A pseudonymous Reddit user said he found 127 Bitcoins at his grandpa’s old computer and sold them for $34,000 each. He became a millionaire overnight. The lucky man made over $4 million selling all of the digital assets, which he collected eight years ago.

In series of posts on Reddit, the pseudonymous user said that found “Bitcoins keys”  a long-time ago in an old computer at his grandpa’s house. He also stated that he got paid in Bitcoin eight years ago for answering surveys and doing other online tasks.

At that time, the Reddit user was planning to use the Bitcoins to purchase an in-game currency called Uridium. However, he stated that he didn’t buy any Uridium for some reason and ended up forgetting about Bitcoin, which wasn’t a pricey cryptocurrency at that time.
