Now after a long wait the original staffers of the site has launched Katcr.co/new which is familiar in terms of design and look. Alongside the makers of the site has boarded major uploaders.
The KATcr team said on the site’s launch: “We have all our major uploaders on board, and they continued to share tirelessly even before the torrent engines returned. The torrent community can continue to expect to see uploads from all the names they know and trust.”
Team behind katcr.co/new made some changes and rebuilt the original while removing unsafe elements. They promised that all pirates are safe and secure at its new portal. “In order to keep our members safe we chose to rebuild and keep only safe elements. Despite the fact that a rebuild took longer, the safety of our community comes first.”
The KATcr crew members also believe that the original operators of the KickassTorrents website will walk free – reported by TorrentFreak.The new domain has been bought from NAMECHEAP and has Whois Privacy guard.
