Never knowingly undersized or understated is New Zealand tycoon Kim Dotcom, who is currently fighting extradition to the US on copyright charges.
Creator of the Megaupload file sharing site that was closed down by the US Department of Justice in 2012, his latest ventures are focused on the decentralised web.
Bitcache is a blockchain-based micro-transaction service that promises to eliminate "blockchain bloat", and Dotcom has a bitcoin-powered Megaupload 2.0 in the offing.
Not much is known about these new ventures as yet, although Dotcom has used Twitter to generate interest in the ventures.
Megaupload 2 and Bitcache. Become a part of this world changing revolution. When laws can't protect our human rights, technology will. Soon.— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) September 18, 2016
Dotcom recently told Fortune that Megaupload 2.0 will launch on 20 January 2017.
"Buy bitcoin while cheap, like right now. Trust me," he said after the theft of $72m in bitcoin from Hong Kong exchange Bitfinex, predicting that the value of the currency will shoot up next year.
So there you have it. We've seen the decentralised future and it's huge.
