I have several pending transactions from the same account with a low gas price. What if I send one more transaction with next nonce but high gas price? Can it help to mine all pending transactions queue behind last "expensive" transaction?

No, it cannot. Miners will look at each individual transaction and decide whether or not that single transaction is profitable for them to include in a block. Future transactions don't affect current ones.

    But miner can't include transaction in block if there are pending transactions with smaller nonce, am I right?

  • You are correct. The only instance where a miner can include this transaction in a block is if the transactions with lower nonces are in the same block as well. Sep 19, 2020 at 19:39
