Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom launches Mega, new ‘most secured’ file storage project
London: Founder of the file-storage website Megaupload outlawed by the US Kim Dotcom, has launched his new project, Mega.
It comes exactly one year after the US authorities shut down Megaupload & Dotcom’s New Zealand mansion was raided.
A report says over 250,000 users have registered with Mega in the first two hours after the service’s launch pushing the servers to their limit with the influx of traffic.
New Mega offers its users 50GB of storage for free & paid service plans with limits up to 4TB & more bandwidth.
What makes Mega different is that unlike Megaupload or any other popular cloud storage systems, the new solution encrypts users’ files with a key that Mega will never have access to. This moreover means that the law enforcements won’t be able to access personal files stored in the cloud in case they decide to raid Dotcom’s endeavor once again.
Dotcom initially announced plans to launch a new project back in October 2012.
Back then he promised that Mega will be different from his previous file-storage website MegaUpload that at the zenith of its popularity attracted 50 million users a day, yet was eventually closed by US authorities.
The launch of Mega on January 20th comes exactly one year to the day after Dotcom, born Kim Schmitz, was arrested when his New Zealand estate was raided by local authorities working in cooperation with the US government.
On the same day the FBI shut down his highly successful MegaUpload project.
