Earlier it was open. But there were many hit and runs which means people who downloaded a few torrents but never uploaded anything. This is a loss to the torrenting community since this P2P (peer to peer) sharing.

So now it's mandatory to have a ratio like 1.0 (or atleast 0.4 or 0.5).

That's why they implemented invites. We are supposed to ensure we invite someone whom we can trust.
