    An abnormally expensive Bitcoin (BTC) transaction has once again occurred and reported on 18th November 2020.

    According to Blockchain.com, someone has just paid a $47,419 fee in order to move just $194 worth of Bitcoin at block height 657535.

    The block with the “jackpot” was produced by the mining arm of the leading cryptocurrency exchange Huobi.

    “Goose-egg” transfers are rather rare

    So-called “goose egg” transactions have been around since the inception of the blockchain but they don’t happen often.

    47 grand is just pocket change compared to the 291 BTC ($5.2 mln at press time) someone shelled out just to transfer a minuscule $1.78 back in April 2016.

    This August, the cryptocurrency community got baffled by mysterious Ethereum transactions with multi-million gas fees. Some suspected that they were meant to launder ill-gotten gains.
