Charlie Lee is going to test his own ideas in Litecoin network.
I'm proposing an upgrade to Litecoin with a soft fork that will let miners signal their min accepted fee in the block header. This will let a fee market develop without having us decide what the min fee is. Will also make it easier for users to estimate fees. More details later.

Thanks to this solution, users do not have to determine for themselves what minimum amount of commissions they will need to pay for a quick confirmation of transactions. Instead, they will have available information from the miners, based on which it will be possible to calculate the median commission size for the last 100 blocks and indicate the amount that guarantees confirmation within the nearest blocks.
Since the minimum commission amount will be included in the block header, this data will also be available for wallets using the simplified payment verification (SPV) method.
Also, Charlie Lee added that in the next release of the reference client Litecoin, the minimum commission for transmitting transactions on the network will be reduced from 0.001 LTC / kb ($ 0.30 / kb) to 0.00001 LTC ($ 0.003 / kb). Transaction fees will then be reduced to 0.0001 LTC / kb ($ 0.03 / kb).
