More than a week passed since the first public sale of BitTorrent Token on Binance Launchpad which took place last Monday, on January 28.
Back then, we reported that Justin Sun and Changpeng Zhao shared some pretty exciting news on Twitter in which they were praising the successful sale that they have been preparing for quite a while.
The BTT sale went amazingly
The whole crypto community waited to see how the BTT sale would go, and it went great, just as expected.
Binance detailed the success of the sale in an official blog post, and Zhao said that things would have gone even better if some minor tech issues would not have hit the platform.
“Both sessions concluded. Took about 18 minutes, due to a system issue, would have taken 18 seconds otherwise. Demand was astronomical,” Zhao posted.
It is official: In the BNB session, all 23.76 billion BTT were sold to token sale participants within 13 minutes and 25 seconds. Meanwhile, in the TRON session, all 35.64 billion BTT were sold within 14 minutes and 41 seconds. #BTT $BTT #BitTorrent #TRON https://t.co/C1dqxRkO2l
