Mininova Breaks Download Records

Mininova, the most visited BitTorrent site, broke two download records today. Since its inception, the site has served 6 billion torrent downloads and today reached an all time record of more than 10 million downloads served in a single day. Has today been BitTorrent’s busiest day ever?

The BitTorrent popularity explosion is still underway, and it’s picking up speed with the start of the new TV-season. Several BitTorrent sites are now amongst the most visited sites anywhere on the web, and Mininova is believed to be the largest.

We’ve been reporting on Mininova’s download figures for a while now. In June 2007 Mininova saw its 2 billionth download. This figure has since tripled to 6 billion - an impressive figure for a site that has been around for less than four years.

Over the past months, the downloads have been growing steadily, and today, another record was broken. Over 10 million torrents were downloaded in a single day - 117.6 per second - a rate never achieved before. With many TV-shows debuting today, this has been the busiest day ever on Mininova, and probably on other BitTorrent sites as well.


yeah, Slacker Uprising was tl today from me also on MiniNova. Glad to help you out MiniNova.
