Mehr Ali is a young bilingual journalist from Afghanistan working for the English language version of Khaama Press online. His main responsibility include researching and writing news reports for the sports, tech and entertainment sections.

He claimed he purchased 10,000 Bitcoin in early 2010 as a punt, spending around £50 ($80) after being convinced by his college roommates – storing the keys on his laptop after transferring them from a USB.

As he graduated and started to get on with his life – he eventually forgot about the coins.

But then in 2014 as cryptocurrencies gained traction the now 25-year-old claimed he remembered his purchase and went back to look for it thinking he may be sitting on a huge fortune as Bitcoin’s value boomed.

And then when he went back home to try and find his old laptop – which had been sitting broken for years.

He says he discovered the device had been tossed out by his mum.

His 10,000 Bitcoin would now be worth £300million.
