The second $40,000 monthly payment will come from a bank account Dotcom owns that was seized when he was arrested that has about $300,000 sitting in it. The courts also allowed Dotcom access to a 2011 Mercedes-Benz that he owns. It's hard to imagine needing $60,000 each month just to get by, the rent on the mansion where Dotcom was arrested is said to be about $1 million each year.
