OTCbid - A German programmer has 2 chances to guess his IronKey password or he’ll lose $280m in BTC

" While the Bitcoin price has recorded historic growth – increasing by 92% in a month and about 340% in a year – one investor is locked out of accessing his riches because he forgot his IronKey password.

IronKey gives users 10 guesses to get their password right before encrypting the hard drive’s contents; Thomas has two more tries left.
