- From this Bitcoin.com article (10-12-2019):
"Miners have foregone their coinbase rewards at various block heights, with the most generous being 12.5 unclaimed BTC (the full block reward) at 501,726. Another miner tipped half of his reward, a sum totalling 6.25 BTC, in Satoshi’s direction at block height 526,591. The most intense patterns of such behavior occurred at heights 162,000, 180,000-230,000 and 530,000, with over 1,200 anomalies recorded."
