Tribler, the anonymous BitTorrent “impossible to close” adds its own blockchain to reward those who share the most

This is Tribler , the open source program to share files via P2P that has been in development for more than a decade, and which we have talked about before to create an anonymous and “impossible to close” BitTorrent.
