So I received one of the bitnodes and fired it up on the network.  What a neat little box.  Not being 100% savvy about how the bitcoin network handles traffic, I was surprised to see that my little node has already had some transactions that it relayed first according to blockchain.info.

How did my node receive a transaction first?  I've read about the broadcasting and such, but wondered if it had to do with proximity when finding peers to broadcast to or what?

Blockchain.info only displays who sends them a TX first. This only means that your node was connected to a node by bc.i and to another node that was not connect to bc.i, but had a TX they (bc.i) did not have. Its possible that your node was the nth in a longer line, bc.i however can not detect that.

e.g.: Origin Node -> A -> B -> C -> your node -> bc.i node

Im not really here, its just your imagination.

Thanks for the response. That makes sense.  Right now I've got 48 connections on that little box.  Very neat item.

Node that broadcasted transaction is either not connected to blockchain.info node or your node has much lower ping (latency).
