BitTorrent recently announced that it would be coming up with new incentive plans for BTT users. The first incentive briefed about in the official Medium article pertaining to the announcement was user incentives. About BitTorrent user incentives, the team said:

“BitTorrent clients since the company’s inception in 2004 have been downloaded and used on over 1 billion devices. The peer-to-peer software currently serves over 100 million monthly active users globally, and the tokenization of its ecosystem through BTT is progressing as expected.”

Adding to it, the team said:

“We think there’s a great overlap between TRON and BitTorrent. P2P users have a profound understanding of distributed sharing, and it’s a remarkably similar technology that’s used at the core of the blockchain.”

Continuing with it:

“While we won’t reveal additional details for a few more weeks, this new initiative will accelerate education efforts for BitTorrent users about blockchain technology, and it will facilitate access to the latest BitTorrent technology and TRON’s ecosystem.”

Talking about it further, the team said:

“Following the start of the BitTorrent User Incentive Program, we expect the number of TRX holders will increase, consolidating TRON position as a leader within the blockchain industry. Meanwhile, the BitTorrent User Incentive Plan will build a foundation for subsequent CDN construction of decentralization.”

Moving on to partner incentives, the team said:

“Since its launch on January 28th, 2019, BitTorrent (BTT) has been listed on over 30 leading exchanges. including Binance, Bithumb, Bittrex, Bitfinex, Huobi, Upbit, OKEX, Gate.io and it has garnered support from leading wallets such as Trust Wallet, TronLink, Cobo Wallet and HuobiWallet.”

Adding to it:

“To make BTT and BitTorrent technology available to most people, the company soon will offer a Partnership Plan to all exchanges and wallets supporting BTT. This program will allow our partners’ users to receive BTT airdrops and explore the TRON and BitTorrent networks.”

Continuing with it:

“By incorporating this new audience, BitTorrent aims to gather feedback, enhance its protocol and let those new users enjoy the efficiency of its downloading services. while earning tokens by contributing to the ecosystem.”

Finally, talking about the ecosystem incentives, the team said:

“It’s worth noting that BitTorrent is not only a P2P client offering fast and reliable downloading capabilities, but it’s also one the earliest and largest open-source P2P download protocols in the world. Bitcoin’s founder Satoshi Nakamoto states in his mailing-list that it’s a great way to transfer value.”

Adding to it:

“Today, over 1 billion devices have BitTorrent based clients downloaded through BitTorrent and µTorrent. There’s also many other clients using its protocol. To make BTT available to most people and accelerate blockchain mass-adoption, BitTorrent plans to offer an incentive program to clients relying on the BitTorrent protocol so that their users too can partake in BTT. This new initiative sheds light on BitTorrent’s principle of being open-source, and it boosts the entire industry by promoting blockchain technology.”

These incentive plans would not only benefit the development of BitTorrent and TRON ecosystem but would also represent an all-new growth spurt for the entire crypto industry. The intent behind all of these implementations is to expand the user base and to scale the products of BitTorrent and TRON in such a way that the whole industry is benefitted from the changes.

This is certainly something to look forward to, coming from one of the very first decentralized products in the history of the internet.

BNB is now available across more than 150 CoinFlip ATMs.

Also Read: Binance Joins Justin Sun in ALS Campaign

Binance Labs has been active in the crypto industry with multiple initiatives undertaken by the company. Recently, Binance Charity Foundation participated in the ALS Campaign along with Justin Sun, the Founder of TRON Foundation, and CEO of BitTorrent.

In a conference in South Korea, Changpeng Zhao, the Binance CEO answered questions about the company’s relationship with the controversial stablecoin Tether. WhileBinance is one of the largest holders of Tether, he said that the ‘concern is always there’.

One of these questions came from Ran Neu-Ner who asked about the impact of a possible tether crash on Binance. Mr. Zhao responded to this,

We have seen fiat currencies go down in history a lot. Probably more times than they have been in cryptocurrencies. So yes, the concern is always there and that’s also why we’re listing other stable coins as well, so we actively promote other stable coins including True USD and others.

Mr. Neu-Ner also asked Zhao questions about the relation between Bitfinex and Tether. A lot of experts in the cryptocurrency industry have accused both of these of Bitcoin price manipulation, with some people going to the extent of actually attributing the entire price run-up of Bitcoin in 2017 to Tether’s inflation, however, another study gave an opposing revelation.

Mr Zhao commented on this as well. He said,

I haven’t personally seen their bank accounts.But from a logical point of view they have so many profits from their regular exchange business, they don’t need to do anything crazy about the Tethering. I think the reason they cannot release their bank account details is if they release whichever bank they’re using, then the bank account gets shut down.

As opposed to this interview, the general criticisms against Tether have slowed during the middle of the year. However, another study suggests a Tether collusion with Kraken to which the exchange took to its blog and accused the media and journalists of understanding little about how the industry works. Furthermore, last month, Tether brought in an establishment figure as a head of its compliance division, perhaps in efforts to diminish future fear.

According to a recent tweet by the TRON Super Representative, Sesameseed, SEED is now available for trading on ABCC Exchange.

$ETH $SEED is now live on @ABCC_Exchange for a total of three trading pairs including $BTC and $TRX.

New partnership celebration campaign includes #TRX, #SEED and other #TRON tokens. While supplies last!

Details https://t.co/WFsya1QyQ4

— Sesameseed (@sesameseed_SR) March 22, 2019

As of now, you can only trade SEED against Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and TRON (TRX). In the future, however, more pairs might be added.

Also Read: SEEDGerminator IDEAS is now Live!

According to an official Medium article by the TRON Super Representative, Sesameseed, SEEDGerminator IDEAS is now live and accepting applications.

Through the program, applications selected would receive funding of up to 400,000 TRX. For projects which require more than 400,000 TRX in funding, the projects section is always open.

Informing the audience about the first ideas listing which is currently live, the article said:

“TronMarketCap is a market capitalization index for TRON which will include many free features for users. It will be a comprehensive TRON index that will help promote trust and security in the TRON ecosystem.”

Adding to it:

“TronMarketCap will provide users of the TRON blockchain with information similar to what is found about other blockchains at Coinmarketcap.com. This includes ranking tokens by marketcap, price, volume, circulating supply, and 24 hour price changes. There will also be historical price data and graphs.”

Talking about the other ideas listing, KUDI Games—TronScratch, the article said:

“The TRONscratch DApp is a browser based decentralized game based on the popular “Tic Tac Toe” game. It is a multiplayer game where each of the players stake equal amount of TRON against one another.
TRONscratch has an interesting reward model and is the first offering from KUDI Games. KUDI Games is a major element of the KUDI Ecosystem designed to bring Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies to Africa’s economy.”

The project was received well in the TRON community. Sesameseed’s previous initiatives too were well-accepted by the community. When compared with other crypto communities, the TRON community is quite accepting of innovation. They are generally more likely to accept projects which are totally new in the market and have little or no market presence. It is perhaps because of such a community that the cryptocurrency has become a hub of innovation.

Talking about it further, the team said:

“Following the start of the BitTorrent User Incentive Program, we expect the number of TRX holders will increase, consolidating TRON position as a leader within the blockchain industry. Meanwhile, the BitTorrent User Incentive Plan will build a foundation for subsequent CDN construction of decentralization.”

Moving on to partner incentives, the team said:

“Since its launch on January 28th, 2019, BitTorrent (BTT) has been listed on over 30 leading exchanges. including Binance, Bithumb, Bittrex, Bitfinex, Huobi, Upbit, OKEX, Gate.io and it has garnered support from leading wallets such as Trust Wallet, TronLink, Cobo Wallet and HuobiWallet.”

Adding to it:

“To make BTT and BitTorrent technology available to most people, the company soon will offer a Partnership Plan to all exchanges and wallets supporting BTT. This program will allow our partners’ users to receive BTT airdrops and explore the TRON and BitTorrent networks.”

Continuing with it:

“By incorporating this new audience, BitTorrent aims to gather feedback, enhance its protocol and let those new users enjoy the efficiency of its downloading services. while earning tokens by contributing to the ecosystem.”

Finally, talking about the ecosystem incentives, the team said:

“It’s worth noting that BitTorrent is not only a P2P client offering fast and reliable downloading capabilities, but it’s also one the earliest and largest open-source P2P download protocols in the world. Bitcoin’s founder Satoshi Nakamoto states in his mailing-list that it’s a great way to transfer value.”

Adding to it:

“Today, over 1 billion devices have BitTorrent based clients downloaded through BitTorrent and µTorrent. There’s also many other clients using its protocol. To make BTT available to most people and accelerate blockchain mass-adoption, BitTorrent plans to offer an incentive program to clients relying on the BitTorrent protocol so that their users too can partake in BTT. This new initiative sheds light on BitTorrent’s principle of being open-source, and it boosts the entire industry by promoting blockchain technology.”

These incentive plans would not only benefit the development of BitTorrent and TRON ecosystem but would also represent an all-new growth spurt for the entire crypto industry. The intent behind all of these implementations is to expand the user base and to scale the products of BitTorrent and TRON in such a way that the whole industry is benefitted from the changes.

This is certainly something to look forward to, coming from one of the very first decentralized products in the history of the internet.

Ripple has released the latest episode of On Campus on Ripple Insights. This episode talks about how the University of Kansas (KU) is blending academics and blockchain under Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI).

Talking about future innovators the article said:

“Professor Alexander fundamentally believes that the study of blockchain and other new technologies is the foundation to building the entrepreneurs and workforce of tomorrow. He observed that industries advance in new technologies as they hire workers that have studied these technologies more extensively and are more familiar with how to apply and manage them.”

Adding to it:

“That’s why he believes ubiquitous commercial applications for blockchain are still a generation of startups away. Current and future students need time to explore and manipulate blockchain—especially in the context of interdisciplinary study—so they are better attuned to how they can more widely commercialize the technology.”

Continuing with it:

“He was adamant that while blockchain is a fascinating technology on its own, it requires people from across the vast spectrum of academia to make it effective. He pointed to his department’s own cybersecurity work as an example. It’s well known that one of the core security flaws in most systems is not technological but rather social in nature: consider the employee who misplaces a badge or password versus a deficiency in technology.”

Finishing it off, the article said:

“This same integration of sociology is critical when thinking about how to use blockchain to move money between people without banks as intermediaries. This is why Professor is so excited about the chance to engage business, law, psychology and other schools in KU’s blockchain work.”

The article then moves on to “Blockchain for Biodiversity”, which is an interdisciplinary approach. One of the early examples of this approach was a project which Professor Alexander initiated through UBRI for testing how blockchain can support data access control for biodiversity teams.

Talking about it, the article said:

“While it’s easy to imagine that discovering a new animal or plant would be important to share with the world, the opposite is actually true. Professor Alexander learned that immediately making the discovery of new species public could put it in jeopardy, so scientists employ security controls to protect these new findings.”

Adding to it:

“As part of UBRI, KU is sponsoring joint research with blockchain and biodiversity teams to explore a blockchain-based security protocol for these new discoveries. For example, if an American and Swiss team found a new insect in Mexico, blockchain could encode the rights along with a smart contract to grant access and rights to governments and researchers in all three countries while keeping the information confidential from the rest of the world.”

A demonstration of this capability might help make funders more comfortable while sponsoring future efforts.

Talking about the application of blockchain in art, the article said:

“Professor Alexander is also pursuing other intriguing cross-department research projects into blockchain. Based on his past interactions with staff at the university’s Spencer Museum of Art, he is exploring an exhibition on the visualization of different blockchains.
Through a partnership with the visual arts team, he hopes to create an intriguing way for people outside of the computer sciences to discover and potentially be inspired by the technology.”

It can also be used for cataloging artwork with the help of blockchain.

Cybersecurity is another field of application for blockchain. Talking about Professor Alexander’s hopes with the technology for cybersecurity, the article said:

“He believes that blockchain has a lot to offer when it comes to identity and network resiliency—both fundamental components of cybersecurity. Ultimately, he imagines blockchain being a critical part of aggregated trust approaches that can more effectively manage the enormous scope of devices involved in the Internet of Things.”

To conclude, the article said:

“In the end, Professor Alexander was generous in his comments about Ripple and UBRI—what he termed a “game changer” for KU. He hopes to use the grant to expose more students to the technology in novel ways.
He says students are the best tech transfer mechanism, and that providing them with these opportunities and interactions is the reason a university exists.
By showing them what blockchain makes possible, he hopes to influence the next generation to develop the next economy.”
