Rucknium submits CCS proposal to conduct statistical research to improve Monero's privacy

Rucknium1 has submitted a CCS proposal2 looking to carry out statistical research to improve Monero’s privacy in aftermath of the suspected flood attack3:

I propose to carry out statistical research to improve Monero’s privacy, guide protocol decisions, and respond to Monero developer requests for statistical analysis of code changes where needed. [..] In the short them, analysis of the suspected flood attack is a higher priority. After, I will put hours into finishing the OSPEAD CCS proposal. Then after OSPEAD I will return to putting hours into this CCS proposal.

Proposed funding: 204 XMR.

ETA: ~3 months (13 weeks).
