How Big is BitTorrent? Big… Real Freakin’ Big
BitTorrent Inc. announced that its BitTorrent Mainline and uTorrent client software combine to serve 100 million users every month according to a report from TorrentFreak.
20 million users from over 220 countries load up one of the clients on an average day, 400,000 new clients are distributed every day. That adds up to a whole lot of users, and a whole lot of downloads (and perhaps one or two illicit downloads...).
"This is an exciting day for our team. Our vision is to build a complete technology ecosystem comprised of software, content, and devices designed to connect modern creators with a massive digital audience," BitTorrent CEO Eric Klinker said. "This milestone highlights the size of our user base and the power of our software."
