New Megaupload 2.0 Will Be Based On Bitcoin Technology
I am pretty sure that most of you've heard about Megaupload, and even use it when it was active.For those who don't know about it, Megaupload was a free file hosting website where you could upload and share your files, same as Dropbox and many other file hosting services that are today.
Megaupload was launched in 2005, and in 2011 its servers and all files got seized by US due to some copyright problems. After that Kim dotcom the owner launched a new service called Mega, again a file hosting website.
Now probably you'd ask what's the interesting part here...The interesting part is that Kim Dotcom , announced that the new Megaupload 2.0 is coming back in january 2017 and it will be based on bitcoin technology.
Kim Dotcom'scomment :
Every Megaupload 2.0 file transfer will be linked to a Bitcoin micro-transaction. The payments are microscopic but the mass of transfers and users will create a giant pool of wealth that can be distributed to publishers, content owners and uploader.
