MiniNova's Content Distribution is no Joke

Postby SlyckTom » Wed Jan 21, 2009 9:53 am

During the early days of P2P, many companies such as Morpheus attempted to promote up and coming artists as a way of deflecting criticism. This was fine and all, but in the end who and what got promoted was generally up StreamCast. But the arrival of BitTorrent has changed much of this in favor of the aspiring artist.

Take MiniNova's content distribution service. Featured front and center on one of the highest traffic volume BitTorrent websites, any aspiring artist or BitTorrent junkie with too much time on his or her hands can promote their work. It's simple as pie too. Just upload the work to MiniNova, and let Niek and the crew take care of the seeding and tracking.

To show just how popular and relevant MiniNova's Content Distribution has become, take a look at the number of seeders and leechers, not to mention the stats, for the featured torrents. DJ IceMoon, for example, is competitive with many of the mainstream torrents available elsewhere on MiniNova. It's quite apparent that MiniNova's effort to help artists is no gimmick, and it's great avenue to promote work. And today, MiniNova announced the 1000th participant.

"Content Distribution enables producers and artists to bring their work to the attention of the public, free of charge," Erik Dubbelboer, co-founder of Mininova said. "It’s the perfect solution for bands that don’t have the means to bring out a record yet. Since the launch in 2007, an average of three participants a day have registered."

According to o Dubbelboer, there have been over 5,800 uploads and an impressive 15 million downloads - which averages out to about 40 downloads a day since its launch in 2007. Not a bad way to get your work exposed to the masses.

its a great idea but mininova sucks when it comes down to sorting things out. its like putting everything into a giant dumpster and then trying to find crap in there. they really need create some tools in order to sort their shit mroe cleanly.
