While browsing reddit, I found a post with criticisms of various crypto projects, tezos including. But what caught my eye specifically was this part.
Also, is there already a “opcode gas cost” table for Michelson? Last time I checked, it had lambdas, which means you need a beta-reduction opcode. It wasn’t clear how they plan to measure the cost of a beta-reduction, which is NOT a constant-time operation. If they can’t measure it properly, that will either make Tezos an easy target for DDOS, or massively hinder its scalability as they’ll eventually need to severely lower the “gas limit” to compensate for ultra-expensive beta-reduction attacks (such as exponentiation of Church-Nat).
Is there any validity to that statement? Should this be a concern?
