In late February, FrostWire — a popular BitTorrent client — made news in the bitcoin community for including bitcoin-related features into an experimental build of the client.
Today — the company announced they’ve released the latest version of the software (5.7.1) with all of the bitcoin goodness include, which should make bitcoin enthusiasts who run the software very happy.
The concept is simple: torrent uploaders are able to include a bitcoin address for donations, allowing the public to tip them if they enjoy the upload.
As an example, the feature could be useful for artists looking to get their records out to the masses, giving downloaders the opportunity to throw them a small amount of bitcoin (also litecoin and even dogecoin) in support of their work.
The system could also work wonders for, say, freely-available software like Ubuntu project — allowing for the funding of distribution via torrent.
