A mempool (short for "memory pool") is the queue of pending and unconfirmed transactions for a cryptocurrency network node. There is no one global mempool: every node on the network maintains its own mempool, so different nodes may hold different transactions in their mempools.
A mempool explorer is a tool that enables you to view real-time and historical information about a node's mempool, visualize its transactions, and search and view those transactions.
The mempool.space website invented the concept of visualizing a Bitcoin node's mempool as projected blocks. These blocks are the inspiration for our half-filled block logo.
Projected blocks are on the left of the dotted white line, and confirmed blocks are on the right.
