SHOWER THOUGHT: What if we donated to create a Bitcoin Clock across the street from the famous NYC Debt Clock. But instead of counting up like the debt clock, the Bitcoin Clock would count down how many bitcoin remain to be mined. Roughly 4,196,563 as of today.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Does the mempool size equal roughly the unconfirmed transactions?

My bitcoind (v0.13.0) mempool size is currently 12k transactions as can be seen from:

tail -f ~/.bitcoin/debug.log

I find this number very surprising as I naively expected it to keep in line with the number of ‘Unmatched transaction’ as reported say by blockchain.info which currently shows 3k transactions.

What am I missing?
