Why do some nodes perform attacks on the network, and what could they possibly gain from these sort of attacks?


  • Can you include the log excerpt as text instead of an image? It would be helpful to be able to copy and paste, and visually impaired people would appreciate it too. Also, perhaps you can look further up and include the version message for that node, from when you initially connected; it might reveal something. – Nate Eldredge Jun 27 '18 at 13:08
  • One guess is that this node is is not for Bitcoin but for one of its forks, e.g. Bitcoin Gold. – Nate Eldredge Jun 27 '18 at 13:13
