Airdrop of BitTorrent Tokens for TRX Holders Until 2025

Holders of TRON (TRX) will receive, and will continue to receive, free BitTorrent Token (BTT) up until February 2025 initially through Binance Launchpad

Last month, 23 bln BTT tokens sold out in 13 minutes, 25 seconds on the Binance Launchpad; raising $7.1 mln. Today, Tron Foundation is giving away the TRC-10 token to incentivize new and long-term investors.

BTT Airdrop Mechanics

Roughly 10.1%, or 990 mln, of BitTorrent Tokens are set aside for the six-year airdrop. Every year the number of tokens distributed through the monthly airdrop will increase, according to reports. When the Tron blockchain attains a height of 6.6 mln, the team will take a TRX balances snapshot and give away the first batch of BTT via Binance Launchpad. The exchange platform stated that starting next week, 0.11 BTT will be received for each TRX a holder holds.

Wallets and Exchanges for the Airdrop Event

Aside from Binance Launchpad, a variety of exchanges offered support for the event. Among those are Bithumb, Huobi, OKEx, Upbit, Bittrex, Bibox, Gate.io, Coinsuper, Kucoin, and BitForex.

Wallets supporting the airdrop are the Tron Wallet and Trust Wallet.

Binance Launches DEX Testnet for Peer-to-Peer Crypto Trading

Binance has officially released its DEX testnet, a decentralized order-matching engine which will supposedly allow users to create wallets and trade cryptocurrency without trusting a centralized service. However, it also raises questions about how increased on-chain transactions will impact Bitcoin and whether Binance’s DEX really is decentralized. Binance Launches DEX Testnet for Peer-to-Peer Crypto Trading The world’s largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchange has released the testnet for its long-awaited decentralized exchange. According to a press release, Binance DEX is the company’s new decentralized order-matching engine powered by the Binance Chain technology. Binance users will be able to create a wallet and begin exchanging tokens on the Binance DEX testnet starting January 20. Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said that the new DEX will be able to provide users a “different balance of security, freedom, and ease-of-use.” Users will now have more control of their personal assets, as all of the responsibility for storing their info and assets will allegedly move to the user when using the DEX. According to the company’s press release, the matching on Binance DEX will happen within a decentralized network of nodes with all transactions recorded on-chain. That way, a complete, auditable ledger of activity will be created, the company explained. “Binance Chain has near-instant transaction finality, with one second block times. This is faster than other blockchains today,” Zhao said in the release. He also noted that Binance DEX can handle the same trading volume as Binance.com. Will Binance’s DEX Meet Expectations? If the Binance DEX manages to live up to expectations, then users will be able to hold their own seed words and private keys. If successful, in the future, if the exchange is hacked or Binance fails due to insolvency, all funds will still be accessible, providing a strong alternative to incidents like Quadriga. One potential byproduct of DEX adoption is an increase of on-chain transactions. Notably, because Bitcoin has limited on-chain transaction throughput and transactions tend to be more expensive compared to other crypto alternatives, then an increase of BTC trading via DEX could increase congestion on the Bitcoin network. If DEX use is pronounced enough, this could cause transaction fees and times to once again rise. ‘True’ Decentralization? Viktor Radchenko, the founder of Binance’s Trust Wallet, said that the company was one step closer to realizing their vision for “greater freedom of money” with the Binance DEX. However, it is unclear just how decentralized Binance’s DEX will be. The new platform will most likely have to comply with KYC protocols and will allow the company to profit from trading fees rather than distributing them to network facilitators or nodes. Many on Reddit have pointed out that Binance can never have a “truly decentralized” exchange as long as it’s based on its own chain. Competitors such as Blocknet and Stakenet are allegedly more decentralized, leveraging Atomic and Lightning Swaps to provide transactions that are purportedly faster, cheaper, and with fewer points of failure than Binance’s DEX. However, if Binance leverages its enormous user base and already successful platform, perhaps ‘pure’ decentralization won’t matter to the average user.
