Bible Quotation Spotted on Bitcoin Block Number 666,666
A Biblical message was seen recorded in block number 666,666 of the Bitcoin blockchain: “Do not be overcome by evil…”
A certain biblical message was seen encrypted in a transaction in block number 666,666 of the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain.
The message is a quotation from the sixth book in the New Testament, St.Paul’s epistle to the Romans. The message was first seen by @firstname.lastname@example.org, it reads:
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good – Romans 12:21.”
The transaction in question saw an equal amount of Bitcoin — 432,100 satoshis ($160) — sent to two different addresses. The first several characters of those addresses contain the words “God” and “Bible.”
The person who sent the transaction paid over $50 in fees. This is more than 5x the normal peak average fee on Bitcoin blockchain in a day via bitinfocharts.com records. This suggests that the sender’s interest was to solely have the transaction, and the message, included in block 666,666 specifically.

“The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.”
The second scenario last year during what professionals called the “first phase of the United States Federal Reserve’s money-printing spree”, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Block number 630,000 revealed the following message:
“NYTimes 09/Apr/2020 With $2.3T Injection, Fed’s Plan Far Exceeds 2008 Rescue.”
Aside these top scenarios, people usually encrypt messages on Bitcoin blockchain through a sent transaction. These messages varies from different individual and organisation memories and records.
