Mt.Gox said on Friday it found 200,000 "forgotten" bitcoins on March 7, a week after the Tokyo-based digital currency exchange filed for bankruptcy protection, saying it lost nearly all the 850,000 bitcoins it held, worth some $500 million at today's prices.

Mt.Gox made the announcement on its website. Online sleuths had noticed around 200,000 bitcoins moving through the crypto-currency exchange after the bankruptcy filing.

There’s enough fodder here for an episode of “American Greed.”

And he discovered that the $13,000 scrap metal trinket he was going to melt down is actually a Russian gold egg worth $33million.

It could happen...

Can you print your own bitcoins with a 3d printer?

The comments over at that site are brutal.

When Bitcoin finally evaporates do you think the value of my P-Marlowe coins will go through the roof?

you don't need a printer. All you need to do is claim that you have "x" amount of bitcoins in your wallet. Kinda like all those carbon credits that Al Gore has in his wallet.

Unless some virtual thief picks your virtual pocket and virtually steals your virtual wallet with your virtual money in it thus leaving you virtually broke.

Yes, if you have a valid bitcoin key. You can even print them using the printer you already have.

Here's an article about creating paper wallets.

I have "virtually" a million potential buyers of my P-Marlowe coin at the going rate of $800 per Coin US.

Since only a million will ever be "mined" the potential is there (if the P-Marlowe Coin becomes the international coin of the realm), that each coin could be ultimately worth a Trillion Dollars.

And if nobody else buys them from me, then conceivably I could virtually become the richest person in the history of the world.

So I am taking a huge risk in selling these things for a mere $800 each.

You're going to have to throw in Boardwalk, Park Place and B&O Railroad. I need some real estate to back up that paper money.
