Newport: IT engineer James Howells’ tireless efforts to find lost treasure worth Rs 3,300 crore

IT Engineer James Howells is searching for the treasure trove of 8000 bitcoins worth crores of rupees after 10 years. He kept this bitcoin in his hard drive. James threw the hard drive in the trash.

But now that James realized the value of his bitcoin (1 bitcoin = Rs 18,28,395), he tries to take the hard drive out of the garbage dump at any cost. If you look at the price of 8 thousand bitcoins today, then it is Rs 8000 * 18,28,395 = 32,91,11,10,000 (3291 crores).

According to the report, IT engineer James Howells has been looking for his hard drive for years. James says that if he gets these bitcoins, he will spend 10% of it to build a crypto hub in Newport (Wales).

Newport Council says the environment will be harmed if an attempt is made to tamper with the landfill. The council is not yet ready for this.

James accidentally dumped his hard disk in a landfill in 2013. James is convinced that the hard drive is there. He has often requested to dig here. Newport Council has repeatedly rejected James’ proposals. The council has cited environmental damage as the reason behind this.

Trust James, the hard drive is in the trash

James himself believes that digging a landfill is a big task. For this he has arranged funding and experts. He has also contacted an Artificial Intelligence expert. A team has also been appointed to look after environmental related works.

James claims that when so many people start working together then hard drive will be found but the apprehension is what will happen if this hard drive is not found, if it is found then James will make this place a crypto hub.
