BitTorrent is splitting in two, spinning off its file-synchronisation tool Sync into a business-to-business company called Resilio. Current CEO Eric Klinker will be the boss of that company, leaving BitTorrent to focus on its bundles media business under co-CEOs Robert Delamar and Jeremy Johnson. “It was clear from the growing user base and interest from enterprise companies that Sync offered an amazing business opportunity,” wrote Delamar in a blog post. “It was also clear from the more than 30,000 creators and hundreds of millions of fans attracted to our Bundle program that we had a massive opportunity by focusing on media.” That means what remains of BitTorrent will be “solely focused on building a global consumer media platform, which utilises the BitTorrent protocol to enable creators to monetise their art and distribute their work to our global network of 200 million fans”. More details on that soon.
