Ask HN: I've Built a DHT Torrent Sniffer and Search Engine. Should I Release?

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 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.
