Your worst fears about The Pirate Bay acquisition might be coming true: Peter Sunde told Torrent Freak that they are indeed closing down TPB's tracker and decentralizing to the point listed torrents won't be hosted on the site anymore.
There's an update at the end of the post from Global Gaming Factory X CTO Johan Sellström that's as bizarrely worded and unclear as their original announcement and press release, so who knows what it really means:
"We had discussed closing it down initially so I think that's why he said so. The plan is to use technology from Peerialism that makes bandwidth utilization more efficient and then it would not make sense to shut it down. Peerialism will modify the tracker but it will be backwards compatible. But all this is subject to change if for some reason it would not work. It is our ambition to do so.
So, um, if their new thing doesn't work, then they'll shut it down? Ooookay.
The idea, Sunde said, is that The Pirate Bay will live on whatever happens—but would shutting down the tracker and scattering to the wind be really living? I think not. I also think it's gonna take a few days to figure out what the hell is really happening.
Possibly unrelated, but The Pirate Bay is down at the moment. [Torrent Freak]
