There’s a new website the crypto community has been discussing called The NFT Bay, a web portal that operates in a similar fashion to The Pirate Bay (TPB), because the platform hosts a huge selection of NFTs stemming from various blockchain platforms for free. On Thursday, the web portal’s creator revealed a file called “The Billion Dollar Torrent,” which claims to hold all the NFTs from Ethereum and Solana.
‘The Massive NFT Heist:’ Pirate Bay Clone The NFT Bay Sparks Heated Discussions
During the last year, non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles have seen massive popularity and billions of dollars have been spent on these digital items. Meanwhile, a great number of people in the crypto space think NFTs are worthless and people can simply right click the NFT image and own the artwork without paying. It’s been a heated discussion ever since NFTs were introduced. The debate became even more controversial in March when an NFT immutability debate ensued and crypto supporters highlighted how NFTs were being deleted and images were being replaced.
Months later as NFTs continue to rise in both popularity and value, an individual tweeted about an interesting web portal called The NFT Bay. “OMG who right clicked all of the #NFTs?” the individual tweeted on Thursday. The individual named Geoff also left a torrent link hosted on The NFT Bay (thenftbay.org) called “The Billion Dollar Torrent,” which hosts all the non-fungible token assets stemming from Solana and Ethereum. After the tweet got thousands of likes and retweets, Geoff said he was headed to bed but left some press statements behind.

The NFT Bay operates in a similar fashion to The Pirate Bay (TPB), because the platform hosts a huge selection of NFTs stemming from blockchain platforms. It contains a link to the torrent where users can leverage a torrenting platform to download the seeded files. The NFT Bay actually looks like a clone of TPB and has the same website color arrangements and uses TPB’s logo too. The main page has a slew of individual NFTs and filters for NFTs from collections like Bored Ape Yacht Club, Cryptopunks, and Axie Infinity.
