F2Pool, a prominent Bitcoin mining pool, has returned an accidentally overpaid network fee of 19.82 BTC to Paxos, a stablecoin issuer and crypto brokerage firm. The transaction involved a modest 0.07 BTC, but the network fee attached to it amounted to nearly 20 BTC. Paxos clarified that they overpaid the fee due to a transfer bug. F2Pool initially offered to return the fee if the rightful owner claimed it within three days, sparking criticism within the Bitcoin community. This incident highlights the need for caution and responsibility within the cryptocurrency space.
