Decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) giant network BitTorrent has today announced the Golden Wallet Sweepstakes. The competition will run between Sept. 7, 2021, at 4.00 PM PT through Oct. 11, 2021. Five lucky winners will emerge of which four will be awarded 1M BTT (BitTorrent token), while one will have the grand prize of 10M BTT (at least $50,000). Each of the 1M BTT winners will be announced every week for four weeks and thereafter the grand prize winner will be picked.
To enter, participants need to download the free or Pro version of any BitTorrent or µTorrent client so long as it contains a BitTorrent Speed wallet. Thereafter, they need to follow the guidelines outlined which are prompted during users’ initial launch of BitTorrent Speed. Other than the Sweepstakes offer, those who activate the speed wallet enjoy faster download speeds in addition to rewards in BTT tokens. Participants can also enter through email.
“Millions of users throughout the world have discovered the benefits of a tokenized BitTorrent protocol through the use of BTT,” said Justin Sun, founder of TRON. “By launching the Golden Wallet Sweepstakes, we hope to drive additional awareness about an important BTT use case, which helps drive faster download speeds and a more healthy BitTorrent ecosystem overall.”
Eligible Sweepstakes torrent clients can be downloaded on µTorrent Classic, µTorrent Web, BitTorrent Classic, BitTorrent Web. There are zero entry fees and participants do not need a purchase obligation to be eligible to win.
