The mempool is the gateway to the blockchain. Before anything can be written on a block, it must first move through the mempool.
We have written extensively about the mempool. We suggest reading:
There is no such thing as "The" Mempool. There is no canonical, master reference mempool. Instead, there are many mempools. Every node has its own unique mempool. So there are as many mempools as there are nodes.
The composition of transactions inside of a node's mempool is driven by a number of factors:
- Configuration settings
- Peering relationships
These factors mean that getting your arms around the entire mempool on your own can be next to impossible.
