    Accidental millionaire Kaique Nunes has a bug to thank after his withdrawal request of 500 reals ($128) erroneously returned a cool 137 million reals ($35.13 million) from Brazilian bitcoin exchange Bitcambio. Nunes was not too eager to part with his overnight millions when Bitcambio started contacting to effect a reversal of the transaction, suspecting an elaborate scam.

    The Brazilian walked into his fortune last month when he drafted an order for $128, and the facility responsible for the automatic computation of transactions landed him the nine-figure bug-induced surprise. The company has already canceled the transaction but, given its unwieldy size, local authorities insisted on getting the customer’s written agreement first.
