I was thinking about VB and others call to increase the gas limit above 8M, and thought how could I help. I’m not a miner, so there goes that. But maybe there is a way, maybe I can have my transactions only be available to miners that support a higher gas limit. This can be generalized to enable users to support specific miners (or pools or subsets), at the cost of longer validation times (if I select 20% of the miners, I’ll have to wait 5x as long for the first confirmation). This small incentive (assuming it’s not only me) can be used to signal miners and encourage specific behaviors (until ETH 2.0).

How can this be done? I can encrypt my transaction with the public key of the miners. Only they will be able to recover the transaction, and include it in their next block. This will require them to be looking for such broadcasts, and probably a dedicated P2P for encrypted messages (I would guess a miner will not broadcast other miners messages), but should be relatively straightforward.

What do you guys think? Is this something we want, maybe as a feature in standard wallets?
