James Howells, 32, made headlines in 2013 after it emerged he had accidentally thrown away a computer hard drive containing 7,500 bitcoins, worth around $4 million at the time. The hard drive now sits buried beneath trash in a landfill site near his home in Newport, Wales.
Following bitcoin’s recent price surge, the contents of the IT specialist’s missing hard drive are now worth $108 million at the time of writing, if other cryptocurrencies on the hard drive are also taken into account.
“I’m always aware of the bitcoin price,” Howells told Newsweek. “I always knew this [the price rising] was going to happen…. In my opinion, bitcoin hasn’t had its Facebook moment yet. Imagine the price when it does. That would make my hard drive worth $1 billion or more.”
More than four years of trash have since been dumped on top of the hard drive, meaning any salvage operation would be both costly and time-consuming. Despite making several requests to the local council, Howells has yet to be granted permission to look for the missing treasure.
