BTCjam’s mission is to offer affordable credit everywhere. There are a lot of people especially in developing countries that cannot fulfill their needs or dreams because don’t have access to affordable credit, or sometimes to any credit at all!

Corey Henderson, co-founder and CTO of RecordSetter, shares how at the 2015 Bay to Breakers road race in San Francisco, BitTorrent Sync played an important role in helping the team transfer hundreds of Gigabytes of video footage under less than ideal Internet access:
The Sync mobile app gives you a way to access all of your shared files on the go, without the need for any cloud storage. Whether you’re reviewing a work document, checking out a video clip, or backing up you the photos/videos to another device, it’s fully private and in your control.
Back in the day, everything you put into Dropbox was synced to all of your computers. As more cloud storage solutions arrived, they behaved the same way. Users eventually demanded that some files sync but not others, and “selective sync” was born. You could simply choose which folders to sync and which ones to just leave […]
It’s been a few weeks since we took the beta tag off Sync and introduced version 2.0. Each week, we publish a story here that showcases how a customer uses the product, and we’re quickly learning some of the areas where Sync has been most useful.
If someone shares a large folder with you, or there’s a folder you need on another computer, you may want access to it but don’t want to sync the entirety of its contents onto your device. When connecting to a folder, you are presented with a “Sync all” toggle, which allows you to choose if […]

Let’s say there’s a folder of files you’d like to access on your mobile device; maybe there’s something you need to review on the train ride home, or there’s a project file you’d like to show a client. Whatever the reason, the process of getting this set up can be challenging. Sync makes this very […]

In this week’s edition: Entrepreneur Matt Henderson shares how Sync helps him organize files at home, from important documents to things that his entire family needs access to.
Photos and videos take up a lot of space on our phones, especially with the resolution increasing with each new device that comes out. Typically when we think of backing up our files, it involves uploading them onto a cloud service.
Getting work done these days can often include little more than a laptop. It’s helped give rise to the nomad worker, an individual who’s not tied to a central location – working wherever it makes best sense (maybe they’re a freelancer, a remote worker, or self-employed). In this scenario, when a person does work anywhere/everywhere, […]
Matt Singley is the CEO of Singley + Mackie, a creative digital agency based in Los Angeles with associates around the world: When I co-founded our agency in 2010, one of the core values we established right away was to let our employees and contractors be “intellectually green”, which often includes working remotely instead of in a central office. […]
When you create an account in the cloud, all your folders and files become instantly available across your personal devices; it’s quite convenient. Recently, we rolled out a new feature in Sync to make this available, in a fully private manner.
One of the most amazing features of BitTorrent Sync is how easily it works over local networks (LAN), and therefore how it’s able to continue to function even without Internet access. Flying through the air in a metal tube is pretty amazing too, but what about a scenario that brings Sync’s local network capabilities to today’s business […]
