“盗版之王”Kim Dotcom宣布推出比特币内容支付平台

备受争议的新西兰互联网大亨吉姆·多特康姆(Kim Dotcom)计划推出一项比特币支付系统,供用户售卖文件与视频。美国认为多特康姆违反了版权法,要求将他引渡到美国,多特康姆正在抗争。

企业家多特康姆出生于德国,本周他在上传至YouTube的视频中宣布将成立一家名为“Bitcontent”的新公司。多特康姆曾创办流媒体网站Megaupload,Megaupload已经停业。美国执法部门认为该网站侵权,而且存在洗钱嫌疑,正在对多特康姆进行通缉。

在视频中,多特康姆称,当你在互联网上发布任何内容,都可以为内容创建支付通道……你可以跟客户及利益相关者分享该内容,将它做成生意,进行售卖。他还补充道,最终Bitcontent将会允许新闻机构等行业通过自己的整个网站赚钱,但并未说明新企业上线日期。

Bitcontent与现有比特币运营有何不同?除了现有付费订阅支付模式之外,Bitcontent如何帮助新闻机构赚钱?多特康姆均未透露相关细节。

比特币是一种虚拟货币,可使金钱更快地在全球流动;且相对而言具有一定的匿名性,能绕开银行、政府等中心机构。

因为比特币是匿名的,所以被毒品走私犯、洗钱犯、犯罪组织广泛采用。2009年比特币开始出现时,政府、金融机构对其接受度均较为迟缓。2017年,比特币的价值创下新高,本周三(4月5日)交易价达到1145美元,一年之内翻了5倍,且全球对这一货币的兴趣越来越大。

今年2月新西兰法院裁决将多特康姆引渡到美国接受有关Megaupload网站的审判,2012年FBI突袭了多特康姆位于奥克兰的住所,Megaupload网站被迫关闭。多特康姆正就这一裁决进行上诉。

多特康姆是新西兰公民,他的生活极为奢侈,计算机技术高超。

他曾在网上发布了一些照片,比如挂有“GOD”“GUILTY”自选车牌的汽车,拿着突击步枪射击,坐着私人飞机飞往全世界。

Controversial New Zealand-based internet mogul Kim Dotcom plans to launch a Bitcoin payments system for users to sell files and video streaming as he fights extradition to the United States for criminal copyright charges.

The German-born entrepreneur, who is wanted by U.S. law enforcement on copyright and money laundering allegations related to his now-defunct streaming site Megaupload, announced his new venture called ‘Bitcontent’ in a video posted on Youtube this week.

“You can create a payment for any content that you put on the internet…you can share that with your customers, with the interest community and, boom, you are basically in business and can sell your content,” Dotcom said in the video.

He added that Bitcontent would eventually allow businesses, such as news organizations, to earn money from their entire websites. He did not provide a launch date.

Dotcom did not provide details on how Bitcontent would differ from existing Bitcoin operations or how it would help news organizations make money beyond existing subscription payment options.

Bitcoin is a virtual currency that can be used to move money around the world quickly and with relative anonymity, without the need for a central authority, such as a bank or government.

The currency’s anonymity has however made it popular with drug dealers, money launderers and organized crime groups, meaning governments and the financial establishment have been slow to embrace it since the first trade in 2009. The currency’s value hit record levels in 2017, trading at $1,145 on Wednesday, a fivefold increase in a year, amid growing interest globally.

A New Zealand court ruled in February that Dotcom could be extradited to the United States to face charges relating to his Megaupload website, which was shutdown in 2012 following an FBI-ordered raid on his Auckland mansion, a decision he was appealing.

Dotcom, who has New Zealand residency, became well known for his lavish lifestyle as much as his computer skills.

He used to post photographs of himself with cars having vanity plates such as “GOD” and “GUILTY”, shooting an assault rifle and flying around the world in his private jet.
