Bitcoin investor forgot about £17 worth £551,000 four years later via @MailOnline

Bitcoin investor forgot about £17 worth £551,000 four years later via @MailOnline

OK class, quite watching the Rihanna photos and pay attention: 1. Bitcoin = New digital currency. 2. Man invests 17 GBP worth in Bitcoins, and forgets his investment, and password. 3. Man later REMEMBERS PASSWORD, looks up how much the Bitcoin has APPRECIATED, and finds that he has made a PROFIT. 17 GBP then = 551,000 GBP today. 4. Man then cashes in Bitcoins and buys himself an apartment. Tax man and authorities to follow. Got it now ? OK, you can scroll back to the Miss Bumbum 2013 article and photos in the Science and Culture section. - History2, Neuchatel, 29/10/2013 19:57 Thanks for that, have now "quited" caring
