    I'm sure there's a way to do it. Hmm...But some methods kind of defeat the purpose of torrents though.

    Making money and torrents sounds like a contradiction. I don't think anyone makes money from uploading torrents. Many users in private torrent trackers like to upload as it adds to their ratio. Other than that there's no commercial incentive to upload. Most people upload for personal satisfaction though

    Use bee4biz CPA network to monetize your torrents. You just password protect the torrent, upload it and lock the password with bee4biz

    In other words, they don't earn any money.

    Most uploader's don't make money, they do it for personal values (sharing) and earning respect. 

    You can make money in a variety of ways, you may develop your own private BitTorrent website with it's own private trackers, which give users the illusion of privacy & security. You could do this buy requiring an "invite", charging $x.xx for 2 invites, one for himself and one for a friend.If you can find an affiliate, you can always advertise by including a text or image file in your torrents about the affiliate. If your torrents get really popular, they will most likely pay you for your advertising.

    Another possibility through an affiliate program, if you have a decent connection speed (especially upload) you could setup a computer on your network as a seedbox. This is where the system's main duty is simply to upload the torrent data to other users. You will usually need at least a consistent 2GB/upload speed.

    You could use the CPA password method, which is generally frowned upon in the P2P community. This method involves password protecting an archieve and only giving a link to where the password is, the link itself is usually something like Sharecash or some service that pays you for the amount of people who visit your link.
