In a video-call interview with Max Keiser on RT’s Keiser report, Internet mogul Kim Dotcom had some overall positive things to say about bitcoin.
When asked what he thought of cryptocurrencies, Kim Dotcom said that “it’s a very exciting development” and that “it might lead to a world currency, something that unifies the global transaction system.”
Dotcom continues: “It’s still in its early stages — in its infancy — and I think over the next decade it’s going to grow to become one of the most important ways to pay for things and transfer assets.”
On the topic of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and their relations to Dotcom’s internet ventures (like Mega, an encrypted file-sharing system), Kim says he’s got some interesting things in the works, and reminds us that Mega began accepting bitcoin for premium accounts since day one.
Kim Dotcom most recently made headlines when his mansion in New Zealand was raided in 2012 while running the MegaUpload file-sharing service — now defunct.
The conversation on cryptocurrencies begins at 20:15.
