The oldest active torrent on the internet - [internet]
03:08 PM EDT - Sep,30 2018 - post a comment

In 2003, an era before YouTube and streaming, a Matrix fan film aptly dubbed "The Fanimatrix" could only affordably be distributed via a then-novel technology, BitTorrent. Incredibly, the torrent created on September 28, 2003 is still going strong 15 years later, and according to TorrentFreak, it's the oldest active torrent on the internet.
In a New Zealand Herald report from 2003, the film's director Rajneel Singh noted that the torrent had been downloaded 70,000 times is just one week. An impressive statistic, even by today's standards.

BitTorrent was not only able to handle all the downloads, but it was also a serious cost saver. The film crew did some back-of-the-napkin calculations at the time which showed that BitTorrent saved them roughly $550,000 in bandwidth bills during the first month alone.

Frost and the team were blown away by the experience. And while the film is dated by today's special effect standards, it's good to see that people are still interested. Whatever their reason may be.
