If I made a personal blockchain using https://geth.ethereum.org/, how many transactions can one block handle?

1 Answer 1


This is a tricky question.

It depends on your blockchain's blockGaslimit && transaction's gasCost

For example, if your blockGasLimit is 6_000_000 gas and the transaction in question is complex and its gasCost is 1_000_000 gas. You can stack only 6 such transactions in each block minted.

  • means max number of transaction is math.floor( blockGasLimit / gasCost )

    Yes, if the cost of all the transactions is always the same. What is not often the case. I think this link will help you better grasp the subject shardeum.org/blog/what-is-a-gas-limit
