- Tron finally acquires BitTorrent, the details of the deal remain out of the public.
- Tron price is battling to break above the descending trendline with eyes locked on $0.048 short-term resistance zone.
Justin Sun, the founder of Tron is reported to have quietly completed the purchase of the software company BitTorrent Inc. The company also maintains the file sharing protocol BitTorrent. The deal went through last week and has managed to stay under wraps until the BitTorrent management informed the staff of the acquisition. The stakeholders are aware of the deal, however, the employees of BitTorrent were asked not to share the information relating to the deal publicly.
In May this year, there was news that Tron had an interest in buying BitTorrent, but apparently, Justin had been talking to BitTorrent management since September 2017. The process has not been a smooth one even though Sun signed a ‘‘letter of intent to acquire’ the company in January this year.
