Hey,

I walked along the tangle on thetangle.org and found this transaction:

https://thetangle.org/transaction/9EBGIYXWGIFNANLLSZDIXKXZMBYOPQZJHMSGLSKPN9PPNPFNGGRDVTHIHXWRY9WUH9WKCRIBMUH999999
https://iotasear.ch/transaction/9EBGIYXWGIFNANLLSZDIXKXZMBYOPQZJHMSGLSKPN9PPNPFNGGRDVTHIHXWRY9WUH9WKCRIBMUH999999

1) Can someone explain to me how the sending adress could be 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 and how it could be confirmed?

2) There are a lot of other transactions with value 0 and address "999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999" but I think it's just "spam" to confirm transactions?

Thanks a lot!
