Kim Dotcom, the controversial entrepreneur leaves MEGA due to a hectic schedule in legal battles and political aspirations.
Kim Dotcom has decided to leave MEGA, the hosting service started at the beginning of the year. Despite the undeniable success of the site started after the closure of Megaupload, the CEO Vikram Kumar announced in New Zealand that Dotcom had stepped away as managing director of Mega last week.
Any reasons? There is still a battle to win against extradition to the U.S. and the political ambitions to stand in 2014 general election. “Are these two events connected?”
The new MEGA site has several million members. In short, it’s working great. However, there is also a trouble that Kim Dotcom has to solve.
According to the rumors, the key problem is of course the extradition, but there are also two projects that the entrepreneur has on the table and it will take many months. The first is an unnamed music platform that is said to be launching in the coming months.
The second project is much less mysterious. Kim Dotcom is willing to jump into politics. He is working on a program and apparently doing very seriously. Despite not being a citizen of New Zealand, his goal is to head a movement/party and leave it to others to enter the country’s political system.
“I’m excited about the party and I’m confident that I can help make New Zealand a significant Internet economy player. Someone needs to lead New Zealand into the future. Unfortunately, the current government doesn’t know what the future looks like,” according to him for the future.
Although general elections will be held in November of the next year, while the extradition could come as early as April, therefore, Kim Dotcom has chosen to leave MEGA on to other things.
