BitTorrent (BTT) Supported by Coinpayments’ Cryptocurrency Payment Gateway

We are pleased to announce that CoinPayments now supports BitTorrent (BTT), enabling millions of customers around the world to use BitTorrent (BTT) to purchase goods and services from hundreds of online merchants.

As we already work closely with CoinPayments to accept TRON (TRX), Bitcoin (BTC), and Binance (BNB) for our premium products, today customers can also pay in BitTorrent (BTT) for both BitTorrent and µTorrent Ads Free and Pro products.

“Coming this summer, BitTorrent Speed will be implemented into our popular Windows-based µTorrent Classic client to create a healthier ecosystem and a foundation where content creators can distribute their work directly across the web,” said Justin Sun, founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “In advance of this highly anticipated release, we look forward to working with CoinPayments and other partners to make BitTorrent (BTT) liquid in the online marketplace before BTT is fully integrated into our desktop and mobile products.”

To learn how to purchase BitTorrent or µTorrent Ads Free or Pro using TRX, BTT, BNB, or BTC, please visit our short step-by-step guide we published a few months ago.

Users who are interested in receiving real-time updates about BitTorrent Speed, BTT, and upcoming product launches are encouraged to follow the company’s official social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, and Telegram.
