Strange activity of 30,000 addresses recorded in the Litecoin network
Recover from Sending to an Address from a different Crypto (LTC to BTC, BTC to LTC, BCH to BTC)
One of the Litecoin developers reported suspicious activity on the network, which may be associated with the summer dust attack.
Franklin Richards wrote in your blog, that lately, on the Litecoin network, one can periodically observe large-scale automated actions behind which unknown persons stand.
According to him, usually, on average, active transactions are made by about 40 thousand addresses, but statistics from BitInfoCharts show that every seven days this figure jumps to 70 thousand, and then drops sharply again. These abnormal peaks are visible even with a quick glance..
The developer believes that this strange behavior on the network, which has been going on since August, is associated with the summer dust attack, when unknown persons massively sent microtransactions to the addresses of users at 0.00000546 LTC in order to track their further movement and de-anonymize the owners..
However, Franklin Richards notes that without access to additional data tools, it is difficult to analyze strange activity and its impact on the network..
Recall that earlier Litecoin founder Charlie Lee explained the reason for the lack of protocol updates on for a long time.
