The F2Pool mining pool, at the request of the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange, integrated the title of the article “House Gives Final Approval to Biden’s $ 1.9T Pandemic Relief Bill Mine” by The New York Times (NYT) on March 10, 2021 into the Bitcoin blockchain.
On 03 / Jan / 2009, Satoshi coded a message into the Bitcoin Genesis Block. As a nod to Satoshi on our listing day, we asked @ f2pool_official to embed a message in the Bitcoin blockchain: https://t.co/lwHNlTUskt

The NYT headline talks about the adoption by the US government of a $ 1.9 trillion economic support package aimed at combating the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The measures proposed by US President Joe Biden provide for the payment of $ 1,400 to citizens with a salary of less than $ 75,000 a year. Another provision extends the unemployed support plan until September.
The message in block # 679187 is an allusion to the title of the article “Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks” by the British edition of The Times, which Satoshi Nakamoto embedded in the hash of the Bitcoin genesis block.
More than 12 years have passed since the launch of the main Bitcoin network on January 3, 2009.
