Justin Sun announced yet another support for the token exchange from a crypto exchange and a wallet. The latest reports confirm that the Tron founder has acquired BitTorrent but Sun has yet to say anything on this. However, TRX price has yet to experience any greens yet.
All about the agreement
Talks regarding acquisition between Sun and BitTorrent were in the air since last September after several meetings Sun eventually signed a letter of intent to acquire in January 2018.
However the proceedings of the dealings were not very easy going, it witnessed many ups and downs, Sun also filed a temporary restraining order against BitTorrent for shopping around to other bidders, because as per Justin Sun BitTorrent had promised them to not to pursue other offers.
But apparently, everything got resolved. Sun finally uplifted the restraining order against BitTorrent and another legal entity called ‘ Rainberry Acquisition LLC’. Coincidentally BitTorrent had changed the name of their operating legal entity to Rainberry INC. in 2017.
A news was released in May this year regarding, TRON’s acquisition of BitTorrent. Sun filed for a change of status of Rainberry Acquisition LLC due to the merger with the California Secretary of state, BitTorrent also filed for the merging of documents on the same day with the name of Rainberry INC.
Media reports suggest that on June 11 the deal was believed to have been secretly closed last week. This was apparently announced with an email from BitTorrent’s management to staff confirming that the acquisition was complete, certain key stakeholders were also informed about the deal by the transfer agent who finalized the deal.
However the deal has been kept a little secretive, employees of both the company had been given strict instructions to not to disclose about the deal and no public announcement was made until the last date.
