Incentivizing a Robust P2P Network/Relay Layer


Is the A_i that each relayer adds to the transaction bundle and signs the address at which they wish to be paid their hop fee? I initially understood the hop fee payments to be made to the PK_1, ..., PK_n keys, which was somewhat confusing.


Here’s a citation on incentivizing propagations in the context of Bitcoin. I haven’t read all of it yet, just the abstract. The actual paper is here.
