Should the Bitcoin Cash blockchain be used to permanently publish/index .torrent file metadata?

I'm a BitTorrent client developer.
I'm currently working on ways to make BitTorrent Indexing websites obsolete as they continue to be points of failure in the way of content publishing and content discovery for BitTorrent users.
We are doing this without a blockchain (clever use of our current Kademlia DHT and a distributed search/indexing protocol), but it wouldn't hurt to have SOME of the content indexed forever in an indestructible, permission-less and distributed data store such as the Bitcoin Cash Blockchain.
We see the blockchain is being used for micro-blogging (Memo.cash, Blockpress.com) without much controversy, if people are willing to pay to talk, maybe a set of users might be willing to pay a few cents to publish their works on the blockchain and have the best reassurance that content won't be censored for as long as that blockchain lives.
Our BitTorrent client would now have an optional action for seeded .torrents along the "Publish Forever to Blockchain" lines. Initially the user would get an explanation of what this is about and why it needs to be paid for, a simple wallet would be integrated in the client so the user can load a balance and start publishing torrents on the network.
We'd use merkle torrents (they keep a merkle root hash instead of all the hashes to every torrent piece) if possible, if not, we'd add the .torrent's infohash and whatever user metadata can be fit into what the Memo.cash and Blockpress.com people are using to send tweets.
Every torrent client in the world could scan the blockchain and create a local (or distributed if it's too big) index, no more torrent index websites needed (for that content), it'd be up to client developers to sort out spam issues, for example algorithms such as "Trust is Risk" could be used to make sure we trust content only through the people we trust and not by what spammers may have attempted to do.

[Bitcoin Showerthought] Things used to be backwards: Media was Limited (books, music, video) and Money was Unlimited (government fiat). Now, with Internet & Blockchain, things are finally right: Media is Unlimited (torrents, youtube, netflix) and Money is Limited (bitcoin: 2.1 quadrillion satoshis)

I paid for a torrented movie, because it was easy: The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin. I was startled by the blockchain.info website updating in real-time and in synchronisation with my wallet. The utility and unprecedented freedom of Blockchain techs continue to impress me.

Could a torrent-style blockchain system work for bitcoin, to alleviate concerns about blockchain size?

As I understand it, the concern about raising the blocksize cap is that it becomes difficult to download the entire blockchain and expensive to host a full node. Hence a centralized failure point. What if instead of connecting to full nodes to view the blockchain, you connected to 1000s of users, each with a tiny portion of the blockchain. Each segment would be chosen from random users such that it would be impossible to falsify your portion of the blockchain for double-spends, etc.
Seems like for any crypto to scale, it needs to allow for a rather massive blockchain. Torrents worked for large downloads so maybe some kind of torrent-like system could work for nodes.

Should Bitcoin.org host a blockchain.torrent?

Hi all, We know that syncing the blockchain for the first time tages longer and longer.. You don't have to use the full version, but you might want to if you use bitcoins for a long time, or want a high level of control.
My proposal: Let bitcoin.org host a signed (maybe via a provided hash) version of a monthly/yearly blockchain and distribute it via bit-torrent for fast downloads (maybe through http://burnbit.com )
What do you think?

Can I share my bitcoin node blockchain database with everyone via torrent?

I just get a pruned node up and running. The process was really long and frustrated. I figure if my friend want to install a pruned node like mine, he can just copy my whole blockchain database and install bitcoin core, then point it toward that database. Could his bitcoin node be legit? what the worst that could happen? If so, why don't we share blockchain database online using torrent site so that everyone can download it faster?

Bitcoin blockchain torrent - call for trackers

Looking for good trackers which are reliable, and hopefully not linked to activity considered illegal by most nations.
The ones currently used for the bitcoin blockchain torrent are the following, which has received some criticism on the torrent thread at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=145386.msg8122691#msg8122691
- udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80 - udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80 - udp://tracker.ccc.de:80 - udp://tracker.istole.it:80 
Ideally at least one or two http trackers would be nice.

Downloading Blockchain via Torrent So I'm setting up my node and need to dl the whole blockchain. The Bitcoin Core client is taking forever, so I've found a site that hosts torrent files for the blockchain that I can then import to the Core client. Bitcoin Core is a community-driven free software project, released under the MIT license. Verify release signatures Download torrent Source code Show version history Bitcoin Core Release Signing Keys v0.8.6 - 0.9.2.1 v0.9.3 - 0.10.2 v0.11.0+ 1. Install Bitcoin-Qt Since version 0.9, Bitcoin-Qt was renamed to Bitcoin Core t o reduce confusion between Bitcoin-the-network and Bitcoin-the-software. Bitcoin Core is a full Bitcoin client. It is a thick client, meaning it requires the full blockchain (explained below) on local disk to operate and expose blockchain back to the network to help relay and verify transactions. Even computers with high Internet speed will take days or even weeks to sync the Bitcoin blockchain. This is a problem with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency wallets whose blockchain file size is huge. Litecoin, etc. You’ll find bootstrap.dat file in torrent, Bitcoin Talk forums and in several third party websites. But as we said these are DLive is a live streaming community built on blockchain that empowers content creators and viewers. Through a revolutionary rewards system, broadcasters and viewers can earn without sharing their proceeds with the platform. As DLive moves towards decentralization, the aim is to create a more open content platform.
