    Distributed hash tables

    Taken from Wikipedia:

    Distributed hash tables (DHTs) are a class of decentralized distributed systems that partition ownership of a set of keys among participating nodes, and can efficiently route messages to the unique owner of any given key. Each node is analogous to an array slot in a hash table. DHTs are typically designed to scale to large numbers of nodes and to handle continual node arrivals and failures. This infrastructure can be used to build more complex services, such as distributed file systems, peer-to-peer file sharing systems, cooperative web caching, multicast, anycast, domain name services, and instant messaging.

    In english DHT creates a network between all the peers in the swarm. it basicly allows you to continue downloading / uploading torrents with other users without the trackers support

    Yeh, as he said.
    I was just too lazy to post it in my own words
    Be careful though, when trackers' down, your stats won't get updated if u've set DHT On (in your client, that is)
