£80 Million Bitcoin Hard Drive Is At The Bottom Of A Landfill!

James Howells of Newport, South Wales, stored what has now amounted to £90 million worth of bitcoins on a hard drive. Sounds like good news, right? Well, the kicker is the that the hardrive he stored those Bitcoins on is currently buried under a landfill.

In 2013, Howells threw away the old hard drive he had used to mine Bitcoins.
In an attempt to get permission to dig for his old hard drive, Howells told Wired that he has been in touch with the Newport City Council. So far, though, he’s had no luck.

Howells wrote, “Digging up a landfill is not as easy as just digging a hole in the ground.” Assuming Howells does get permission to conduct a search, it would be the first dig of its kind authorized in the U.K.

The Million Dollar Homepage

The Million Dollar Homepage is a website conceived in 2005 by Alex Tew, a student from Wiltshire, England, to raise money for his university education.

The home page consists of a million pixels arranged in a pixel grid; the image-based links on it were sold for US$1 per pixel in blocks. The purchasers of these pixel blocks provided tiny images to be displayed on them, a URL to which the images were linked, and a slogan to be displayed when hovering a cursor over the link.

The aim of the website was to sell all of the pixels in the image, thus generating a million dollars of income for the creator.

Launched on 26 August 2005, the website became an Internet phenomenon.  On the 1st January 2006, the final 1,000 pixels were put up for auction on eBay. The auction closed on 11 January with a winning bid of $38,100 that brought the final tally to $1,037,100 in gross income.

His website was also featured in the book “Cool Tech Gadgets, Games, Robots, and the Digital World”.

The Goldsmith’s Tale

Our whole financial system has been built around debt and everybody paying interest on their credit loans which is pure profit for the banking cartels. This short, yet very profound video entitled The Goldsmith’s Tale explains, in very simple and easy to understand terms, the fractional reserve banking system and how the banks literally conjure up new money out of thin air from your signature on a loan agreement securing your promise to repay the debt. Sound ludicrous? Watch this video and discover the truth of the matter for yourself.
