That’s about $ 80,000, given the current $ 120 ETH price.

The transmitter was Coinone, one of South Korea’s popular crypto exchanges. This made things even more interesting. It was not known whether the transaction occurred in the first place as a result of an error or whether it was part of a money laundering plan. The second possibility was weak considering that the sender was a regulated exchange. In the following hours, questions were answered.

It turned out that the $ 80,000 transaction fee was paid due to the error of a Coinone employee. Korean broadcast news agency Decenter reported that Coinone described the transaction as an accident caused by carelessness.

An official from the exchange said, “This was a mistake caused by the recent changes we made to our systems. We have reorganized the protocols we use in the testing process of our processes to prevent any repetition. ” said.
