RFC: Weighted Uniform Random Tip-Selection #8
@gjeee First thanks for your comments, please use the review feature next time as the way you wrote your comments they don't target specific lines (even though they should/do)
Regarding your first comment:
The text from the RFC says:
The green transactions are not
Regarding your second comment:
Only ever one milestone does confirm a given transaction, there's no need to say oldest in this context. Of course newer milestone still reference previous transactions but in this context it is clear that we're talking about the milestone which confirms a transaction.
A tip should stay in the tip pool for some time, even if it got referenced by other transactions.
Maybe have two criteria at the same time? A minimum time after first reference by another tx or a maximum amount of references. If one of the two criteria is reached, the tip is removed from the pool.
