Tron Hoping For Napster-Like Revival Of P2P With BitTorrent Offering

If you have ever counted down the hours as your (often illegal) music file downloaded, then you probably remember the heady days of Napster and Lime Wire, as peer to peer file sharing was the norm.

As internet speeds got faster, interest in P2P wained and by the time streaming services such as Netflix arrived, the market was all but forgotten about but for techies.

Still, like the arcade game of Tekken, there's something that draws this millennial back to the P2P market. Which is why I was fascinated to hear that one of the largest blockchain based operating systems, Tron, has bought out Napster rival BitTorrent.

I grabbed the opportunity to chat to Tron CEO, Justin Sun, to find out exactly why he thinks P2P will bring blockchain to the masses, currently predicted to add 100 million monthly users to the blockchain sector.
