RE: Response to Cosmos white paper's claims on DPOS security
Good writeup, as always.
How difficult would it be to catch a single block producer who includes transactions in the wrong order? It seems like it would be pretty easy for a block producer to front-run market and voting transactions to skim a little more cash for himself. There's not a lot of money in voting transactions, but perhaps quite a bit in market transactions.
Obviously if you went looking for such activities with the proper statistical tools, it wouldn't be hard to find evidence of them if they're happening. But in the current implementation, are there any automatic safeguards for this? Would block validators know if this were occurring?
