A “SEED” is a person who is supplying a file that is being shared over the internet. The more seeds the better!

A “LEECH,” also know as a “peer,” is a person who is downloading a file, but has not yet fully downloaded it. Leeches are bad. Leeches are not your friend (hence the name). When a leech finishes downloading a file, they become a seed. A Leech can upload parts of a file whilst they are downloading. Once fully downloaded then it will then be defined as a seed.
