In this tutorial, we will provide an introduction to the concept of mempools (memory pools) used in blockchain and cryptocurrency networks for storing and managing unconfirmed transactions. This beginner-friendly guide will help you understand the role of mempools, their importance, and their basic operation in the context of blockchain networks.
By the end of this tutorial, you will have a solid understanding of mempools and their role in blockchain networks. You will learn about the process of transaction submission, propagation, and prioritization within the mempool, and how transaction fees affect the mempool’s operation. This knowledge can be a foundation for further exploration of blockchain concepts or for building blockchain-related projects that interact with mempools.
