Ethereum-Pool Has Frozen An Strange High Reward Of $ 300 Thousands
The Sparkpool mining pool decided to freeze the reward of 2,103,1485 for the block # 7 238 290. The organization suggests such a high commission could have been paid by someone in error, and were considering the possibility of a refund.
The head of the Sparkpool Xin Xu argues that users of the pool understand and agree with the decision, given the size of the amount involved.
“We have the opportunity to correct the problem. Honesty is our priority. ”
Recall, the most expensive transaction in the entire history of the project was traslated on the Ethereum network. For four transactions, the total amount of which was $ 195 or less than 0.15 ETH, a commission of $ 454,500 was paid. The first transaction the user sent 0.01 ETH ($ 1.47) and paid a commission of 210 ETH (approximately $ 30,850) . In the next two transactions in the amount of $ 2.94, the fee charged for the transfer of ETH amounted to 420ETH, while the most shocking was the commission of 2100 ETH ($ 308.553) for the transfer of $ 14.69 or 0.1 ETH.

At the moment, the identity of the owner of this ETH wallet has not been established. But given the frequency of transactions, it is be able to conclude that the owner is a developer who most likely did not bother to properly test the dApp codes before interacting with Mainnet.
If this is true, then this is another call for projects that create dApps on the Ethereum blockchain, about the need for proper checks before running their applications in Mainnet.
