BitTorrent Chain (referred to as “BTTC” below) is the first scalable heterogeneous cross-chain interoperability protocol on TRON, featuring PoS (Proof of Stake) consensus mechanism and multi-node validation. It supports smart contract extension through sidechains and is compatible with Ethereum-based smart contracts. Together with many other functions it boasts, it enables developers to migrate and develop DApps on the chain without a hitch.
1.2 Supported Public Chains
BTTC now supports the cross-chain transfers of assets from Ethereum, TRON, and BSC (Binance Smart Chain) to BTTC. Moving forward, BTTC will support more public chains.
1.3 Supported Tokens
BTTC now supports the cross-chain mapping of mainstream tokens in the market to BTTC. As it is an ongoing process, more tokens will be supported as time goes by.
1.4 BTTC Wallet and Cross-Chain Bridge
Cross-Chain Bridge (referred to as "the Bridge" below) is an application that connects different chains. With the Bridge, users can deposit assets from Ethereum, TRON, and BSC to BTTC, or withdraw assets from BTTC to Ethereum, TRON, and BSC.
Validators are important participants on BTTC. Validators pack blocks through node validation and submit Checkpoints to the corresponding mainnet to complete data synchronization among different chains. In this way, validators can ensure network security and receive both Checkpoint rewards and transaction fees as rewards.
Users who want to become a validator need to stake a certain amount of BTT and run the validator node 24/7.
1.6 Voters and Voting Rewards
Any participant on BTTC can vote and receive voting rewards. Voters vote (stake) with the TRON-based token BTT (TRC20), and will get part or all of validators' Checkpoint rewards based on their number of votes. Voters will be rewarded with BTT (TRC20), which they have to claim manually.
