BitTorrent teases decentralized chat client in the wake of security breaches

01 Oct


Today, BitTorrent announced it’s building a private instant messaging client for our post-PRISM world. The firm told CNET that BitTorrent Chat should function like the company’s other peer-to-peer services, using a form of torrenting’s decentralized technology-approach that’s been adapted for real-time communications. And while compatibility with other IM protocols is expected in the future, for now it’s exclusive to BitTorrent account holders. You can even apply for an invite into the pre-alpha at the BitTorrent Labs site — if you’re so inclined, that is. by engadget
