It doesn't need trackers anymore or? You just create the torrent and
host it (from slow home) and then the swarm will distribute.

Yes, DHT (distributed hash table) makes trackerless torrents easy to do. Trackers are preferred mainly for visibility reasons (read: getting the image out to people who wouldn't otherwise be looking for it). They do have the nice advantage of ensuring that every possible peer and seed is connected to each other.
