Would someone please be so kind as to explain how a block with a 43 second prop time wins a height battle???
- Block #: 6777986
- Pool ID: 2cf87fadec7130c7e41910492073ae4dbe65ca462c1fdc3d2a56d015
Perhaps I could use a refresher on shallow forks/rollbacks, but this just doesn't add up in my head... as far as I understand, the only way this is possible is if the higher-slot leader does not "receive" the previous block, and posts their own block in place of the most recent one. For such a large prop time, this seems like a massive arbitrage opportunity for the higher slot leader.
What can be done about, or is there a way to minimize, this?
