Bram Cohen Career

Mojo Nation allowed people to break up confidential files into encrypted chunks. And distribute those pieces on computers also running the software. If someone wanted to download a copy of this encrypted file. They would have to download it simultaneously from many computers.

Cohen thought the concept was perfect for a file-sharing program since programs like KaZaA take a long time to download a large file because the file is coming from one source.

Cohen then designed BitTorrent to be able to download files from many different sources, thus speeding up the download time, especially for users with faster download than upload speeds.

The more popular a file is, the faster a user will be able to download it, since many people will be downloading it at the same time, and these people will be uploading the data to other users.
