Going by the “third time’s the charm” mantra, Kim Dotcom seems to be getting ready to unveil a new file sharing service. The well-known internet millionaire previously launched Megaupload and Mega.
Kim Dotcom is currently living in New Zealand, fighting extradition and still facing legal troubles from piracy and copyright infringement cases brought against his previous companies. But the notorious internet mogul seems ready to unveil a new file-sharing service, his “best creation yet”. Recently, Doctom was warning users off of Mega, his second file-sharing service that he eventually left years ago.
Talking to TorrentFreak, Dotcom mentioned that the new site would heavily feature encryption, offer users 100 GB of free storage, and come without transfer limits. In a tweet mentioning the new service, Dotcom hints that it might go live in January 2017, on the anniversary of the Megaupload FBI raids.
So what will the new service be called? No word on that just yet, though Dotcom tweeted that “Megaupload is coming back”. He also mentioned that the name of the new service would “make people happy”.
