Another weirdo spent about $173,000 for a 2.9 BTC transaction

Bitcoin: Another weirdo spent about $173,000 for a 2.9 BTC transaction

On January 16, 2024, an unknown address holding bitcoins sent a total of 2.9 BTC to another address. The transaction fee amounted to 4.03 BTC, which is equivalent to $173,148.

It is worth noting that users have had to pay significant amounts for bitcoin transfers in the past.

For example, in September 2023, an anonymous person paid an impressive sum of 19.8 BTC (about $510,000 at the time) to transfer just 0.074 BTC.

In November, the counterparty involved in the transaction sent a significant amount of 139.4 BTC to another address. The transaction fee for this transfer amounted to 83.65 BTC, equivalent to a staggering $3.14 million. However, the #AntPool mining pool team assured the public that they will refund the entire amount as soon as they receive confirmation from the owner.

The above-mentioned examples emphasize that the world of cryptocurrencies is dynamic, constantly changing, and every transaction is unique.

It is necessary to pay maximum attention to #security and check all the details of the transaction before sending it. All wallets pre-describe the future transaction before signing it, which, with due diligence, will always protect you from accidents and avoid the sad fate of becoming a hero of such news.
