Previously, this site also posted about the same torrent in back 2015, they were saying that it was outstandingly old having a single seed, thus keeping it alive.

Torrentfreak’s recent fame, and the sharing friendly policy of the eager torrent users which kept this file for a long period of time. The Matrix ASCII is having nearly 200 seeders and 100 leechers. TorrentFreak revealed that this torrent was shared in Decemeber 2003 but according to Internet Archive Cache, it says that this torrent was released on January 16 2004, therefore making it contradictory.
See the original description of the torrent
The.Matrix-ASCII is the original Matrix movie encoded in text. The finished product is an MPEG-2 file 7989979136 bytes in size, too large to fit on a DVD5. I re-encoded the ASCII movie to fit on a standard DVDR. The two samples are from the larger file and are higher quality. The DVDR is available through BitTorrent. If you wish to download the final movie or either of the samples using BitTorrent with Java installed, I suggest Azureus: otherwise TheSHADOW’s BitTorrent Client should work well. You will need a media player that can play MPEG-2 videos to watch either sample and a DVD player to watch the movie.
Currently, BitTorrent file has grown to such an extent, thus making it superb torrent sharing program. Before 12 years, it was not well known. Baring up’s and downs, presence of world’s oldest torrent is an example of BitTorrent’s success and popularity.
