An investor gained access to a cryptocurrency purchased in 2010 for less than 10 cents per coin.
Reddit user Shotukan said that he accidentally gained access to 533 bitcoins, now they cost about $ 5.1 million. The investor discovered his old laptop, which he gave to his brother for storage ten years ago. The device probably saved a file leading to a private wallet.

Shotukan bought BTC in 2010. At that time, the main digital coin exchange rate ranged from $ 0,0008 to $ 0.08. To date, it has risen to $ 9600. Accordingly, the user has increased his initial contribution by at least 120 thousand times.

In early June, the Bitgrin cryptocurrency network crashed. The miner received 5 billion XBG or almost $ 18 million for finding one block. Moreover, the total issue of the asset is only 21 million tokens. Thus, the miner at a time mined 24,000% more coins than they should have existed. 

UPD: Shotukan, in a comment on the publication, clarified that the laptop did not have a hard drive, and, accordingly, a cryptocurrency wallet. - About the first bitcoin billionaires will make a film - The Bitcoin exchange rate fell to 0 on a major exchange. After that, she went offline.
