Abuse and unauthorized usage of a developer’s throughput by an Application Client.
If the protocol has no confirmation mechanism for each client using a developer’s throughput, then any client with the public Developer ID can utilize the allotted bandwidth.
The Pocket Network protocol needs a way to confirm that an Application Client is from a specific developer.
Within the Pocket Ecosystem, an Application Client is any
person using an app built by an Application
Developer (defined in 3.1.2 of the whitepaper).
