There isn’t any doubt that TRON and BitTorrent will complement each other. BTFS will grow to be THE storage infrastructure for a decentralized community. Sooner or later, we are going to see extra DApps working with BTFS and constructing the community collectively. At present, the BTFS cupboard space mining competitors is in full swing.
