Kim Dotcom Says Mega Is Already Catching Up To Dropbox
[ Technology]

Mega launched over the weekend to much fanfare. The new file sharing site from Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom already reached over 1 million users within a day, and it’s still growing. For now, Dotcom is taking a break from the public eye, but he’s still tweeting away all kinds of stats about his new startup.

In a series of tweets from about 10 hours ago, Dotcom announces some early stats for Mega. The biggest surprise is definitely how fast Mega has grown since its launch. We know that the site has over 1 million registered users, but it’s obviously higher than that now. Dotcom isn’t sharing the exact number, however, because he says he can’t believe it.

Although we can’t see how many registered users the site has, we can see that it’s growing astronomically thanks to a tweet from Dotcom that compares Mega’s traffic to established file sharing service Dropbox.

He also tweeted out that Mega is now the largest .co.nz site on the Internet. I’m betting the folks in Gabon were now wishing they let Dotcom keep his original me.ga domain name.

Of course, the launch has not been without some issues. The ever increasing demand for Mega is causing the site to load slowly for some while others are having issues with uploading. Dotcom is aware of the issues and is promising to get everything under control:

Another issue Dotcom now faces are reports that Mega’s much hyped security and encryption are not as protective as he claims. He says that he he will be addressing those issues soon:

Mega has already proven to be a success, but how long will it last? TorrentFreak reported yesterday that anti-piracy group StopFileLockers is already attempting to shut off Mega’s revenue streams. Similar groups are probably exploring their options in regards to Mega as well. Dotcom claims his new site is legal, but the media industry will no doubt find something to complain about.

    Of course big business is going to try to shut down MEGA!! All they have is laws cause they can’t innovate enough. The globe is moving towards fascism (big corporations run the world) spearheaded by the US. You have banks like HSBC laundering money for terrorists and drug cartels and none of them go to jail. Million Iraqi ppl dead because of false “weapons of mass destruction” that never even existed but file sharing is bad and can’t be tolerated. What kind of friggin messed up world are we living in? Why can’t the majority of ppl see this crap for what it is. Amazing!
