How does Torrent Works:
Before we start downloading the file first needs to be uploaded on the torrenting network.
It happens by uploading a file then it is converted into small pieces and you get a final Torrent file or a magnetic link which you can input in your Torrent client to start downloading the file but before that someone needs to seed that torrent.
What seeding means here is someone uploading that file which is then downloaded by someone else.
In the torrent world, most common words are Seeders and Leechers.
Seeders upload the part which they have downloaded and leechers download the part which they need from the other seeders.
