Ask HN: I've Built a DHT Torrent Sniffer and Search Engine. Should I Release?
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 23 Oct 2022
Sorry for the bad news: it's not going to work.
Can you filter the 95% spam and dead torrents?
It's very very hard what you are trying to do. Takes lots of effort to be somewhat usable. It's duplicating Google, withou their monopoly. A few have tried. My university lab has been building a torrent search engine for 17 years and 3 months. Fully decentralised, no servers, no browser, now called Web3. Burning 7 million Euro in tax payer money, building a distributed ledger in Sep 2007. So expect a long road ahead. (our engine: https://github.com/Tribler/tribler/wiki)
But... the whole point was that I don't have to pay for anything.

I think there was a tor torrent client, https://www.tribler.org/

I read this as mentioned by the developer, in my previous post.2 projects | reddit.com/r/tribler | 18 Jan 2022
Thank you very much for your ideas and suggestions! The second suggestion is something we have also been thinking about but critically depends on the performance of E2E encryption. This also already goes back to 2013, see [this issue](https://github.com/Tribler/tribler/issues/3) for example.

Yes, this is exactly what we are working on for 16 years now. Longest running torrent, trust and Tor-fork project: https://github.com/Tribler/tribler/wiki
Its as hard as making a decentralised Google and decentralised YouTube at the same time. Over 75 master students and PhDs put their coding efforts in it at Delft University.

I'd recommend Tribler for those worried about legal trouble.

Better than Tor, IMO. You can read more about i2p at https://geti2p.net, https://i2pd.website, and ask more in-depth questions in /r/i2p.

I2P (version 2.1.0): I2P anonymous network
I'm Done with Google
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Dec 2022
Sounds overly complicated. I prefer torrenting on I2P instead: https://geti2p.net.
ive tried really hard with my basic skills but i cany seem to install i2p
2 projects | reddit.com/r/i2p | 23 Nov 2022
i got somewhere from the geti2p.net website involving snap now i just have to figure out how to turn it off lol2 projects | reddit.com/r/i2p | 23 Nov 2022
which i got from geti2p.net but as a command it returns
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Whonix | 25 Sep 2022
I think i2p is better for torrenting.

How did you get I2P on your Mac? The official bundles from https://geti2p.net do not "install", you just drag-and-drop them into Applications and they do not touch any network settings.2 projects | reddit.com/r/i2p | 8 Aug 2022
How Tor is fighting–and beating–Russian censorship

Not only that, but so much attention is on Tor and there are irreconcilable problems with its architecture.
People should consider using I2P instead, which didn't come out of government research and has superior anonymity.
The downside is it doesn't have a browser bundle like Tor, but it's possible to configure Tor Browser to use it. Turning off scripting all together is really a better approach no matter which tool you use, be it I2P or Tor.
