The things you don't think about can often bring you the most joy.
They manifest themselves to you at the most wonderful moments. Yes, sometimes they then leave you for a children's party magician, but that's not what happened to Kristoffer Koch.
In 2009, this no-doubt relaxed Norwegian wafted about his computer and decided to do a little online shopping. He spent 150 kroner (around $25.43) on some Bitcoins.
Actually, it was slightly more complex than that. At the time, he was writing a thesis about encryption and happened upon Bitcoin in passing.
As Norway's NRK reports, he made his purchase and then forgot all about it.
