Megaupload 2.0 to Launch With Original Megaupload User Database - TorrentFreak
But while site features are important, what the original Megaupload had going for it was millions of loyal users. They were all made homeless and scattered when the site was shut down but according to Dotcom, there will be a future grand reunion.

Intriguingly, the serial entrepreneur says that Megaupload 2.0 will get a fantastic start in life. Rather than simply relying on word-of-mouth advertising to get going, his new venture will launch with the original Megaupload user database intact.

How Dotcom managed to preserve a copy of this data isn’t clear, but he says that each user account held within will get a foot up.

“Most Megaupload accounts will be reinstated with Premium privileges on the new Megaupload,” Dotcom announced this morning.

Megaupload 2.0 Will Link File Transfers to Bitcoin Transactions - TorrentFreak
After concentrating on his usual array of political tweets, a few hours ago Dotcom stepped on the Megaupload gas, underlining its links to Bitcoin.

Every #Megaupload file transfer will be linked to a tiny #Bitcoin micro transaction. Get ready for Bitcache.

— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) August 5, 2016

The suggestion that there will be currency changing hands for people sharing files using Megaupload 2.0 is certainly an intriguing one. Dotcom previously said the site will launch with Megaupload 1.0’s user database, which could amount to 100 million users. That’s a lot of users, a lot of files, and potentially lots of money.

Kim Dotcom finally to be extradited to the US, New Zealand judge rules | Ars Technica
A New Zealand judge has ruled that Kim Dotcom is eligible to be extradited to the United States to stand trial for various copyright infringement charges. Unsurprisingly, Dotcom's legal team plans to appeal the ruling. American authorities claim that Dotcom was running Megaupload with the purpose of helping people steal copyrighted content. Dotcom has long maintained that Megaupload actually took steps to remove infringing content.

Kim Dotcom: Your Data Isn’t Safe on Mega | Motherboard
Dotcom also warned users about Mega, the encrypted cloud storage provider he launched in early 2013. Dotcom, who is no longer involved with the company, said its assets are now under the control of the New Zealand government and therefore no longer believes "your data is safe [there] anymore." He noted that he's planning to start a new company in a few months that will feature end-to-end encrypted file-sharing and that will be "completely open source and non-profit, similar to the Wikipedia model.”

US government wins dozens of millions from Kim Dotcom » TorrentFreak
"Ernesto" (TorrentFreak's founder):
A few hours ago District Court Judge Liam O’Grady ordered a default judgment in favour of the US Government. This means that the contested assets, which are worth an estimated $67m, now belong to the United States.

“It all belongs to the US government now. No trial. No due process,” Dotcom informs TF.

More than a dozen Hong Kong and New Zealand bank accounts have now been forfeited (pdf) including some of the property purchased through them. The accounts all processed money that was obtained through Megaupload’s alleged illegal activities.

The list of forfeited assets further includes several luxury cars, such as a silver Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM and a 1959 pink Cadillac, two 108″ Sharp LCD TVs and four jet skis.

The wheels of justice grind slow...

US Court Rules That Kim Dotcom Is A 'Fugitive' And Thus DOJ Can Take His Money | Techdirt
In the long, convoluted and complex legal battles facing Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, there was some bizarre stuff that happened late last year. As you may recall, early on, the US government seized basically all of his stuff and money. Dotcom has made efforts to get some of it returned, as it's tough to fight the most powerful government in the world when it's holding onto all of your money. Keep in mind from our previous discussions on asset seizure and forfeiture, the government can basically seize whatever it wants, just by claiming it was somehow related to a crime, but the seizure is only a temporary process. If the government wants to keep it, it then needs to go through a separate process known as civil asset forfeiture, which is effectively the government suing the assets. Back in July, the US government moved to forfeit everything it had seized from Dotcom in a new lawsuit with the catchy name USA v. All Assets Listed In Attachment A, And All Interest, Benefits, And Assets Traceable Thereto. As you may have guessed, Attachment A [pdf] is basically all of Kim Dotcom's money and posessions.
