For BitThief 0.3.0Publisher's description


BitThief is a Internet software developed by Distributed Computing Group. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for BitThief:

BitThief is an ongoing research project of the Distributed Computing Group at ETH Zurich. In this project we study selfish behavior in distributed systems, and in particular in peer-to-peer filesharing systems. The lack of incentives to contribute resources potentially results in a total Collapse of a peer-to-peer system, implying that it is essential for a completely decentralized system to incorporate protocols that ensure a fair sharing of resources.
