Officially, this transaction is recognized as the largest in terms of dollars. On September 6, 2019, a billionth transaction in bitcoins was recorded. At that time, 94,504 BTC were transferred — $ 1.018 bln for a $700 fee. The largest real-time bitcoin transaction is considered to be a transaction of 500,000 BTC, completed on November 16, 2011. Then, in terms of dollars, the amount was $1.32 mln, and today this amount could be approximately $3.5 bln.

It is worth noting that a fee of less than one dollar for such a large transaction is an indicator of the absolute superiority of bitcoin over the traditional banking system. When making such a transaction through a bank, the operation would take several working days and the fee would definitely have several zeros.
