What is .torrent file extension?

A TORRENT file contains metadata about files and folders, along with a list of network locations of trackers - computers with a BitTorrent client that help participants in the system find each other. A torrent file does not contain actual content, it only contains information about those files, such as their names, sizes, folder structure, and cryptographic hash values for verifying file integrity, and acts as a guide for downloading pieces of a file from other clients by enabling peer-to-peer sharing through network redistribution points. Computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms. Depending on context, a torrent may be the torrent file or the referenced content. A TORRENT can be used to transfer any file type.
