitTorrent (BTT) will be the platform’s native currency.
DLive was launched around September 2018. Already, the platform has a teeming number of users and boasts of around 3.5 million monthly visits, data from SimilarWeb has shown.
The growth of DLive came after the platform partnered with YouTube’s most-watched internet celebrity, PewDiePie. The YouTube celebrity has pledged to support TRON, DLive and BitTorrent, and even wore TRON shirt in one of his episodes.
