We are pleased to announce our BitTorrent Live streaming service, which will allow you to create live content and connect on mobile devices with people who share common interests. The service will allow for continuous live streaming anywhere users can get internet access, and you will be able to engage directly with the broadcasters to give instantaneous feedback, comments and virtual gifts.
“Imagine chatting with your favorite athlete, becoming immersed in a music festival, or meeting new friends to share your passions – all by simply firing up the BitTorrent Live app,” said Justin Sun, CEO of BitTorrent. “Our strong foundation of decentralized technology will allow us to fulfill our vision of a boundary-free internet while being at the forefront of a new content experience.”
In the coming months, BitTorrent Live also will incorporate blockchain technology to enable cryptocurrency to be used as a payment option. Our plan is to roll out BitTorrent Live globally in phases.
