BitTorrent是一种点对点的文件分享技术，但是它的下载仍然严重依赖集中化的中心服务器，依赖于BT搜索引擎和索引网站如海盗湾，tracker服务器；即使是号称去中心化的DHT技术也需要一台中心服务器。然而，理想化的、完全去中心化的BT客户端已经现身。 Tribler BitTorrent客户端的最新版本，整合了“零服务 器”方法，功能包括实时视频流，高级防Spam控制，个性化内容频道等。它的搜索功能是基于P2P数据而不是中心服务器。Tribler基于标准的 BitTorrent协议，使用正常的BitTorrent tracker与其它用户交流，它能在tracker服务器下线后继续下载。Tribler项目得到了欧盟的税款资助，虽然用户数量不多，但它的P2P技 术领先于其它BT客户端。它的背后有一支22名全职的P2P研究专家团队。
