After the general introduction on the product, Joyce moved on commenting on the recent election results stating: “we really look forward to working with the other Super Representatives and to ensure the future of a decentralized internet”.
According to Joyce, BitTorrent has been working towards a decentralized internet since 2001, while the collaboration with Tron can be a “merging of great technologies because Tron has the same vision and mission as BitTorrent”.
“The only difference is that Tron brings its expertise in cryptocurrency. Joyce reveals that their next step is to start creating a platform that will enable distributed applications for systems”, continued Joyce.
