The BitTorrent File System (BTFS) is an innovative decentralized file storage system that allows users to securely store and share data on a global peer-to-peer network. As a revolutionary upgrade to the traditional BitTorrent protocol, BTFS uses blockchain technology to provide a more efficient, reliable, and scalable file storage solution.

What’s new with BTFS Scan?

In keeping with the project’s commitment to continuous improvement, BTFS has released the latest version of its scanning tool, BTFS SCAN v2.4.2. This new version brings several updates and features that will greatly enhance the user experience.

Among the new additions, users will find a new Storage Price field. This feature aims to provide a clearer and more transparent view of the cost of storage resources within the BTFS network. By having access to more detailed pricing information, users can make more informed decisions regarding their storage needs.

Another key feature in this update is the inclusion of the Contract module on the home page. This new module allows users to view and manage their contract information more conveniently. By centralizing contract information in one accessible location, BTFS is streamlining the user experience and enabling users to have better control over their data and transactions within the BTFS network.

Finally, BTFS SCAN v2.4.2 brings mobile adaptation and user experience optimization. Recognizing the importance of providing a seamless experience for mobile users, BTFS has focused on enhancing the performance and usability of its scanning tool on mobile devices.

What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent, headquartered in San Francisco, was established on September 22, 2004, by Bram Cohen and Ashwin Navin. Recognized as the premier decentralized P2P protocol, it specializes in transmitting data and extensive files across the Internet.

In 2018, the TRON Foundation acquired BitTorrent, ensuring sustained support for the BitTorrent and uTorrent clients.

BitTorrent introduced the BitTorrent Chain, a pioneering scalable cross-chain interoperability protocol. This development instigated the BTT redenomination strategy, culminating in the genesis of BTTC as the platform’s new core token. This redenomination saw the original BTT exchanged at a 1:1000 ratio.

In conclusion, BTFS SCAN v2.4.2 is another step forward in BTFS’s mission to provide a secure, efficient, and user-friendly decentralized file storage solution. These updates showcase BTFS’s commitment to continuous improvement and innovation in the decentralized file storage ecosystem.
