Based on this answer from 2014, bitcoin nodes are vulnerable to BGP hijacking although I am looking for more details about how BGP hijacking attack could affect Bitcoin p2p network.

What could be helpful?

  • Research articles or paper describing attacks, analysis of bitcoin nodes and their networks
  • Best practices for a user and and exchange using bitcoin node

Lot of cryptocurrency services have been attacked recently and last attack affected AWS IP addresses.

  • I’m voting to close this question because it is a summary of some recent events and the only question I can see is “Has someone else written about this?”.

  • @Murch I had tried writing short question in bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/114795/… and you expected a summary. This question is closed because it has summary with a question. There are lot of questions in which someone asked for research articles or papers: bitcoin.stackexchange.com/search?q=research

    I didn't say it's off-topic, I am pointing out that it's unclear what the scope of your interest is, and what sort of answer would satisfy your query. Your question post does not pose a practical, answerable question that inspires answers that explain “why” and “how”. Further you seem to expect that a potential responder read one or several links to find out what you're interested in. If there is a question in there, you may want to rephrase it more explicitly such as “How could BGP attacks be used to attack Bitcoin?”, “How could one defend Bitcoin against BGP attacks?” or whatever your Q is.

    I agree here; I don't think there is much to say here apart from "apparently not". If you'd reformulate your question as "In what ways does BGP hijacting affect Bitcoin?", or something more specific, I think there'd be a lot more to say. Sep 26, 2022 at 13:42
