BitTorrent has added Binance USD and BNB as payment option

According to the announcement on Twitter, BitTorrent users are now able to buy BitTorrent and µTorrent Classic Pro with BUSD and Binance’s native token, BNB.


Binance’s USD-backed stablecoin, as well as BNB (BEP2), the native asset on Binance Chain. With the help of CoinPayments.net, a leading integrated payment gateway provider for cryptocurrencies.

With the new addition, BitTorrent now totally features six crypto payment options on its platform. Binance’s BUSD joins the list of already supported cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), BitTorrent’s utility token BTT, Okex’s OCB, TRX, and BNB. For a limited time, the company is offering 25% off all crypto-based Pro purchases.

“Today we are pleased to accept BUSD as another digital payment option for Classic Pro for both BitTorrent and µTorrent users,” said Justin Sun, Founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “By using BUSD or our other supported cryptocurrencies, millions of customers can unlock powerful features such as malware protection from our popular desktop torrent clients.”

BUSD users may purchase one-year subscriptions of BitTorrent or µTorrent Classic products, including Pro, Ad-Free, and Pro+VPN for Windows. Pro includes advanced malware protection, no ads, an HD media player, file conversion, and premium customer support.

BUSD is apparently the first stablecoin featured on BitTorrent for payments. Samuel Lim, chief compliance officer at Binance, outlined that BUSD token is regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS). He said:

“We are thrilled to work with BitTorrent to offer BUSD, a NYDFS regulated stablecoin as one of the main payment options for purchasing Classic Pro. BUSD continues to grow in use cases and adoption within the industry,” said Samuel Lim, Chief Compliance Officer at Binance. “Holding stable value and built for convenient global transfers, stablecoins like BUSD will become the preferred choice of payments in the near future.”

Alongside the addition of BUSD, BitTorrent and µTorrent have also replaced BNB (ERC20) with the faster and more liquid BNB (BEP2) as a payment option. This follows the recently announced adoption of Binance Chain by CoinPayments.net and is expected to improve the experience for BNB users when subscribing to Classic Pro, the blog added.
