So, most of us have had this experience before—you’re supposed to send a specific amount to a friend, say $20. And in a split second, you mistakenly added two more zeros.
If that wasn’t enough, you later noticed that you sent it to the wrong account. 😣
You know the feeling of shock mixed with fear and… you get the point 😂🤦
We’re pretty sure the team at Paxos experienced every emotional phase after paying a whopping $500k in Bitcoin transaction fees to send $2,000.
Luckily for them, the miner “unwillingly” agreed to return the money.
His unwillingness stemmed from him being “annoyed” that “the person claiming it (the funds) kept saying EST instead of EDT/UTC.” 😂
But we all know why he was unwilling.
Anyway, what would you have done if you were the miner?

Paxos confirms it’s responsible for paying a $500K Bitcoin transaction fee
On Sept. 13, Paxos revealed to Cointelegraph that it overpaid the BTC network fee on Sept. 10, to a miner who goes by the pseudonym Chun. While confirming that the event did not impact the traders’ funds, the platform admitted that a system bug resulted in the disbursement of 20 BTC in mining rewards on one transaction.
While Chun initially agreed to refund the reward, he decided to reconsider his decision and reached out to the crypto community for advice.
