Someone made a $2.6 million mistake on Ethereum In the process of sending $130 over the Ethereum blockchain, someone accidentally paid $2.6 million in fees. Whoops.
Regarding the first transaction, SparkPool announced they’re investigating it and that they’ve seen similar incidents before. “There will be a solution in the end.” Bitfly said that their Ethermine pool mined the second transaction with this enormous fee, saying that this is likely an accident. They’re calling the sender to contact them right away.
