Mega founder Kim Dotcom is offering a bounty of roughly $13,580 to the first person who can break its security system, The Next Web reports.That’s because shortly after Mega launched, people raised concerns about Mega’s security system, citing issues with its end-to-end encryption of users’ files. 

Mega launched less than two weeks ago, and is already storing nearly 50 million files on the site. It also passed 1 million registered users after its first day online. 

As of today, no one has yet to break the site’s open source encryption, Dotcom tweeted.
