Somewhere in a gigantic landfill in Wales
BArrived in 2009, James Howell threw a disc containing 8000 Bitcoins in a garbage bag.
Since then, $181 million has been hiding somewhere in a huge landfill in Newport, South Wales. It was worth over half a billion at the peak of the bull market.
The unfortunate “Honey, can you put the trash outside, please?” de Howell became one of Bitcoin’s biggest individual losses in history.
He never gave up dreaming of finding the disc.
And now he has a master plan, two investors and the latest technology. The last hurdle to overcome is the stubbornness of the local authorities.
