    Yeah but was never really confirmed afaik. Either way we were at 0.107.16 for a year+ now and as it is we cant go backwards so if there actually is an issue updating might resolve it. An attempt was made to bump to the latest version (0.115.4) with #455 but it broke the build due to some utp-native new dependency having issues in Windows ( so it was rolled back to the last one before that dep (0.108.6) with #456. For now its locked to that until some things change with Webtorrent so we can bump to latest version (these 2 PRs that Ivan mentions in need to be merged or closed by Webtorrent devs, or they find some other solution for that utp-native issue)

    I use this as well. WebTorrent
  • I created a new decentralized social platform powered by a transparent algorithm designed to promote trust and unity in society, rather than division. Satellite needs users. If you agree with our mission I invite you to consider crossposting your essays there.
    Our servers periodically archive everything signed by users to create an "epoch", which is like a bundle of all the content and interactions on Satellite during some period of time. Each new epoch, in turn, is itself signed (by @satellite, as the epoch signer) and published on a decentralized network. Clients of Satellite (including your browser right now, if you're reading this on automatically contribute to hosting these epochs' metadata via WebTorrent, ensuring that the entire dataset representing the cumulative state of the network up until the most recent epoch always is available, resilient, and exportable—even if Satellite's servers go down.
  • Developing a bit torrent client
    I would suggest learning about peer to peer connections first, as it is the base of torrent. Regarding resources I would recommend this talk about building a torrent client in the web. Although it is written in javascript the concepts are the same for python. The repo for the project shown in the talk is here
