Halving of BTFS Storage Rewards

BitTorrent

Singapore, May 28, 2024 – To sustain the growth and success of the BitTorrent ecosystem, BTFS is set to implement a halving on the next round of rewards for storage miners on the BTFS network. From 00:00 (UTC) June 25, 2024, the daily rewards for storage miners on the BTFS network will be halved from 15 billion BTT to 7.5 billion BTT. The BitTorrent File System (BTFS) is a decentralized file storage system that utilizes blockchain technology and peer-to-peer transmission. It allows users to store their files across multiple nodes in a distributed manner, enhancing file security and reliability. BTFS also offers rapid file transfer and access, giving users greater convenience in managing and sharing files. By integrating key features of the BitTorrent Chain (BTTC), such as cross-chain connectivity and multichannel payment options, BTFS significantly enhances user experience. Currently, the BTFS network is experiencing rapid growth with over 8 million nodes across the network, including more than 6 million super miners, according to BTFS SCAN. To support the efficient operations of these nodes, BTFS initiated a rewards program and has provided an aggregate of 25 trillion BTT since the launch of BTFS Mainnet in 2019. Every two years, the BTFS rewards halving will occur causing the rewards for all storage miners across the network to be cut in half. (Halving roadmap) Moreover, halving will also prompt miners to improve node performance by optimizing node operation and reducing waste. In addition, an upgrade of the official website for the BTFS technical community and the release of BTFS v3.0 Mainnet will be scheduled in sync with the halving. These developments are expected to improve the efficiency of the BTFS protocol, expand the user base, and enhance its overall functionality. Looking ahead, BTFS is committed to continuously refining its storage rewards strategies. The goal is to expand the network of nodes participating in file storage on BTFS, providing developers with an efficient, secure, and reliable storage solution boosting both the capacity and the transaction efficiency of the BTTC network. About BTFS The BitTorrent File System (BTFS) is both a protocol and a web application that provides a content-addressable peer-to-peer mechanism for storing and sharing digital content in a decentralized file system, as well as a base platform for decentralized applications (Dapp). The BTFS team has been working on the latest network operations and BTT market sentiment, etc., to make a series of dynamic adjustments such as upload prices and airdrop reward schemes. About BitTorrent Founded with a leading peer-to-peer sharing technology standard in 2004, BitTorrent, Inc. is a consumer software company based in San Francisco. Its protocol is the largest decentralized P2P network in the world, driving 22% of upstream and 3% of downstream traffic globally. Its flagship desktop and mobile products, BitTorrent and µTorrent, enable users to send large files over the internet, connecting legitimate third-party content providers with users. With over 100 million active users, BitTorrent products have been installed on over 1 billion devices in over 138 countries worldwide. Since November 2018, TRON (TRX), Binance (BNB), and Bitcoin (BTC) holders have the opportunity to purchase one-year subscriptions of BitTorrent or µTorrent products, including Ads Free and Pro for Windows. Pro includes anti-virus and anti-malware screening, file converting and playability in HD. Users can visit bittorrent.com or utorrent.com to learn more.

Agents Who are REALTORS® Preview Housing Market Trends for the Summer and Beyond

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Click here to view With the spring homebuying season in full swing, many Americans are contemplating whether it’s a good time to buy or sell a home. Higher mortgage rates, limited housing inventory and competition for the few houses on the market are some of the many reasons sellers and buyers should work with an agent who is a REALTOR® to find the right home and negotiate the terms of sale. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, single-family existing-home prices nationwide climbed 5% over the past year to a median price of $389,400. Greater than 90% of the country’s metro areas experienced home price growth in the first quarter of 2024 despite facing the highest mortgage rates in two decades. While mortgage rates are nearly double those seen during the first two years of the pandemic, they are still considered historically low. Moreover, homeownership continues to be a catalyst for Americans to build generational wealth. Over the past decade, the median-priced home in the U.S. gained nearly $200,000 in value, making the typical homeowner 40 times wealthier than if they had not purchased a home or remained a renter. An agent who is a REALTOR® can help you achieve the dream of homeownership and create long-term wealth and financial stability for your family.

Ballast Rock Announces Launch of Sunbelt Multifamily Fund III

Ballast Rock

Ballast Rock, the diversified investment management firm, today announced it has launched Sunbelt Multifamily Fund III LP (“SB3”), the third private equity real estate fund in its Sunbelt series. Ballast Rock is targeting a raise of $100 million for the fund, which, like the previous Sunbelt Funds, will focus on acquiring and renovating a diversified portfolio of workforce multifamily properties in the U.S. Southeast. Ballast Rock has identified and is performing due diligence on a value-add property that would represent the first acquisition for the new fund. “The broader real estate market has experienced tremendous uncertainty, given the rise in interest rates and disruptions in the credit markets. The team have patiently been assessing the long-term impacts of these changes on our target markets and are excited to have found a potential first investment for SB3” said Thomas Carroll, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ballast Rock. “We have remained constructive on our core focus, which is workforce multifamily value-add, specifically in the Southeast.” “Our team has diligently been underwriting deals since our last acquisition in early 2023 and has looked at close to 400 assets in that time,” said Ian Garcia, Chief Operating Officer and Portfolio Manager for the Sunbelt Funds. “We are extremely conservative on our underwriting and will only ever consider investing in a deal if we have a high degree of confidence that it is going to clear our stringent investment objectives.” Prior Sunbelt Funds Ballast Rock launched Sunbelt Multifamily Fund I (“SB1”) in 2019 and between February 2019 and January 2021 acquired nine properties totaling 1,110 apartment units for $63,630,000. SB1 began dispositions in early 2022, generating gross proceeds of $60,450,000 from the first four properties sold. The 593 apartment units involved were acquired at an average cost of $53,583 per unit and sold at an average cost of $101,939 per unit. Ballast Rock anticipates exiting the remaining five assets in SB1 opportunistically over the next 12 to 18 months. Sunbelt Multifamily Fund II (“SB2”), launched in 2021 and between February 2021 and January 2023 acquired nine properties totaling $101,408,000, with 1,039 apartment units. In April of 2023 Ballast Rock launched Ballast Rock Capital, its broker-dealer.
