Kim Dotcom News
Kim Dotcom is a prominent German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur and advocate for digital rights. He is famous for founding Megaupload.com, a highly popular file sharing website, which was closed down by the US Department of Justice in 2014. In October 2016, Dotcom has announced the start of a crowdfunding campaign for Megaupload 2. The new version of the file sharing service will require Bitcoin micropayments of $0.05 for every download, with the ability to increase that amount to arbitrary values for content producers, which choose to share their work on Megaupload 2. The project has already managed to secure more than $1 million in crowdfunding, most of which was collected in bitcoins.
