Un luckiest Man in the World.

Recommended Posts

The unluckiest man in the world is an IT guy for British newspaper The Guardian.

 

Years ago James Howells bought a bunch of bitcoins, and now those bitcoins are lost for eternity because they're buried in a landfill.

 

The Guardian's Alex Hern reports:

 

"You know when you put something in the bin, and in your head, say to yourself 'that's a bad idea'? I really did have that," Howells, who works in IT, told the Guardian. "I don't have an exact date, the only time period I can give – and I've been racking my own brains – is between 20 June and 10 August. Probably mid-July". At the time he obliviously threw them away, the 7,500 bitcoins on the hard-drive were worth around £500,000. Since then, the cryptocurrency's value has soared, passing $1,000 on Wednesday afternoon.

 

...

 

That lost hard drive, though, contains the cryptographic "private key" that is needed to be able to access and spend the bitcoins; without it, the "money" is lost forever.

So unlucky...i also heard of a guy that bought pizza with 5000btc ..

 

 

Yea this was one of the first purchases ever made with bitcoin and back then it was basically worth NOTHING so how can you consider this guy to be unlucky? There was no guarantee that btc was going to rise the way it has and it isn't like he didn't get something out of it. All your posts are stupid PLEASE GET THE FUCK OUT
