Robotic dogs attempt to retrieve 7,500 lost bitcoins
In his recent interview with Business Insider, James Howells talked about his plans to recover lost bitcoins. In this operation, two robotic dogs made by the American company Boston Dynamics will help James Howells. These two robots will be responsible for scanning the landfill in Newport, UK. These dogs are also equipped with 24-hour CCTV cameras.
The first adopter of Bitcoin in 2009, has managed to get 11 million dollars of capital from two European investors. Howells must first obtain permission from the city council to begin his search operation and excavate the landfill. If the local authorities decide to bury this man’s bitcoin fortune under a pile of garbage, he will go to court in his last resort.
Even if Howells can find his hard drive in the trash, there’s still no guarantee that his BTC holdings will be recoverable. Recovering Howells’ lost 7,500 bitcoins will only be successful if the circular disk on which the data is stored is not damaged. If this part is severely damaged, there will be little chance of recovering the BTC assets stored on the hard drive.
Despite losing a large chunk of his capital, James Howells is undeterred. He told Business Insider that he will continue trading for a living.
