1MB max block size on EOS mainnet. You can query with cleos get table eosio eosio global

Transactions that don't make it into the current block will be queued for subsequent blocks.

  • Average 1 transaction is about 1kb? So in 500ms can only process 1000 transactions? 1. if 10 000 transactions in 500 ms, will have 9000 transactions waiting for next block? 2. Blockchain eos can't handle more?
