- Full-RBF Peering Bitcoin Core v24.0.1 Released
- At least 17% of v24.x listening nodes are running full-rbf This data is also an underestimate: I'm only measuring successful propagation.
- RBF Replacement Monitor
- miners who have made a long-term capital investment in mining equipment might instead prefer to optimize fee income over multiple blocks It's also possible that owners of ASICs or pool operators will decide that they're in this for the long term, and therefore that it's smarter to look at fee income over multiple blocks, rather than taking each block as its own entity. Similar to treating the prisoner's dilemma as a one-off game (where the dominant strategy is to always defect) versus an iterated game (where cooperation or tit-for-tat may be better strategies).
