Breaking: World’s biggest Torrent search engine Torrentz.eu shuts down permanently!
This is most definitely the biggest news in the torrent world right now following the shut down of Kickass Torrents by the US government 2 weeks ago. The seize on Kickass was brought upon by the arrest of Artem Vaulin in Poland who is regarded as the founder Kickass.
Torrentz.eu was one of the oldest Torrent based websites on the internet.
No explanation has been given behind the decision yet. However the website does say “Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.”
Torrentz.eu was a free search engine for searching torrents. It did not host any torrents of its own. But it did combine search results from the biggest torrent websites like Kickass and Piratebay.
The website had a very simple interface which is evident in the screenshots. This simple interface was one of the reasons people were using it.
The website is also showing a second message which says “Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines.“
With the recent shut down of Kickass, a lot of mirror sites popped up afterwards. Same could happen with the Torrentz site but so far we haven’t witnessed anything from our end.
