How many bitcoins would it require for a sustained DOS attack on bitcoin network?

Without transaction fee, how many bitcoins would that be?

    7 transactions per second times 60 equals per minute times 60 equals per hour times 24 equals per day = 604800 satoshis sent in individual transactions. However, nodes filter such so-called "dust" transactions. The minimum output amount for a transaction to be relayed by the network is 546 satoshis. So: 330220800 satoshis = 3.302208 BTC to fill the network for a day. reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/37z9ln/… – vi.su. Jun 1 '15 at 13:34
