Question
'In the whitepaper, it states:
'to avoid spamming and other attack styles, it is assumed that no entity can generate an abundance of transactions with “acceptable” weights in a short period of time.'
What is the justification behind this assumption?'

Cfb's Answer
'On the IoT IOTA's PoW will be network-bound. Combined with bandwidth constraints this gives a reasonable assumption that it will be hard to occupy big portion of the EM spectrum (because of necessity to have a lot of radio-modules and be spatially wide-spread)'
