Friendster.io llc. partners with bittorrentX for decentralized video streaming on StreamZ
Social platform provides token incentives using the TRON blockchain
Utilizing TronCloud from bittorrentX, Friendster.io llc wants to bring peer-to-peer streaming directly from the bittorrent network to the Friendster.io llc platform for everyone to enjoy. Users maintain control of their data while sharing in network rewards by participating in the tokenized social economy.
"Our collaboration with bittorrentX brings lightning fast, tokenized decentralized streaming services to the Friendster.io social media platform, side stepping today's centralized platforms," said Troy Jones, founder of Friendster.io llc.
“dApp developers should not need to rely on centralized services like YouTube to host video,” adds Valerian Bennett, CEO of bittorrentX. “We are making it easy for ambitious projects like Friendster.io to use decentralized media streaming rather than Google or AWS. And, because of the utility of the TRON blockchain, our TronCloud technology allows every user to share in the rewards.”
Friendster.io llc is currently live and StreamZ is in development. bittorrentX recently released a live demo to showcase browser-based peer-to-peer streaming from the bittorrent network which is at the core of TronCloud. The strategic partnership expects to launch StreamZ later this year.
