The United States Government has seized the world’s biggest KickassTorrents. The owner and operator of KickassTorrents (KAT) was arrested in Poland on July 21. Although, there is plenty of other torrent sites that are still working flawlessly.
Here is the list of torrent sites that can be used as an alternate of Kickass. However, these sites are not as good as KickassTorrents, but are being updated regularly.
Torrentz.eu is a Finland-based meta-search engine for BitTorrent that is run by an individual known as Flippy. It indexes torrents from various major torrent websites. Torrentz is one of the most famous torrent sites after Kickass.
The Pirate Bay
Thepiratebay.org was founded in 2013. The site provides easy peer-to-peer file sharing among users of the BitTorrent protocol. It was the most popular torrent site before Kickass.
YourBittorrent was initially founded as MyBittorrent in 2003. The website split in 2009 resulting in the formation of YourBittorrent. It does not host files, but hosts information about the location of these files in an indexed torrent file.
TorrentReactor is one of the oldest and most reliable torrent sites. Users can download any kind of media files including anime, software, games, movies, music, other series and TV shows. The readers are advised to be careful while using TorrentReactor as it is full of advertisements. Clicking anywhere on the site page will open an advertisement in the background of the web browser.
NyaaTorrents is one of the largest public anime-dedicated torrent indexes. The site is mainly focused on Chinese, Japanese and Korean media.
Meanwhile, people behind KickassTorrents are working to regain complete functionality. There are more than half a dozen Kickass proxy and mirror sites that are still working.
