Promising a return that is bigger and better than ever, Dotcom has said that Mega will be "powered by legality and protected by the law." "Our easy to use one-click privacy feature will turn encryption into a mass product. We believe within five years half of all Internet traffic will be encrypted with solutions born from our new API," Dotcom says.

"I believe in our rights to privacy and legal sharing. I intend to protect those rights when governments are acting in the interest of corporations rather than society and progress," he adds. What do you think? Will Mega revolutionize the way we share data on the internet? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
