The reward is built-in reward + transaction fees. So what is the maximum in block chain?

We all expect transaction fees to overcome built-in block reward at some point in the future. So where are we now? Has anyone received 55 BTC for a block (50 builtin and 5 fees)?

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

That topic is about largest transaction fees.

This topis is about largest block rewards. I wonder if many small fees have accumulated to create something like 5 BTC.

That 180 BTC single transaction fee is nonsense and was probably created for fun or by mistake.

Since every block so far is exactly 50 BTC + fees, the block with the largest fees is the same block as the largest block rewards.

Definitely an outlier:

The block with the largest fees and the block containing the top transaction fee are not necessarily the same Smiley Many small fees can overcome a single large fee.
