Kim Dotcom Launches Political Party, Proposes National Cryptocurrency

By Nermin Hajdarbegovic,

Tech entrepreneur and web bad boy Kim Dotcom is back in the news, having announced the launch of the Internet Party.

This is not a joke: Dotcom wants to launch a legitimate political party in New Zealand and one of his stated goals involves the creation of a new cryptocurrency in the island nation.

Kim Dotcom does have rather a chequered past that could get in the way of his political leanings, however.

His rise to fame started in the ’90s, when he was convicted for computer fraud and espionage in his native Germany. His hacking days are now long over, however, and he is best known for starting file-sharing site Megaupload, which was later rebranded and re-launched as Mega.
