The torrents community has been tumultuous these past few weeks. First, the government seized Kickass Torrents after the owner’s arrest. Now, one of the largest search engines has vanished.
Over the past couple of years, the torrent community has been struggling. First, Kickass torrent owner arrested and then Torrentz.eu the largest torrent search engine just disappeared.
According to TorrentFreak, Torrentz.eu unexpectedly shut down on Friday, disabling its search functionality. The domain is still active, but currently, the site just features the search bar with a message in the past tense: “Torrentz.eu was a free, fast, and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines.”
Torrentfreak just mentioned, torrentz.eu shutdown the operation without any knowledge. The domain is still live. There is just a message on the search bar “Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines”.
Torrentfreak tried to reach out the torrentz, but no response from the owner. It is unclear why torrentz.eu shutdown?
There are other torrent Search Engines emerging very day. Kickass torrent clones are popping up every week claiming to be just like kickasstorrents.
I do not think anything will change. The torrent communities are strong; they will not die the torrents.
However, I still see how many torrents sites are working just fine. I have compiled a list for the viewers.
