5/X OK, but what if someone starts sending BGP traffic to random internet routers and tries to get them to route traffic wrongly? Each network provider maintains a list of other network providers it will take BGP updates from.

6/X These lists comprise of large tech companies, ISPs, and some governments. A BGP misconfiguration in one of these key providers will cause affected blocks of the internet to no longer be able to route traffic, effectively disconnecting them from the wider internet.

7/X "But this will never happen at large" in 2008 a Pakistani ISP attempted to use a BGP route to block Pakistani users from visiting YouTube and accidentally advertised it to neighbouring ISPs causing users in other regions to be unable to access Youtube.

8/X In 2014 an attacker used "BGP hijacking" to redirect connections from mining pools to a node they controlled, causing miners to unknowingly mine for the attacker. This was caused by a Canadian ISP being hacked to supply the wrong BGP data.

9/X In 2018 MyEtherWallet was targeted, causing traffic to instead be routed to a phishing website. Yes I know the above examples targeted specific services and not crypto/p2p networks as a whole, but there's always pressure points that such an attack could target....

12/X Or better yet, let's talk about decentralising the base layer of the internet. Short article I wrote in 2019: medium.com/unitychain/infrasโ€ฆ

Addendum: I'm excited about 'transport blind' P2P libraries like libp2p, allows us to experiment and build alternative transport infrastructure like bluetooth mesh networking. See for some cool examples: berty.tech/blog/bluetooth-loโ€ฆ briarproject.org/
