is there a way to run the seeding from our existing raspiblitz node? I don't have any machines with 200gb free space

Note: you may need to setup low upload/seed speed limit so the torrent seeding does not slow down your bitcoin/LN syncing too much.

For the upcomming version 1.0 release help on the seeding of the following torrents would be needed:

https://github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz/raw/master/home.admin/assets/raspiblitz-bitcoin1-2019-01-16-update.torrent

Continuing serving the base-torrent from October, currently ~300 times (>70TB) and added the update-torrent from January on the boxes where I didn't add it already 😄

Torrents are seeding, good luck for the RaspiBlitz launch!

Additional idea: could you provide an RSS feed with the new updated torrents, so that my server could automatically download/seed these as well?

Can't figure out how to make the rss-feed work in rTorrent. However, 2.5 TB of blockchain has been downloaded from my rootserver, so far.

@raumi75 do you have problems with the Raspiblitz RSS mentioned above in special or adding RSS to rtorrent in general?

It looks like we have a good seeding level - for version 1.0 release :)

Much thanks to all - will remove this ticket from Milestone 1.0 but keep it open for future improvements like the RSS.

I'm happily seeding from my rootserver with Gigabit uplink. Now my free volume is used up and it starts costing money. We need more seeders! Right now, there are only 8 seeders for the big file. When the version 1.0 image comes out, there might be higher demand.

@raumi75 so much thanks for spending your free volume - thats great :)

8 seeders I think is a base to start on, my test torrent download runs OK .. in the README I mention that is a overnight wait time and that looks kind in that area. And if there are really a lot of people at the same time downloading I think the torrent peer2peer scale effect will kick in .. people while downloading are helping also with their upload.

But to add a little more bandwidth during 1.0 release I will fund some additional seeding thu justseed.it .. thats why I put this issue back on the milestone list.

TODO: add some additional seeding thru justseed.it during 1.0 release.
