Later, the owners of the account explained that it was a false alarm:

“User EOS under the name “fuckhacker.x” figured out how to create a large fake a transaction, but EOS seems to be able to locate the source. Unfortunately, the transaction has been transmitted to the network before it had to remove. We added additional checks to prevent such incidents in the future.”

To fool the algorithm Whale Alert Joker managed by the so-called “deferred transactions”. As the name implies, it is a promise to transfer in the future, however, imposes no obligations on the sender.

“There is no guarantee that deferred action will be implemented, – I wrote to the manufacturer of blocks EOS New York Twitter. – It was a deferred transaction. A transaction is created to send deferred transactions, may be indicative only of how the request was received successfully or not. After transmission, the transaction is subject to the standard test of validity”.

In November of last year caught everyone’s eye like the fake transaction in the blockchain Stellar, when an unknown sender tried to pass 99 999 999 999 XLM, which is 5 times higher than the total number of XLM in circulation.
