DOS attack

Hi, found this on Reddit today, what’s your opinion on that?

Im not sure if the scenario above is correct, how ever it makes no sense to focus on scalability at that point of the project as we dont have that many transactions on our blockchain.

How ever there is a solution for the scalability “problems” in the near future → Enter the Hydra: scaling distributed ledgers, the evidence-based way - IOHK Blog


The head part certainly looks promising, let’s hope we’ll get a full hydra in the near future. As for such a DoS attack, it requires a significant investment for an uncertain result, hard to predict the devaluation that would occur or the consequences of a network congestion on exchanges.
