Full-RBF Peering Bitcoin Core v25.0 Released

Developer Peter Todd released Bitcoin Core version 25.0 with full-rbf peering code.

Full-RBF Peering Bitcoin Core v25.0 Released
  • "It's Bitcoin Core v25.0, with Antoine Riard's full-rbf peering code, and some additional minor updates to it."
  • This does two things for full-rbf nodes:

  1) Advertises a FULL_RBF service bit when mempoolfullrbf=1 is set.
  2) Connects to four additional FULL_RBF peers.

  • "Doing this ensures that a core group of nodes are reliably propagating full-rbf replacements. We don't need everyone to run this. But it'd be helpful if more people did."
"Full-rbf peering advertises the fact that you've done this with a service bit, and ensures you are connected to at least four other nodes also advertising that bit. Basically full-rbf peering ensures that txs propagate well," Todd wrote on Stacker.news.
  • The developer also shared a link to his blog post where he provides a detailed rationale on why more people should run full-rbf.
