Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about Blocknative. If you have additional questions, please join our Discord Community to connect with the team.

What is the mempool?

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: 

Can I just run my own node?

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
  • Topology

These factors mean that getting your arms around the entire mempool on your own can be next to impossible. 

Blocknative is committed to democratizing access to mempool data and providing next-generation tools to make this data easy to act on. Our Global Mempool Data Platform is high-availability and low-latency. This powers profit for traders and transparency for builders.
