We will be examining some of the historical price movements of the BitTorrent crypto in order to come up with a BTT price prediction for January 2020.
BitTorrent was a public venture company that had been operating since 2004 and provided the first widely adopted peer-to-peer technologies in the world. In 2018, BitTorrent was acquired by the Tron cryptocurrency project, which is owned by Justin Sun.
Tron then went on to develop a crypto for the BitTorent environment, based on the TRC-10 token standard, a TRON-based standard that enabled BitTorrent users to provide their services in return for said tokens.
TRC-10 is a lower standard to TRC-20, as the latter features built-in smart contract capabilities.
With BitTorrent and Binance supporting the project, Tron’s BTT sold out in just 15 minutes, amassing $7.2 million in the sale.
The main purpose of BTT is to encourage BitTorrent protocol users to seed and host files, activities that are rewarded with the tokens.
BTT is currently ranked 66th according to a market cap of $59.743.472, with a 24-hour volume of $83.397.371. The circulation supply is 212.116.500.000 BTT out of a total of 990.000.000.000 BTT.
BitTorrent (BTT) Price prediction: Analysis
After coming down from November $0.0004 levels, BTT opened December at $0.000310, dipping that day below the $0.0003 level, but then closed at the same value it started the day with.
Until December 7th, BTT fluctuated mainly between $0.0003 and $0.000310, with minor slips below $0.0003 but always rebounding towards the end of the day.
On December 8th, BTT saw a slight increase, as it began trading at $0.000317, with the upward trend continuing the next day. December 9th saw BTT opening at $0,000323, which was the month’s highest.
But bullish hopes were shattered, as on December 10th, BTT once again was trading at $0,000310, even going below the $0.00029 support, with a closing price of $0,000292.
December 11-13 had BTT trading between $0.00028 and $0.00029, with slight brushes at the $0.0003 level.
On December 14th, BTT recovered slightly by opening at $0,000301 and reached a new all-time monthly high of $0.000337. December 15th and 16th had promising opening prices at $0.000311 and $0.000315, respectively, but towards the end of BTT closed at $0,000288, below previous support levels of $0.00029.

The calculated support, pivot, and resistance levels by WalletInvestor are:
- Resistance Level (R3): 000324
- Resistance Level (R2): 0003083
- Resistance Level (R1): 00030035

The BTT coin became very popular after Tron announced its listing on Binance, a prominent exchange in the industry. Binance actually promoted BTTs initial delivery on their airdrop platform, Binance Launchpad. The coin later received support from crypto payment processor CoinPayments.
Not much has happened lately in terms of development for BTT, mostly just airdrop campaigns from Tron and lots of hype from Justin Sun.
BitTorrent is expected to receive backup from top companies in 2020, with rumors that there might be a collaboration with Spotify. But this is only speculation at this point.
According to Captainaltcoin, the “Bittorrent token (BTT) has been one of the most hyped ICOs in 2018. However, despite the big hype built behind it, there is a shroud of doubt around the token’s viability and general competence of Tron team to pull off the laid out plan. The only driving force for the BTT price is marketing gimmicks and speculation, two strong suits of Justin Sun which could cause a surge or two in the upcoming period; however, long-term BTT doesn’t seem to be a solid investment and price in 2020 might be artificially held around the same level as now – $0.0007.”
