I recently saw a .5 BTC fee on a tx covering hundreds of BTC. That got me thinking... what is the largest fee ever paid?

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

I don't have a link or know when it was, but I recall discussion of a 140+BTC fee that was paid to Deepbit at one point.

I don't believe it's possible to sort blockexplorer or blockchain.info by fee size.

Over 185200 blocks now, how would it even be possible to efficiently find this out?

Sorting 185k (id,fee)-pairs by fee would take … less than 0.05s.

Here's an 85 BTC fee:

Looks accidental, but who knows...

Hmm... I'm wondering about downloading the blockchain, then writing a program to go through the TX's and look for a fat fee...

Based on http://blockchain.info/charts/transaction-fees it can't be any bigger than 300. That's how I found the 85 BTC fee, by looking at blocks around the 300BTC daily fee spike.
