This is only a test. We really want to get rid of all the ads. But we also need enough money to keep the site running.
Let us know what you think in the comments. Do you want ads or do you want to give away a few of your CPU cycles every time you visit the site?
Of course the mining can be blocked by a normal ad-blocker.
Initially there was a small typo so all CPU for a client was used. This should be corrected now so only 20-30% should be used.
Also it is restricted to run in one tab only so even if you have 10 tabs oven it will only be running in 1.
Happy new year!
To celebrate 2017 here are dumps in currently 2 formats for all the torrents since 2004!.
Do whatever you want with them. Create a new torrent site for all we care ;)
The files will update daily. More formats will follow.Dumps!
Report link is now public! (with abuse protection).
You guys have so far removed 520 fakes!
Fixed a bug in the searches that made some torrents not appear.
For those of you that wants to connect to TPB using TOR the old .onion address is back up and running.
Sorry for the delay in an update but we have been busy tweaking and tuning to get some stability :)
As you may have seen no data was lost because of the raid since we of course have backups running every minute :) d0h'
1. We have seen that there has been some question to why we are using Cloudflare. This is only initially to handle the massive load upon the servers. It will be removed shortly.
2. Due to severe security issues regarding the old moderator team all moderation has temporarily been disabled. Before we sort everything out we have instead added a "Report link" to all torrents which you can find in the details page.
We believe in that the TPB community can help moderate the site for the time being.
More updates will follow as soon as we think of something ;)
The Virtual Bay
So, first we ditched the trackers.
We even got rid of the torrents.
Then we left the servers to enter the clouds.
Now, we're about to take the biggest step in our history.
As piracy is about to change from sharing of files into the sharing of everything, we're planning our departure from this earthly form. Preparing our final ascension into the transcendence. The final conflux.
No, this is no longer science fiction. With the next version of this humble venture, you'll be able to see, hear and feel everything that is a part of The Pirate Bay. How you use it is up to you.
In cooperation with russian, israeli and japanese neuro scientists, we are developing a device that will embrace your entire mind. Using laser projections directly onto the retina it'll no longer be any resolution but 100%. The sound will be delivered in a range from 12Hz to 79kHz and will cancel all noise from the outside world.
Using a simple plugin into the the brain, you will no longer only be able to see and hear a movie, a game or whatever it is you want. You'll be able to live it. Play the main character. Tweak any story in any way you want.
Using your brain power and nervous system, we will be able to speed things up. Every part of The Pirate Bay will be stored within you and everyone else that dares to participate in this step into the future. The more we are, the faster everything will be. Our scientists calculate that if we become at least 1 333 337 nodes, everything will be shared instantaneously.
Forget about the outside world. This is the new.
The Virtual Bay - 12/13/14
New domain again
This time it's http://thepiratebay.gy
New domain, and soon we'll switch again!
We are now at http://thepiratebay.ac but that won't last for long, we'll soon be on our way to the next.
PirateBrowser - No more censorship!
Do you know any people who can't access TPB or other torrents-sites because they are blocked? Recommend PirateBrowser to them. It's a simple one-click browser that circumvents censorship and blockades and makes the site instantly available and accessible. No bundled ad-ware, toolbars or other crap, just a Pre-configured Firefox browser.
A nice present to TPB and our users on this day, our 10yr birthday!
