Bittorrent speed not earning at all

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I install and run bittorent speed, i seeded 26 torrents for 3 days nonstop, but total earning is 0, same results in home and in the office, Windows 10 Pro version 20H2. Upload speed is ~ 10 Mb/sec. Total seeded is about 50 TB. Connected BTT users ~ 100. What's happening, i don't earn single coin?

Hi there.

It's a common misconception that users are being "rewarded" by some centralized application for the amount they seed. 

In the reality, Speed only establishes a free market where users pay other users for the content they want faster. 

If seeded content is not on demand or the number of open slots higher than the number of leechers there would be no reason to pay for the download.

All these pay-receive relationships involve only users. BitTorrent doesn't play a middleman.

Where is setting for open slots in Utorrent? Do you mean in Preferences/Bandwidth Number of connections? I set Global maximum number of connections - 2357, Maximum number of connected peers per torrent - 2137 and Number of upload slots per torrent - 14.

Yes. It's in the number of connections.

Pretty much the more open slots you get the less contention your files receive.

So, what settings for these you recommend? For  Global maximum number of connections, Maximum number of connected peers per torrent and Maximum number of connected peers per torrent. My upload speed is 100mbit/sec (10mb/sec).

Unfortunately I can't do the recommendations on what settings you choose. 

I hope I gave you an understanding of how the demand-supply model works in Speed.
