Digging landfills – Man on a Mission!
Much talked about James Howells, an IT worker, has confidently offered his local council £55million in return for being granted permission to dig up a 200- meter area of a rubbish dump. He estimates that there are between 300,000 and 400,000 tonnes of waste to look through and believes the precious hard drive containing the lost Bitcoin could be up to 15 meters deep.
Not giving up his quest to retrieve his coins, the 35-year-old from the city of Newport in the U.K. has shared with The Sun publication his 12-month plan to search the city landfill using x-ray scanning devices and AI technology.
The British Man affirmed:
“We have a system with multiple conveyor-belts, x-ray scanning devices and an AI scanning device that would be trained to recognize items that are a similar size and density to the hard drive.“James Howells
James added, that over the past four or five months, he had been “talking to some of the best data recovery experts in the world to make sure we can get it off the hard drive”. But this would be a delicate search because we wouldn’t want to damage the hard drive in the process – “you can’t just use a claw grabber,” he emphasised. He has spoken to excavation experts and proper engineers to make sure it was all being done correctly as well as in a way that was safe for the environment.
The search will be costly but Howell said that his plan is backed by a very rich hedge fund. He is willing to cover the cost of search and the equipments involved digging landfills to find his lost Bitcoin in exchange for his share of fortune.
