This was a lucky day for a reddit userĀ ukpfchuckafar. He found his old harddisk with a bitcoin wallet.dat file. When he started to synchronize the blockchain he found out that now he has plenty of bitcoins!

Lost disk with a bitcoin wallet

He was mining bitcoin on his home computer in 2009 when it was possible to mine BTC using just a home PC with a standard CPU. GPU mining started later in 2010. Now this lucky bitcoin miner can easily retire.

Today in 2017 it is no more possible to effectively mine bitcoins at home. You need to have a garage full of modern and expensive hardware in order to do it. But there is another way – you can easily mine bitcoins in the cloud.

Cloud bitcoing mining is available for everyone.
