Is there a way to get a list of the latest transactions IDs? I know I can watch incoming transaction almost live on http://blockchain.info, but is there a way to download the last 10.000 transaction IDs?
Thanks for any hints!
Transactions have no intrinsic total order, which would be needed to have a chronological order. Two nodes might independently create transactions
If there were a total order it would be possible to completely avoid the double spending problem as it would immediately be clear which is the winning transaction between two conflicting ones: just pick the first.
Going back to your original question: there are two separate sets of transactions you have to consider.
bitcoind provides access to both these sets:
Transactions don't have an accurate timestamp so their chronological ordering comes at the granularity of which block the transaction was included in.
Access to the "raw transactions" is available using the Bitcoin.org client's API, however it is not necessarily trivial to do so.
