Kim Dotcom, also known as Kim Schmitz, is an internet entrepreneur and most notably the founder of who has a net worth of $150 million.

Born in Kiel, German in 1974, Kim Dotcom/Kim Schmitz has had a fascinating roller coaster career as a multi-millionaire internet CEO. Kim has experienced some extreme highs and some extreme lows including a conviction for tax evasion.

He is currently facing a potential 55 year prison sentence for operating Megaupload has allegedly cost the entertainment industry over $500 million in damages from pirated content being uploaded and shared through the site. If convicted, not only could he spend decades behind bars, but he may also be forced to hand over $175 million in ill-gotten profits.

On 4 November 2020, the Supreme Court of New Zealand ruled that Dotcom could be extradited to the United States to face 12 criminal copyright-related charges. But, the Supreme Court also ruled that he and three other co-defendants could challenge the decision through a judicial review.

Also, the Supreme Court ruled that the High Court and Court of Appeal had been wrong not to consider their application for a judicial review of the original district court decision in 2015 that had first ruled in favour of extradition.

Dotcom’s lawyer Ron Mansfield described the judgment as a “mixed bag”, stating that the Supreme Court had accepted there were “serious procedural issues” while warning that the Court’s rejection of Megaupload’s “safe harbour” defence would have “an immediate and chilling impact” on the Internet.

Kim Dotcom Broke?

In November 2014, Kim announced that he was “officially broke”. He claims he lost the majority of his wealth when his assets were seized in July 2014. He has also spent a small fraction of his wealth defending himself over the last year and has transferred remaining assets out of his name to protect them from prosecution.

His lawyer Ira Rothken recently confirmed that “Kim Dotcom is broke because the largest copyright case in US history has cost about $500 million to date to defend and will cost tens of millions of dollars more going forward.”

Before his arrest, Dotcom/Schmitz lived a wealthy lifestyle. He owned a fleet of expensive high performance cars, yachts, private jets and one of the most expensive houses in New Zealand that cost a reported $25 million.

He traveled the world with Playboy bunnies and drove around in a Lamborghini that had the license plate “GOD”. When he was arrested on January 19th, 2012, authorities seized $5 million worth of luxury cars, including a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe with a price tag of $400,000.

Schmitz is reportedly 6 foot 7 and weighs over 330 pounds.
