Over 100 million Subscribers For BitTorrent

Torrent sharing and downloading client BitTorrent has announced that its software now has more than 100 million monthly subscribers worldwide.

The company has informed that it now manages around 400,000 daily downloads and around 20 million average daily users.

The client is often used for peer-to-peer sharing and downloading of pirated Hollywood blockbusters and music albums, much to the chagrin of recording companies and major movie studios, who are currently fighting free downloads.

Stats released by KickassTorrents reveal that some of the most popular searches made on the platform were Inception, Iron Man 2, 2010, XXX, French, Avatar, DVDRip, Despicable Me, Porn, and Clash of the Titans.

Eric Klinker, chief executive at BitTorrent, said in a statement: “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 content creators with a massive digital audience.”
