Good Whale Hunting

A quick thought: how do we know this was an “attack”? Could it be, for example, that it was intended to spoof the growth of the bitcoin network by making it seem like more organic transactions are happening than actual?

I don’t know the whole story but it seems like it could have been an attempt to manipulate growth metrics of bitcoin.

I suppose that theory may be a bit counterintuitive though if it caused mempool backlogs that degraded user experience.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
