Shares

Shares are videos, music, photos or any files you want to share or sell to others.

Shares can be private or public and can be put behind a ligthning paywall if you wish.

Most shares are torrents hosted on private servers. Some shares are hosted within a web browser and some are hosted by lntorrent. These servers are either controlled or owned by the creator of the share or by a group of the creators friends known as a clan.
