Man Threw $300m Bitcoin Hard Disk In Bin: 7 Years On, He Wants It Back
“A British man is offering to give his city $70m if they let him search a landfill site for a discarded hard drive, which he claims has almost $300m worth of bitcoin stored on it.
James Howells from Newport in south Wales claims he mistakenly threw away the hard disk with 7,500 bitcoins on it, according to a report on the BBC. With Bitcoins currently worth around $38,000 each, that missing hard disk could be worth the best part of $300m.
There’s one major problem, however. He didn’t chuck out the drive last week, but seven years ago.”
