Ethereum update: What can be done against this Fomo3D-clone which is DDoSing Ethereum?
So, from what I gather, 0xDd9fd6b6F8f7ea932997992bbE67EabB3e316f3C is a Chinese Fomo3D-clone called [“Lastwinner”](https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/95dzxo/gas_prices_on_ethereum_skyrocket_to_61_gwei_today/e3smfvp/). This and [two other](https://ethgasstation.info/gasguzzlers.php) top-gas-burning contracts related to it have been constantly taking up <50% of the block gas limit for days and keeping sensible gas prices around 50-60 Gwei.
Other than “we just have to wait it out” and “let’s work on scaling solutions”^1, what else can be done to stop this madness?
Do we know anything about the details of this game? What are the incentives? Who created/runs it? Who operates the transaction bot network which is flooding it?
Can miners choose not to include transactions to these contracts?
^1 What do we do when we have Plasma and state channels, but Chinese ponzi schemes or our friends at EOS choose not to use them?
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
