Predominantly, an early stage startup is bound to confront many challenges like funding, product decisions, the direction of the company and much more. In case of Eindhoven-based file-sharing platform Skotty, it’s altogether a peculiar and unexpected one.
A few days back, the Dutch tech hotshot WeTransfer had summoned RTL Nieuws to take an article offline. In the piece, a journalist who goes by a name Daniël Verlaan wrote about Skotty, “a Dutch alternative file sharing service as a safe, privacy-friendly, WeTransfer-like service.” Having said that, a few hours later, Verlaan received apologies about the state of affairs by phone. Consequently, some Twitter users claimed to use Skotty.io after observing the series of events.
