Project Atlas

Connecting the BitTorrent peer-to-peer network and the TRON blockchain network.

Faster Downloads

BitTorrent peers can offer tokens to incentivize other users to run clients on fast networks and to seed torrents for longer periods, leading to better swarm longevity and faster download speeds for all swarm participants.

More Seeds

Users can earn tokens for continuing to seed files after a download is complete. Storage and bandwidth will be infused into the torrent ecosystem, causing a rising tide of higher availability and longer torrent lifetimes.

“For transferable proof of work tokens to have value, they must have monetary value. To have monetary value, they must be transferred within a very large network - for example a file trading network akin to bittorrent.”

Introducing Project Atlas

Project Atlas will connect the BitTorrent peer-to-peer network and the TRON blockchain network via a set of bittorrent protocol extensions, a custom token, and an in-client token economy to address existing limitations and open a new borderless economy for exchanging value for computer resources on a global scale.

No Mining

Users who participate will exchange tokens with each other on the basis of resources provided, not mining. The TRON blockchain is safeguarded by a delegated proof-of-stake system that exists alongside the Project Atlas token economy.

Backward Compatible

We are developing an optional set of bittorrent protocol extensions, so Project-Atlas-aware clients will be fully backward compatible with all BitTorrent clients in use today.

Timeline

We are working to create a detailed roadmap for Project Atlas. Please sign up for updates below and follow Project Atlas on social media to keep up to date on future announcements.
