The miner paid for that deal with almost 30 million gwei.
F2Pool mined the last proof-of-work (PoW) ether (ETH) block before the network switched to proof-of-stake (PoS) this morning.
Data shows that the last ether block before the Merge was 15537393. F2Pool paid a gas fee of about 29,991,429 gwei, which is the smallest unit of ether.
In the block, the miner wrote a message in Mandarin. It said “F!,” which means “Colorful Angelfish F!”
F2Pool did not respond right away when asked for a comment.
The miner, which started in 2013, was one of the first pools to mine bitcoin (BTC).
After the merge, new blocks were made on the Ethereum network as usual and without any problems. Ether prices stayed the same after the Merge.
