The Tron (TRX) and crypto communities have been made aware of the upcoming BitTorrent (BTT) airdrop, and this was done by the CEO of both projects, Jusin Sun. Sun announced two days back via Twitter and highlighted the fact that the first airdrop would be held on the 11th of February in 2019.
His tweet was: “On February 11th, 2019, the BitTorrent Foundation will be initiating its first-ever airdrop of the BitTorrent $BTT to the TRON $TRX holders.”
