Orphan Transactions


This indicator shows the count of transactions that were initially verified and accepted by the network but were later not processed, often due to discrepancies in network synchronization or other network issues. Orphan transactions represent a subset of transactions that, for a period, were considered valid by part of the network but ultimately were not processed.

How can I use it?

A high number of orphan transactions may signal network unreliability or significant latency issues. This can help identify underlying problems that need to be addressed to ensure reliable transaction processing. Comparing the orphan transaction rate across different periods can provide insights into the bridge stability and efficiency. A lower rate or no existing orphan transactions is generally indicative of a more robust and reliable network.
