In today’s article, we will be examining price trends and market opinion to put forward a BitTorrent price prediction for October 2019.
BitTorrent is probably the most known decentralized protocol, developed in 2001 by Bram Cohen for peer-to-peer file-sharing. Three years, the BitTorrent Foundation was established.
In early 2019, Tron launched their own coin, based on the TRC-10 standard of their network, which is lower than the TRC-20 standard, as it lacks smart contract capabilities. The BTT token allows users to make payments for the file shared and access more bandwidth for faster downloads.
The BTT coin had one of the most impressive crowdsales of all time. During its IEO on Binance DEX, the BitTorrent cryptocurrency managed to sell for 7 billion dollars in 7 minutes.
After this huge success, two weeks later, the BTT soared from $0.000012 to $0.001, which meant that the investors who purchased the coin during the crowdsale had an ROI of 800%.
BTT has a total supply of 990 billion BTT, which will be divided into smaller increments for extra liquidity (considering the sheer number of tokens, however, liquidity shouldn’t be an issue).
There are over 50 exchanges that currently support BTT trading, including Binance, Bittrex, Huobi, Upbit, Bithumb, and HitBTC.
BitTorrent Price Prediction: Analysis
BTT started October at $0.000411, rising in the first part of the day to its maximum of $0.000434, then followed by some dips, but ultimately closing at the same value, it opened the day. October 2nd started with the same value and saw some growth towards the end of the day, closing at $0.000436.
October 3rd opened at $0.000437, with BTT dipping back to 0.000415 levels throughout the latter part of the day before closing at $0.000424. The next days, BitTorrent fluctuated around $0.00042 mark, with highs of around $0.00043, and lows situated around $0.00041.
Although, BTT had an opening price of $0.000414 on October 7th, that day, the coin managed to briefly test 0.00044 levels before closing at $0.000439. The following days, BTT started testing new resistance levels of $0.00045 and $0.00047, then falling back to $0.00043 – $0.00044 support levels.
The highest value of the month was reached on October 10th, at $0.000477, the coin opening at $0.000460. October 11th opened at $0.000455 and started a descending trend, which continued up until October 13th, when it hit 0.000437. The coin gained back some momentum the following days, staying constant with their support levels of $0.00043 – $0.00044 until October 15th, when it dipped to $0.000421. BTT closed that day at $0.000427.
Since then, BitTorent has not managed to get back to $0.00043 support levels, fluctuating now between the range of $0.00041 and $0.00042.

BitTorrent saw a gentle positive price movement on October 21, when it touched $0.000422. The next day, BTT had an opening price as the previous day’s closing price, $0.000417.

In our BitTorrent price prediction, we will also be looking a bit at the coin’s relationship with bitcoin. From the charts, we can notice that most of the time, BTT tends to follow BTC’s price surges and dips. In terms of trading volume, BTT has been slowly recovering in the past three days, compared to the values it had in the previous weeks.
A project’s upcoming developments and road map can heavily influence the value of a coin, so we decided to include such an aspect in our BitTorrent price prediction.
The BitTorrent protocol has 117 public repositories on Github, but those that are about the BTT token are all private.
The team does not seem to have a proper roadmap, instead featuring more like a list of achievements. In Q1 and Q2 of 2019, the development team announced that they will be working towards completing the following roadmaps:
- Finish Wallet User Interface for stable client;
- Launch on-chain/off-chain exchange to an early access group;
- Publish BEPs related to BTT and tokenization of the BitTorrent protocol;
- Add wallet support for TRX and other TRC-10 or TRC-20 tokens;
- Test dApp integration into the network.
In recent months, Tron launched the mainnet of their BitTorrent File System (BTFS), which will enable BitTorrent users to upload, transfer, download, and store files through a peer-to-peer network. However, the BTT token has not been integrated into this system. Nevertheless, after the launch, BTT saw an increase of 10%.
BTT took a step back in terms of listings, as Binance removed the BTT/BTC trading pair from its platform at the start of October. It should be noted that the other BitTorrent trading pairs (USDT/BTT and BNB/BTT) are still available for trading on the platform.
