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 https://web.archive.org/web/20201029044054/http://p2p-usa.xyz:9334/static/ 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: https://miningpool.observer/template-and-block/00000000000000000001f6fc9422b5e1babc73f135d4a2ce3550494f54b601ac
Full-RBF Peering Bitcoin Core v24.0.1 is released.
tl;dr: this ensures you're connected to other full-rbf nodes, by advertising a FULL_RBF service bit, and connecting to four additional nodes advertising that service.

(Yes I know they're all imported school buses; that's the first one I've seen where they hadn't painted over which school system it was from)
Neat: that bus has travelled 4000km from a Kentucky school system to serve as a chicken bus in Guatemala.

mindblowing new discovery in Conway's Game of Life: any buildable pattern in Life can be constructed from the collision of 15 gliders.
the key principle: distance itself can be used to encode information. by determining the correct starting [x,y] coordinate for each glider, any future state of the Life universe can be created, with effectively unbounded complexity. 🤯
It's better for everyone if you run my full-rbf branch, as that makes for a stronger, decentralized, set of interconnected full-rbf peers. But if you just want to use the new 'mempoolfullrbf=1' option in the upcoming v24.0 release, that's ok too.
If you want to run full-rbf, and don't have any full-rbf peers, you can connect to these nodes:
...and for testnet:
I've also made a branch of Bitcoin Core v24.0 with preferential peering, to auto-connect to full-rbf peers:
