Bitcoin might be trending up, down, or sideways, but there’s always one thing that doesn’t change: the number of wild bitcoin stories. Some have become legendary over the years, routinely appearing in news reports about the latest bitcoin surge or crash. Like the guy who threw millions worth of bitcoin into the trash in 2013. He never stopped trying to find it.
James Howells is the name of the computer engineer who threw away a hard drive containing 8,000 bitcoins nearly a decade ago. That hard drive is worth about £150 million ($183.1 million), assuming one could still retrieve the cryptocurrency from the drive. Howells hasn’t given up hope and wants to pull the job by combing through the trash with the help of AI and robot dogs.
