Few people know about the two failed attempts made by BitTorrent, former P2P leader, to transform itself into a media company after its decline from the height of BT download.
Justin Sun, CEO of one of the largest blockchain-based operating systems in the world Tron, has acquired a software company BitTorrent. The latter is not going to shift its services in light of the deal.
On Tuesday, August 18th, Filament, an enterprise technology company, closed $5 million in funding led by Bullpen Capital, Verizon Ventures, Crosslink Capital, Samsung Ventures, and others.
The updated uTorrent version doesn’t have the bitcoin miner, which used the computer power of its customers to mine virtual currency.
