According to the announcement, users can now use TRX, Binance Coin (BNB) and Bitcoin (BTC) to purchase 1-year subscriptions of BitTorrent or µTorrent products, including Ads Free and Pro for Windows. The Pro products include anti-virus and anti-malware screening, file converting and playability in HD.
“BitTorrent joins a growing list of online companies whose products and services accept TRX as payment,” said Justin Sun, the founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “With BitTorrent’s over 100 million users, the move helps increase the use of TRX in online marketplaces while giving consumers more options to unlock value from BitTorrent’s premium products.”
TRX is currently trading for $0.0125 with an $823.7 million market cap, making it the 10th largest coin in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index that doesn’t include stablecoins.
