Bitomat's mistake (the story)

17,000 bitcoins were missed in July 2011 after Bitomat, then the third-largest bitcoin exchange, lost access to his wallet.dat file.

That amount of coins were then valued at approx. $220,000, now they would worth $922,600,200.

The operator tried to sell the service for the missing amount with the intention to refund the affected customers.
