A mistake or money laundering?
Earlier today, someone paid 10,668.73 Ethers in gas, to move $134 of the asset from one wallet to another, for comparison, the average price of gas today is $0.34. The most natural assumption is that the sender must have made a mistake.
Although the sender has not come forward, SparkPool, the miner of that transaction, has frozen it until they can figure out what happened.

The largest transaction ever made
A Coinfirm spokesman suggested that rather than being an unfortunate accident, there is also the possibility that someone is trying to launder money through an elaborate scheme, however, this is the largest inflow of capital that SparkPool has ever experienced.
A spokesman for Bithumb confirmed to Bitcoin Rejoin that the recipient’s address belongs to one of its customers, and that later the 0.55 ETH commission was transferred to its cold wallet.
