+ - MtGox finds 200,000 missing bitcoins in old wallet-> 3

Submitted by strikethree
strikethree (811449) writes "BBC — Bankrupt Japanese firm MtGox said in a filing that it has found 200,000 lost bitcoins.

The firm said it found the bitcoins — worth around $116m (£70m) — in an old digital wallet from 2011.

That brings the total number of bitcoins the firm lost down to 650,000 from 850,000.

MtGox, formerly the world's largest bitcoin exchange, filed for bankruptcy in February, after it said it lost thousands of bitcoins to hackers."

As it turns out, that's only true for massless particles like photons, gluons and gravitons; massive particles are limited even moreso, thanks to the leftover glow from the Big Bang. Full story here."

Too expensive. The meters are held in a bonded warehouse, so nobody at Sparkfun can actually get at them. Even if you can find someone bonded to do the work for you, the labour costs would be prohibitive - on the order of $150/hour/person.

Also, daily storage costs are eating up the value of the shipment - it's possible that by the time replacement cases arrived, even the storage costs make this a loser.

We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
