The site is, which regardless of the payment methods accepted is a big no in my books. They expect the user to provide information and agree to an agreement before informing the user on the payment methods accepted.

That is a given and by design if one wants user side encryption.

he does not need to. but knowing that you loose everything if you loose your password will indeed keep some users away.

If one is using the site for backup this is a feature and not a concern. Given the history of Mega, I would be more concerned about some government shutting down the servers than me loosing the password. This kind of government action is not a concern if:
1) The cloud is used for backup only
2) The data is encrypted and only the user has the key.

Where did this idea of Mega taking BTC come from anyway? I see a lot of talk about the idea with nothing tangible to back the idea at all. The amount of speculation over the subject just shows what an echo cahmber this forum is, IMO.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

People sent twitter messages to Kimdotcom about accepting BTC to solve his payment processor problems. He retweeted them in acknowledgement. That's what it's based on.

They can add BTC payment functionality afterwards.  Hope is still there.

The API looks pretty open.  If someone codes some kind of front-end for it, I wouldn't be surprised if they did accept BTC.  I'd make a wild guess Kim Dotcom will be consulting legal counsel before doing pretty much anything, at this point, though.

If he has thought about the issue enough to have concerns, they're probably that taking BTC would open him to some kind of trumped-up prosecution for money laundering, and he'd want to make sure he was legally protected from that before moving ahead.

Mega relies on resellers to process retail payments. All it takes is for someone to set up a Mega reseller that takes BTC for payment.

Whats funny is most of these resellers appear to be shadow companies that almost solely set up to move money from them to mega. If he thinks the card companies wont catch onto this shell game of his he is fucking kidding himself.

edit: actually just checked that link, it appears that they want actual legitimate companies to offer become resellers. The fact is that no real business would risk doing any existing revenue source when faced with being shut down and having their revenue stream compromised

While I can respect Kim for standing up to the U.S government I don't understand how he has managed to over hype bandwith limited cloud storage, that said at least he's being more honest than my internet provider.
