K.im, Dotcom’s New Platform
Since the poll was conducted, Dotcom has been consistently tweeting about his new platform, K.im, which according to him will allow anyone to sell any stuff right from the platform’s file shop. He stated that:
“You can even run an eBay style auction in your file shop. No online shop, auction site, credit card processing or banking required. All inside a single file.”
Dotcom further explains that K.im platform is a result of hard work spanning three years, which he built to eliminate middlemen and banks, and bring back the power to the people. He particularly stated that it would benefit the ccrypto virgins’ who have no idea of cryptocurrencies. His tweet stated that:

Sending Crypto into the Mainstream
According to Dotcom, his segment, which represents a cool 98% of internet users is what he is looking to unleash with his platform, sending cryptocurrency mainstream. Explaining how his platform would work, he noted that:
“Imagine an online shop with integrated payment processing in a single file. Payment unlocks the contents of the encrypted file. Crypto flows directly from the customer to you. Instant payment and delivery. Create file shops on your PC or mobile. That’s http://K.im”
Ongoing Battle over Infringement of Copyright Laws
As Kim proceeds with his project, he faces an ongoing legal batter over infringement of copyrights. He is allegedly streaming from Megaupload file sharing activities, a platform that was shut down in 2012 by the US Justice Department after seven years of operation. The platform was reportedly hosting about 12 billion unique files for more than 150 million users along with a number of sister sites.
Despite these legal woes, Dotcom didn’t seem to back down. In July 2016, he gave a glimpse of his future, stating that:
“I'll be the first tech billionaire who got indicted, lost everything and created another billion $ tech company while on bail.”
