  • "Local transactions" are transactions whose sender is an address that is in the running instance of geth. For example in a mining pool they would be the payments to miners.
  • "Remote transactions" everything else.
  • Thank you for helping me. Transactions created with all private keys in "keystore" folder seems to be local transactions.
