Exploring the Block Details

Note: Moonriver (MOVR) on Kusama is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network. New code ships to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions. Once proven, the same code ships to Moonbeam on Polkadot.

A block is a core concept that can be thought of as a page in a ledger. A block contains transaction data and the hash of the previous block that ensures immutability and security in the blockchain network.

A. Block Number: Indicates the number of the produced block
B. Overview: The tab that displays the block main information.
C. Comments: The tab that displays the Disqus comment section of the block.

Overview Tab

  1. Block Height: The block height, also known as block number, which indicates the position of a particular block in the blockchain.
  2. Timestamp: Shows how long ago a block was built. Can be toggled with Date Time (UTC) to display the date and time at which the block was built.
  3. Transactions: The number of transactions in the block. Contract internal transactions refer to transactions that are created from contract executions and transact BNB.
  4. Validated By: Shows which validator received the reward for successfully building the block.
  5. Block Reward: The total block reward received by the validator for including the block in the blockchain.
  6. Difficulty: The amount of effort required to validate a new block. The difficulty algorithm may adjust according to time.
  7. Total Difficulty: Total difficulty of adding the block to the chain (measured in hashes) until this block.
  8. Size: Size of the block in bytes. It is determined by the block's gas limit.
  9. Gas Used: The total gas used in the block. The gas used percentage (out of total gas limit) is also included.
  10. Gas Limit: Total gas limit for the block.
  11. Burnt Fees: Fees burnt by this block.
  12. Extra Data: Any data that can be included by the validator in the block.
  13. BNB Price: Closing price of BNB on date of transaction.
  14. Hash: The hash of the block header of the current block.
  15. Parent Hash: The hash of the block from which this block was generated, also known as its parent block.
  16. Sha3Uncles: The mechanism which BscScan Javascript RLP encodes an empty string.
  17. StateRoot: The root of the state trie.
  18. Nonce: Block nonce is a value used during mining to demonstrate proof of work for a block.

  10. Gas Limit: Total gas limit for the block.
  11. Base Fee Per Gas: This represents the minimum gasUsed multiplier required for a tx to be included in a block.
  12. Burnt Fees: Fees burnt by this block.
  13. Extra Data: Any data that can be included by the validator in the block.
  14. Hash: The hash of the block header of the current block.
