Terra Luna Classic community is taking steps to prevent spam attacks on the chain and proposing several measures such as increasing gas fees. A proposal of increasing gas fees by 10x is submitted claiming current levels for transactions are extremely low and causing attacks feasible and economical.

Terra Luna Classic 10X Gas Fees Proposal

Proposal 12095 “10x Gas Fees” is currently under voting on the Station wallet and getting significant amount of votes in favor as the Terra Luna Classic community considers it crucial.

The proposal claims gas fees on-chain are extremely low, requiring only 3.74 LUNC for a transaction. Transaction spam attacks against our network are seen as feasible and economical to perform because of this situation. To prevent this, the proposal suggests raising gas fees by 10x.

The gas fees from transactions are split 50% to the community pool and 50% to staking rewards. Thus, the proposal asserts it would increase the costs of transaction attacks against the network. However, the proposal could have a notable impact on dapps and chain partners due to high fees.

“Raising gas fees offers no real benefit in reducing impacts of chain attacks and creates additional problems for applications which we should be encouraging,” said TerraCVita.

The current voting status indicates 76.56% votes in favor, with 17 out of 30 validators supporting the proposal.

Genuine Labs also submitted a proposal to counter peer-to-peer storm attacks on the Terra Classic chain by decreasing MaxBlockSize from 5mb to 2mb.
