What is full-RBF? Why is it good for multiparty protocols like conjoin? Why is it good for wallets and miners? And why do a small minority hate it with a passion?

(we all gotta take a break from ordinal drama you know)

Not good.

We really need miners to move off Foundry to smaller pools.

Interesting! Foundry USA mined a full-rbf double-spend, with a few minutes between tx #1 and tx #2:

My best guess is this has something to do with unconfirmed inputs. My stock v24.0 node saw both tx #1 and tx #2 at the same time initially, but rejected the latter for spending an unconfirmed input. Then a few minutes later, it accepted tx #2 once the input confirmed.

Interesting! A full-rbf doublespend just got mined by... a miner on P2Pool!

I didn't even know P2Pool still existed. And it kinda doesn't: according to the expected time between blocks right now is 3.2 years. Looks like the last block was 2 years ago.

Seems like the particular P2Pool miner that found the block had a high minimum fee, as the block only contained the high-fee parts of the mempool:

One reason why you should set 'mempoolfullrbf=1' on your nodes, and especially, mining nodes: insane people like Craig Wright would love to find excuses to sue miners for mining double spends.

Better to set the standard now: unconfirmed means unconfirmed.

TFW when you block and report someone for spamming every repo with identical code of conduct requests. πŸ˜‚

The left hates it when people protect themselves from violence with weapons. Both at the individual level, and at the level of entire countries.

Disgusting and evil.
