GasPrice lower than MinimumGasPrice in RSK

RSK has a “minimumGasPrice” at block level, this value is set by the miners and can be negotiated by them with a variation of 1% between blocks. A transaction with gasPrice lower than minimum is rejected.
Actually, Nifty takes this value as gasPrice for the transaction. This is ok in a “steady context”, but when the value is under negotiation, this approach could be a problem (Nifty takes MGP and -before broadcasting- a new block with a 1% higher MGP appears that makes the transaction invalid).
What is recommended here is to set minimumGasPrice + 10%, because this gives a sufficient margin to the tx to be valid and mined.

Please let me know if you need further explanation or have any doubts.

Best regards

Gas price adjustment implemented for RSK chain in 5.1.6. Not published yet.
