Kim Dotcom yesterday revealed that his cloud storage service Mega has surpassed 3 million users and 125 million files after one month of availability. The service launched on January 19 at a press event in New Zealand.
Kim said last week that Mega was closing in on 100 million files. That means the service has seen 25 million files uploaded in the last five days, at a rate of more than 5 million daily.
Mega hit 1 million users after just one day of availability; growth has since slowed of course, but adding another 2 million in less than a month can not be ignored. The majority of the traffic comes from;
- Top five countries for week 1: Spain, Brazil, France, Netherlands, and New Zealand.
- Top five countries for week 2: Spain, France, Belgium, Brazil, and New Zealand.
- Top five countries for week 3: Spain, France, Brazil, Mexico, and Switzerland.
- Top five countries for week 4: France, Spain, Brazil, Germany, and USA
Kim also emphasized that mobile apps and a sync client were “coming soon.” Three days ago, he announced Bitcoin support and slipped in that Mega would be expanding from secure cloud storage to “secure email, chat & voice, video and ‘mobile’.”
That was all he said: “mobile” (yes, in quotes). At the time, we speculated that a mobile site and mobile apps were both possible as Mega currently doesn’t have either.
Today’s mention of apps further suggests that Mega will be arriving on platforms like Android and iOS before it expands to other services, which isn’t too much of a surprise. A “sync client” means you can probably expect that your files will be available with you wherever you go.
Mega is growing. Whether these numbers hold remains to be seen.
