Bram Cohen, the visionary computer programmer who created peer-to-peer file sharing protocol BitTorrent and the company of the same name, is no longer involved with the project following its sale to Tron and subsequent launch of a crypto token. He wants to make sure that you know that.
“I’m no longer in any way affiliated with BitTorrent and have never been affiliated with Tron or Justin Sun,” read the tweet, which is now pinned to the top of his page.
Since the beginning of January, Cohen has published seven tweets like this one, disclaiming any connection to Tron or its controversial decision to hold a BitTorrent ICO. However, despite his best efforts, it doesn’t seem that the message is getting through.
