@poetgrant depends on your usecase.

Bittorrent lets you efficiently transfer data from one source to multiple mutually untrusting destinations.
But it provides no persistence.

@Wolf480pl Apropos that. I'm trying out yacy now and I'm not optimistic about its future.

I just keep finding new applications for bittorrent. Lbry.io is bittorrent based. A lot of neat projects use it. I just think it seems like we have barely scratched the surface of the protocol.
