The sender of the Bitcoin transaction with a huge commission of $510,000 turned out to be the blockchain infrastructure company Paxos. The Block reports this.
A company representative confirmed the overpayment, explaining it as a one-time error.
“This only affected Paxos’ corporate activities. Paxos customers and end users were not impacted and all customer funds are safe,” he added.
The crypto service provider has already contacted the mining pool F2Pool, which processed the transaction, for a refund.
Let us remind you that on September 10, Rahos paid 1,982,108,632 satoshi ($510,750) as a commission to miners for transferring 0.074 BTC (~$1800). This is the largest payment in dollar terms for confirming a transaction.
