Let's suppose that I can only reach one anonymous node in order to communicate my transaction to the rest of the network. The reason could be related to some global catastrophe resulting in connectivity problems, or something like that. Does this one node have any incentive to relay my transaction to be included in a block? I know that whoever mines the block can claim the transaction fee, but can something similar be done by whoever receives a particular transaction?
