There will be a press conference on Saturday 19th of January in his New Zealand mansion to celebrate the launch of Kim's new endeavour: http://mega.co.nz

The public launch is also scheduled for Saturday, while press representatives will have the opportunity to glimpse at the new site 48 hours early.
See: http://mega.co.nz/press/

How do we get some of the attendees or early testers to ask for the available payment options, especially for Bitcoin??

Is there a list of or intelligence on the attendees available somewhere?
In that case, a bunch of emails would probably do the job in placing our most wanted question among those raised at the conference.

I've planned this very moment from 2 months ago, I'm quite sure that the new Mega will support Bitcoin and that will launch Bitcoin into the hands of hundreds of millions of users a day.
It will be an epic moment.

If i'm right.

Mega will support Bitcoin

Every day Dotcom paints another circle onto the target on his back. He's got cojones, that's for sure.

I've said it before, but I'm super skeptical that mega-whatever will accept BTC.  AFAIK, there has been zero evidence that it will and with as many info hounds as are on this forum I imagine something would have come up.

Of course, I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong on this.  

As for how we get those at the conference to ask questions about bitcoin, I assume we don't. Either they already will or they have other questions that they think will be more important. The chances are that people who are going will already be asking these sorts of questions as they are the most obvious to ask. Plus, I don't believe anyone would get a few emails asking about bitcoins from strangers on the Internet and think to themselves, "Oh boy, I better change my questions and ask this one!"

Yes, apart from my previsions. I would do that if i was in him.

Time will tell, we are only days apart.

I see Bitcoin as the best choice but Mr. Dotcom has other options.  He can continue to use standard credit cards as this is a new company and wait until he is shut down (this risk is lowered by his not having encryption keys to the customer data). He can set up his own payment network or currency.  Both of those choices have more problems then simply using Bitcoin.

I'm expecting the new system to have absolutely nothing to do with Bitcoin.

Seems to me Kim just doesn't get it.
If he did comprehend Bitcoin - he'd have been too excited about the potential to not drop hints.

Also - in his recruitment of server operators, it would make sense to target people who already value Bitcoin if that were the intended payment mechanism.

I'm just skeptical that he could convince a bunch of high-capacity server operators to accept a 'new form of money'.  
If so - he's a better evangelist than I give him credit for and a master of secrecy.

I strongly suspect that he's just decentralized (or 'indirected' anyway) the monetization aspect of the system using boring old-skool money... and so advertisers & users will be paying various server operators rather than paying Dotcom directly.

Kim-Koin is a much more likely scenario. If you know any tiny bit of this guy's history you will know what I am saying.

a more likely scenario is that accepting Bitcoin won't come to his attention until it becomes as common knowledge to accept like how Paypal is today.

Some points why he would accept Bitcoin:

# Its cost efficient
# He hates VISA, Master Card and Paypal for freezing his assets for a looong time
# He detests the US government, as he cheerfully likes to perpetuate on his tweet
# He likes to think of himself as an internet liberties activist
# He retweeted Bitcoin# already
# Bitcoin suits his business and customers with anonymity written all over it
# "Hackers" offered him back his domain of choice: "http://me.ga" for a million dollar ransom payable in Bitcoin (coincidence? staged?)
# He was tried once for insider trading*, for buying large into a small company incognito, then launching news of his engagement and investment plans of it, only to sell his shares at the peak IIRC. Thus, he must have thought of doing the same thing with Bitcoin, this time legally.

*"In 2001, Schmitz purchased €375,000 worth of shares of the nearly bankrupt company LetsBuyIt.com and subsequently announced his intention to invest €50 million in the company.[31] The announcement caused the share value of LetsBuyIt.com to jump[32] and Schmitz cashed out, making a profit of €1.5 million. One commentator suggested that Schmitz may have been ignorant of the legal ramifications of what he had done since insider trading was not made a crime in Germany until 1995,[30] and until 2002 prosecutors also had to prove the accused had criminal intent.[33]"

Lots of good reasons Senor Kim should use BTC

It's very clear that he should use BTC, but I question this guys ability to use common sense or make intelligent decisions to any degree.

Kim-Koin is a much more likely scenario. If you know any tiny bit of this guy's history you will know what I am saying.

Because the costs of Bitcoin are so low, setting up Kim-Koin would cost him more with little benefit.  There are already places to get Bitcoin all over the world.  Is he going to set up a Kim-Koin acceptance network in the USA?  Doubtful. 

He could try to stay within the standard Visa/Mastercard network as I have said before.  He does not need to find a US partner, he can use an overseas one.  They may be told by Visa/Mastercard later to turn him off, but that would take time. 

Actually the best choice for HIM would be to accept as many things as possible including Bitcoin.

Maybe he is quite smart and still buying.
