Improved transaction state tracking

  • Settled: A transaction received over the P2P network which is unconfirmed and in the mempool.
  • Cleared: A transaction received over the P2P network which is verified as being in a block. We attach the merkle proof to the transaction, as part of the verification/clearing process.
  • Received: A transaction received from another party which is unknown to the P2P network.
  • Signed: A transaction you have not sent or given to anyone else, but are with-holding and are considering the inputs it uses frozen.
  • Dispatched: A transaction you have given to someone else, and are considering the inputs it uses frozen.
