    Bankrupt Japanese firm Mt Gox has said that it has found 200,000 lost bitcoins. The Tokyo-based exchange said it discovered the missing virtual currency in an old digital wallet. Mt Gox said the coins were worth 116 million dollars, around 85 million euros.

    Formerly the world’s biggest bitcoin exchange, Mt Gox filed for bankruptcy in February after it admitted losing hundreds of millions of euros to online hackers – nearly its entire holdings of the digital currency.
