Imagine a file-sharing protocol that has lasted more than 20 years. It can be used to download all kinds of files, is resistant to network failures and can auto-resume. It doesn't put a lot of load on a single server and is dependent on how many people are downloading the file simultaneously. The speed of the download increases as more people are trying to download the same file. This is BitTorrent a decentralized file-sharing protocol created in 2001.
