Torrentz2 is the successor to Torrentz.eu, which shut down in 2017. Torrentz.eu was shut down after a couple of years of success owing to intense government pressure. Regardless, the name was not going away. Its clone, successor, and adequate replacement were up and operating only a few months after it was shut down. Not only did Torrent2.eu succeed in replacing the old Torrentz.eu, but it also exceeded all of its predecessor's expectations and records. It isn't required for a secure Torrent Site to have a closed community. Every month, millions of people visit credible platforms that have been open to the public for 3-4 years or more. Their reputation is reflected in the amount of traffic and interaction they generate. Quality torrent sites grow like wildfire in the torrentsphere. Once a site achieves traction, it does not lose it, and it continues to improve over time. However, many sites have sailed from deep seas to a safe island by quickly switching to a directory rather than a content hosting site owing to legal issues.
