    I've been wondering this for awhile...

    If you look at the FAQ on TL it says "TorrentLeech.org is using 14 dedicated servers in the Netherlands. For the moment we have monthly running costs of approximately 6000 euros/month."

    How is this possible when sites like ScT have monthly costs of around 1000 euros?

    maybe it has something to do with the fact that TL has close to 10x the users that ScT has?

    I was estimating the amount of money they probably make. Its just a guestimate so here goes:

    This is monthly donations.

    # of users: ~70k
    % that donate: 5%, lets say. Its definitely more than that because of the number of people that have bad connections and they only ask you to pay about 8euros so I think its still a fair approximation.

    5% of 70k = 3500
    3500 * 8 = 28000 Euros!!!

    That is some crazy amount of money they're making.

    hehe running trackers is the new business venture! Making 18,000 euros a month is very tempting offer. This is why there are so many new trackers popping up all the time
