About 1 billion USD moved in one go, without any intermediaries, over a decentralized p2p network of nodes running nothing but free software: https://blockstream.info/tx/4410c8d14ff9f87ceeed1d65cb58e7c7b2422b2d7529afc675208ce2ce09ed7d
@raucao Wonder why they paid a $650 fee tho?
@aran A combination of large amount of input UTXOs, not being able to benefit from SegWit (due to incompatible inputs), and them likely wanting it confirmed as fast as possible.
To me, the interesting metric there is that even with $650 tx fee, that's just 0.00007% of the total amount moved.
