How Does a Crypto Dusting Attack Work?

Distribution of Small Amounts The attacker sends “dust” of crypto to a huge amount of an individual wallet address in a specific blockchain network.

Transaction Tracking While the values of funds transferred are little, the respective transaction particulars are clear and can be found in the blockchain database by anyone exploring it

De-Anonymization This data could be used by attackers to locate attack and link various addresses with a single organization.

Targeting Specific Addresses When these addresses get interlinked, another set of techniques can be used by the attacker to abuse weaknesses and deliver precise assaults.
