BitTorrent Speed is a new product integrated into the uTorrent Classic Client that rewards users with BTT in exchange for seeding and bandwidth, enabling faster downloads. The concept of BitTorrent Speed was aimed to solve the problem of having a low number of altruistic seeders in the ecosystem. By introducing an incentive for seeders, we hope to encourage the BitTorrent community to share their bandwidth.
