BitTorrent Chain has proactively worked to expand its DeFi capabilities by integrating noteworthy projects like Sushi, SpookySwap, and Kyberswap. It has exciting plans with projects including Pyth.network, QuickSwap, and Graph set to be introduced in the coming months.
What is the BitTorrent Chain?
Launched on September 15, 2021, BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) is a collaborative project between TRON DAO and BitTorrent. As a first-of-its-kind scalable cross-chain protocol on the TRON network, BTTC employs a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism leveraging various sidechains for the scaling of smart contracts. BTTC is Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible and allows for interoperability between blockchains like Ethereum, TRON, and BNB Chain. This allows for seamless exchange of assets and enhances connectivity within the DeFi ecosystem. Central to the BTTC ecosystem, the BitTorrent Token (BTT) plays a crucial role in incentivizing network participation and content sharing.
