Add one of the greatest music torrent sites in existence to the list of sites taking Bitcoin donations, definitely did what oink was doing and better, also making waffles.fm look like childs play (even though I love waffles as well).

what.cd is difficult to get into by average means, but if you can pass the test you get 1 free invite. fail 3 times and you get banned.

but in terms of all private trackers, they are easy to get into.

You think every known file sharing site would be on top of such things by now.  I know others that are on it, but What.CD is one of the few torrent sites I know of that has, at least what appears to be, an actual user base that enjoys to share as much as give.

I prefer waffles.fm, personally. There has yet to be an album that I wanted that I could not find there

Waffles will always be the number one second place spot in my heart.  They don't have the layout and features that What.cd does, but they do make up for it by having audio that cannot be found elsewhere.

Organization and layout more so than a specific "feature" I guess is more what I am saying.  When I'm using waffles, it feels like I'm just using OiNK all over again.  When I log into an artist's page on What, as you can see from the screenshot in the example in the first post, you get a little more.

that's true, waffles is not organized in such a matter.

either way i'm glad i'm in the circle of trust. nearly impossible to get into unless you know someone.

Posted on /r/Bitcoin yesterday

This is more an "FYI this is interesting" than a call to action because very few of you will be able to access their website; they're a private MP3 torrent tracker that sprang up to replace OiNK when it was taken down.

Here's the really interesting part: one of the reasons OiNK was taken down so easily was that the media companies were able to prove that OiNK was receving donations to PayPal accounts in exchange for access to the site (or maybe just extra features? I don't know the exact details). Good luck proving anything with Bitcoin donations.
