Bankrupt Japanese firm MtGox said in a filing that it has found 200,000 lost bitcoins.

The firm said it found the bitcoins - worth around $116m (£70m) - in an old digital wallet from 2011.

That brings the total number of bitcoins the firm lost down to 650,000 from 850,000.

Mark probably realized he hadn't hidden that part of the hoard well enough to get away with it. There's plenty left, though.

Like I wrote in my article, MtGox is a magic bank.

He "found" all those old coins that the scripts were splitting up last week most likely. Realized he couldn't get away with those ones.

Also lets remember that he said hackers stole all these coins, then 200,000 show up magically. I think "hackers" today means "we have no idea what happened".

I imagine that somewhere in the world a recycling program may be turning those data files into new silicon the tragedy!
But yah would prefer people found them than just a complete annihilation
