Homework on Mempool - Questions

  1. hat is the mempool?
    A mempool is where each node retains unconfirmed transaction and from which miners take transaction to mine and confirm

  2. What happens if the miners can’t keep up with the rate of the new transaction?
    The mempool will grow and if the unconfirmed transaction is not taken by a miner it will be returned and cancelled.

  3. How does a growing mempool effect transaction fees?
    A growing mempool means that the fees are not sufficient per byte to make it worth while so fees will start to increase.

  1. It is the collection of all unconfirmed transactions stored by any node.
  2. Question is not clear.
  3. The greater the mempool, generally implies more people are willing to transact at that time and as only Txns totalling size of 1 MB can be included in the new block, people who can’t wait for long time, have to pay higher fees.

Homework on Mempool - Questions

  1. What is the mempool?

The nodes memory for unconfirmed transactions, which are awaitng for miners to put the into the block and append them to network/blockchain.

IMPORTANT: if the unconfirmed transaction is not taken by a miner it will be returned to sender and cancelled.

  1. What happens if the miners can’t keep up with the rate of the new transaction?

The mempool is growing along with the fee.

  1. How does a growing mempool effect transaction fees?

It makes the fee going up.

  1. The mempool is the set of all tx waiting for enter in the blockchain. (being minned)
  2. The mempool grows
  3. As minners choose tx that pays the most, the avg fees will be higher

1- Mempool is a list of unconfirmed transactions on the node
2- the Mempool list keep growing
3- the miner keep looking for the transactionsame with the higher fee and keep ignoring the other with the low transactions fee

  1. a Mempool is a list of unconfirmed transactions waiting to be processed.
  2. The mempool will increase, resulting in longer transaction confirmation times and increased fees .
  3. Increased fees.
  1. A mempool is a list of unconfirmed transactions
  2. The mempool will become bigger
  3. The fees will increase
  • What is the mempool?
    Mempool is a node-local collection of unconfirmed transactions.
  • What happens if the miners can’t keep up with the rate of the new transaction?
    The mempool collection grows larger and the node must allocate more storage space to accommodate it.
  • How does a growing mempool effect transaction fees?
    A growing mempool means that demand for transaction processing increases and fees go up.

1 it,s place where are all unconform transactions are.
2 fees go up and longer transactions conforming time.
3 fees go higher.

  1. The mempool is a collection of verified (for validity) but unconfirmed transactions.

  2. If the miners can’t keep up with the rate of the new transactions, the mempool will grow in size. Both waiting times and transaction fees will increase.

  3. A growing mempool increases transaction fees.

  1. The mempool contains transactions that are submitted to the blockchain and awaiting verification by miners. The higher transaction fee that you include in transactions, the faster they will be confirmed out of the mempool and added to the blockchain.

  2. If miners can’t keep up with the rate of new transactions, the mempool grows in size and transaction times increase.

  3. A growing mempool increases transaction fees as people increase the fees associated with their transactions in hope of getting them approved faster.

  1. A holding area for bitcoin transaction in a full nodes before the miners pick up a block.
  2. The amount of transactions in the mempool will increase.
  3. Transactions with higher fees will get preference.
  1. The mempool in each node is the collection of unconfirmed transactions

  2. Then the mempool increases and the system prioritizes transactions with the highest fees

  3. Fees increase

  1. The mempool is a data structure that each node keeps with unconfirmed transactions
  2. The mempool will grow in size due to the amount of transactions coming in and not enough being confirmed in blocks, which leads to…
  3. Higher transaction fees, since miners will always pick transactions that include higher fees to be included in blocks, in a large mempool you have to pay higher fees if you want to see your transaction confirmed in a reasonable time.
  1. The mempool are transactions stored on nodes that are yet to be added to a block by miners.

  2. The miners will select the transactions with the highest fees and those with lower fees will experience significant delays.

  3. A growing mempool will result in higher fees as transactors compete to have their transactions added to the next block.

  1. The mempool is where the unconfirmed transactions are temporarily stored until they are put into the next block by miners
  2. The mempool backlog will increase in queued transactions
  3. Fees would rise
  1. Mempool is what holds all the transactions until they are added to the blocks by the miners.
  2. Longer transaction times, mempool will grow
  3. Transaction fees increases

1- What is mempool?
It is the space where nodes temporarily store unconfirmed transactions.

2-What happens if the miners cannot keep up with the rate of the new transaction?
Mining rates increase and mempool becomes more complete. Many transactions that do not pay a sufficient fee remain in the mempool

3-How does a growing mempool affect transaction fees?
Since it must process more transactions per block and this increases the weight of the same which at the same time increases the commissions (satoshis per Byte)

1 - What is the mempool?
Mempool is a data structure that each node has. Is a list of unconfirmed transactions (until a miner puts them on the blockchain). These tx’s should make sense to the node in the first place.

2 - What happens if the miners can’t keep up with the rate of the new transaction?
If they can’t keep up with the rate, the tx list (mempool) will grow and transactions will have a longer time until confirmation.

3 - How does a growing mempool effect transaction fees?
With more waiting transactions, the fees will get higher. The blocks are limited and the miners pick up the higher fee transactions. To get the tx confirmed, we will have to pay more.

  1. The mempool is a list of unconfirmed transactions (new transactions sent from wallets, validated by a node, but not yet included in a mined block and added to the blockchain). Each full node has its own mempool, to which it adds transactions after receiving and validating them. These transactions then remain in the mempool until they are included in a mined block and added to the blockchain. Miners select transactions from the mempool to include in their candidate blocks. Because blocks are limited in size, they select the transactions with the highest fee to size ratio (the highest Satochis per byte) in order to maximise their fee income per block mined.

  2. The total size of the mempool will continue to increase, and the transactions with the lowest fees will remain there unconfirmed.

  3. This in turn will result in an increase in average transaction fees. (On average, a higher fee will need to be paid to obtain the same transaction speed as before.)
