👉 Bitcoin Optech #257

  • summarizes an idea for preventing the pinning of coinjoin transactions
  • describes a proposal for speculatively using hoped-for consensus changes
  • includes ‘Waiting for confirmation #7: Network Resources’ from our series about policies for transaction relay & mempool inclusion

A previous post discussed protecting node resources, which may be unique to each node and thus sometimes configurable. We also made our case for why it is best to converge on one policy, but what should be part of that policy? This post will discuss the concept of network-wide resources, critical to things like scalability, upgradeability and accessibility of bootstrapping and maintaining a full node.
