BitTorrent (BTT) Throws Another Jab at Filecoin (FIL)

In brief:

  • In a recent tweet, the team at BitTorrent (BTT) has highlighted why the BTFS file system is better than Filecoin (FIL). 
  • The teams behind both projects have been throwing jabs at each other ranging from accusations of plagiarism and going as far as claiming the other is ‘vaporware’.
  • Filecoin’s (FIL) Mainnet is set to be launched between mid-July and mid-August. 

In a recent tweet, the team at BitTorrent (BTT) highlighted why its BTFS file system is better than Filecoin (FIL). The tweet showcased how the BTFS system has more to show than Filecoin that is yet to launch its mainnet after several postponements. The lack of Filecoin having a functional product is the focal point of the debate as to which is better. The full tweet by BitTorrent made 8 comparisons that can be found below.

Previous Tweef Between Filecoin (FIL) and BitTorrent (BTT)

The recent tweet by BitTorrent is a follow up of a Tweef that transpired in mid-April between Justin Sun and Juan Benet of Filecoin (FIL). Benet was the first to point out that BTFS’ new logo looked like it had been plagiarized. His remarks alluded to the fact that Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation have been accused of borrowing ideas from other open-source projects.

Aaaaaahahaha it’s not enough to fork all our code, rebrand it and lie its theirs; copy paste random chunks of our papers, and defraud their investors with a nonsensical mishmash. Tron also can’t even think of an original logo.

Justin Sun was quick to respond to the acquisitions by asking if the hexagon shape on the new BTFS logo was owned by Benet. Sun went on to accuse Filecoin of copying BitTorrent’s technology. Additionally, he slammed the project as being ‘vaporware’ with no functional product.

Filecoin’s (FIL) Mainnet Launch in 2020

Both the Filecoin and Tron ICOs were carried out in September of 2017. However, Tron has a wide range of achievements under its belt more than Filecoin. As earlier mentioned, the key to the whole discussion is that Tron launched its mainnet in mid-2018 and Filecoin has yet to launch its final version of the platform. At the time of writing this, Filecoin has set its mainnet launch for mid-July to mid-August this year.
