I would say that's not the best way to download the blockchain... The best way is to get a full node, and download the Bitcoin Core client and sync from that.

torrent they are used to spread of  kind network information blockchain communicate into network nodes via peer to peer storing information in the data i don't think it safe blockchain and torrent to combine to each other because have different function.
Yes you are right at your own side but I want to say this that there is many ways to which anyone can download Blockchain but here the option which has been mentioned is torrent and I know why because torrents is advance and safe way to download anything on the internet and also the most popular option is.

When you are using a torrent you have to verify the download afterwards. When you are using the client directly you can verify while you download, thats why the pure download speed is not as important.
