“Quick update on the new Mega: Code 90% done. Servers on the way. Lawyers, Partners & Investors ready. Be patient. It’s coming.”
This tweet coming from Kim Dotcom, founder of Megaupload, took the fans of his once famous site by surprise.
Dotcom was arrested overseas on request by American authorities who want to sue him for copyright fraud. As soon as he was caught, his site was immediately shut down thus, ending the reign of one of the most popular file sharing sites on the Web.
Or so we thought.
Dotcom has been teasing us with the return of Megaupload. And that tweet above surely has caused ruckus not only for fans of Megaupload but also for authorities who want to shut him down once again.
According to Dotcom in an interview with TorrentFreak a year ago, “Megabox.com, a site that will soon allow artists to sell their creations direct to consumers and allowing artists to keep 90% of earnings.”
The famous founder has been very active in micro-blogging site Twitter recently. He has been teasing us with clues as to when his site will be back.
Kim Dotcom is not only popular due to Megaupload but also his lavish lifestyle. The partying founder has posed for photographs together with scantily clad ladies and has paid for expensive fireworks display.
