The Bitcoin mining pool AntPool has promised to return the $3 million charge it paid to mine the transaction last week.
The $3 million Bitcoin fee was frozen by the mining pool’s risk control system as soon as the transaction was completed on November 23, the mining pool revealed on Thursday. In order to recover the cost, the transaction sender has been requested to get in touch by December 10th and confirm ownership.
According to AntPool, you can confirm address ownership by signing a message about the Antpool with a Bitcoin wallet like Electrum or Bitcoin Core. Businesses typically take this action to locate and confirm the true owner of a blockchain address without disclosing their identify to the public.
The transaction, which attempted to transfer 55.77 BTC but inadvertently paid 83.65 BTC in fees, was noted as the most costly Bitcoin fee paid in USD.
It should be noted that an anonymous user asserted to be the one responsible for this transaction, claiming that a script being performed on the wallet was the reason for the significant overpayment.
