A British man feels devastated after throwing away a computer hard drive which is now worth millions of dollars.
Howells’ hard drive, which contains 75-hundred of the online currency units, is now buried four feet deep in a large landfill in Wales. The I-T consultant used a computer program to create the Bit-coins for almost nothing in 2009, and stored them in a digital wallet on his laptop.
