The BitTorrent site has hitherto been funded by other methods such as banner advertising but, as the digital currency makes it far harder to trace funding, Bitcoins are a viable option for those who want to support the site anonymously despite (or perhaps because of) its slightly problematic legal standing.

For those fond of symmetry, the payment method also provides a neat mirror of the site's own functionality, being as it is an anonymous peer-to-peer service.
