Get faster download speeds and BTT token rewards.
BitTorrent Speed is available as a feature of BitTorrent and µTorrent Web, as well as µTorrent Classic.
With BitTorrent Speed enabled, downloaders will have the option of providing tokens to uploaders in exchange for faster download speed. By introducing an incentive of earning BTT tokens, uploaders have a reason to seed files longer, and to dedicate more of their bandwidth and storage to other torrent clients in the network. BTT, which serves as a crypto torrent token in BitTorrent Speed, is responsible for powering a healthier BitTorrent protocol.Learn more
How it Works
Enable BTT and enjoy faster download speeds.
Step 1 - Enable your wallet
When downloading or upgrading to a new version of BitTorrent or µTorrent Web, or µTorrent Classic, the torrent software will be enabled with a wallet and BTT token balance.
Step 2 - Enjoy faster download speeds
When downloading torrents, BitTorrent Speed automatically bids BitTorrent (BTT) to other users for faster speeds. Just use the torrent program like normal, there is nothing else you need to learn or do.
Step 3 - Earn BTT
When a torrent file finishes downloading, you can automatically earn BitTorrent (BTT) by seeding. The integrated wallet allows for secure storage of your BTT, which you can send to other wallets.

BTFS is both a protocol and network implementation that provides a p2p mechanism for storing and sharing digital content in a decentralized filing system.
Traditional file storage systems have many disadvantages, including centralization or control by a single entity, the ability for governments to censor, higher costs, and low fault tolerance.
BTFS is a decentralized file storage system supported by millions of BitTorrent user nodes.* By running on the blockchain, which has a Delegated proof of Stake method of processing blockchain transactions, BTFS addresses these limitations. BTFS represents the first decentralized storage system that can be used by decentralized application (DApp) developers. Soon, BTT will be introduced into the BTFS ecosystem to incentivize a fair and abundant file system.Learn more
