Replacing earn.com with another TTP / CPOF is not an acceptable solution IMO. If we wanted to do that we could simply query the mempool.space API at https://mempool.space/api/v1/fees/recommended which is the same as https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/api/v1/fees/recommended but this would just make everyone trust my node, which is why I'm proposing that all pricenodes run their own open-source backends for local fee estimation in the spirit of decentralization. AFAIK all pricenode operators already operate bitcoin nodes, so this is very easy to arrange.
