    "After extratorrents has closed for good, it lead me to this kinda better website (which was eventually caught as well). I don't know how this kind of websites are still alive in spite of the rampant blockings of different agencies and groups to prevent piracy. Anyway, ALL HAIL TORRENT!"

    "OMGGGG!!! 😱😱😱 I thought this has closed down already? Is this website legit??? Is this real?? Is TPB back now???"

WHAT’S THE MEANING

A Torrent is a file sent via the BitTorrent protocol. According to an article from The Technology Bay, Torrenting is when two computers or more share files over a peer to peer network. Basically, the computers send data to and one from another.

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that the Bram Cohen, the inventor of torrenting ( or the peer-to-peer distribution of files) used free pornography to lure free beta testers to his program? Cohen, 42, has made it publicly known that in 2001, after coding the protocol, he used free porn to lure free beta testers for his fledgling software. Aside from those who wanted free porn, Cohen’s protocol was also used by those who wanted to share television series and programs for Linux computers.

Because it is a way to share movies, songs, television shows, or any file for that matter, BitTorrent, as well as movie download sites, naturally became a threat to the entertainment industry. A 2018 study Digital TV Research group showed that piracy caused by torrenting sites like The Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents cost the industry more than $31.8 billion in revenue in 2017. Despite the huge damage inflicted to the industry, torrent inventor Cohen insists that he is innocent because he never used his own program to download illegal content because he knows he will be incarcerated for it.

    "iDope presents itself as a simple search screen, resembling Google's. The site bills itself as a "tribute to Kickass Torrents," presumably because Kickass has been shut down. I've found good luck with Extratorrent.cc, but iDope will make a solid alternative when searching for torrents to download."

    "I liked the relatively minimalist home page here ... just 5 films to gaze at, and a search box, though there were a few explanation links in the footer. They are clever though, the films on the page look pretty hot, and at the least have very attractive women gracing their "screen.""

    "TorrentFunk is great because they categorize torrents by type, so you can browse more according to your needs. My main concern is that they have quite a lot of torrents that don't have seeds, so it is quite difficult to download them. It might be a great option if they clean those and prioritize the ones that we can download at a high speed. Almost as good as the best torrent that has ever existed, The Pirate Bay."
