Minesweeper 2010

Hat tip to Brews and Bitcoins for posting this one over on reddit.
Looks like some old miner swept up 20 of their old bit coins to distribute to some close friends, or pay off a mining pool payout.  Blockchain.info has no information in ownership or mining claim.

The reason I posted this, however, is to look at the mind numbing appreciation of the value of bitcoin over the past 4 years.  A mere $250 of mined coin from over four years ago is worth over a half a million dollars today.  Yowza.

If you want to play around with this yourself you can download the 1.1 release of my "Follow the Bitcoin" toy at Github.
