BitTorrent Hits Over 100 Million Active Monthly Users, 400K Daily Client Downloads

BitTorrent, announced a key milestone, growing to over 100 million worldwide monthly users of its two software products — the original BitTorrent Mainline, and the iconic µTorrent.

In 2010, BitTorrent unveiled new initiatives to make the BitTorrent user base more accessible to forward-thinking content creators, including a new Spotlight Artist program to help content creators distribute independent works. The company has also directly distributed a number of films in partnership with VODO, including Pioneer One, Yes Men, Four Eyed Monsters, and an album from PAZ.

Additional average user statistics:

  • daily active users: Over 20 million
  • daily client downloads: Over 400,000
  • 52 languages (including English)
  • Clients checking in from over 220 countries every day

Using BitTorrent protocol, files are distributed in small pieces from peer-to-peer without the need for centralized data centers. These files are downloaded from many different origins in pieces and are also uploaded in pieces at the same time to other consumers, which means that the more people who’re downloading a file, the more who’re also concurrently uploading it to others, so availability increases as demand increases.
