No of addresses in one node

Hi Team,

How many addresses can we create on the same node before the performance will start degrading?

The main performance issue comes in coin selection, when choosing which previous transaction outputs to spend when creating a new transaction. As a rough guideline I would say up to 1000 addresses should continue performing reasonably.

ok Thanks. How much RAM will be required to support 1000 addresses?
There's no significant difference in RAM requirements unless the addresses have a large number of unspent transaction outputs each.
