There are sometimes days when it would be better not to clean!

This is the case of this British computer scientist who inadvertently threw the hard drive containing his bitcoin wallet.

And this wallet would not contain less today, hold well, that 88 million dollars!

James Howells, his name, was among the first to believe in revolutionary cryptocurrency. He was already interested in its debut in 2009.

He then began to undermine the Bitcoin with his computer equipment, up to 7500 pieces. This operation, he could not also achieve today, given the enormous energy that should be used for this.

Subsequently, his girlfriend asked him to stop his mining activity because of the noise it caused.

As a result, Howells sells some of his equipment and then, three years later, inadvertently discards his hard drive.

The treasure hunt

 

In fact, this big cleaning in his computer equipment, he already begins to regret it at the end of 2013. So the Bitcoin is worth a good small sum that would have already made millionaire!

But today, it's a real fortune that would have amassed James Howells if he had kept his 7,500 Bitcoins!

So Howells took a big, crazy decision: look for his famous hard drive in the garbage dump!

Although this treasure hunt is already not very easy, is added to it toxic gases that escapes from the landfill and that may make the adventure dangerous.

And even if Howells found his famous disc, there is no guarantee that the disc will still work.

But the height of bad luck would be for him to find his treasure but that it, because of the vagaries of the speculative market, is worthless!

But this option is perhaps even more improbable than finding the lost record...
