Has any miner ever earned their 50/25 BTC solving a block with only one or two transactions? Maybe they got lucky before the full ten minutes?

1 Answer 1


Thousands of early blocks are empty except for the required generation transaction. See block #1, for example.

  • Also, some miners (just to be annoying) mine empty blocks (only containing the 25BTC reward transaction)
