  1. >Bitcoin Core #15759 increases the number of outbound connections the node will make from 8 to 10. The two new connections will only be used to announce and relay new blocks; they won’t announce or relay unconfirmed transactions or addr peer-discovery messages. Only announcing blocks minimizes the bandwidth and memory overhead of the new connections and makes it much more difficult for an adversary to map the connections between nodes.

    Nice
