Block Height

Block height refers to the sequential number assigned to a block within a blockchain, indicating its position in the chain relative to other blocks. The first block in a blockchain, known as the genesis block, has a block height of 0, while subsequent blocks are numbered sequentially based on their order of creation.

Block height serves as a crucial metric for tracking the progress and growth of a blockchain, providing a clear reference point for identifying specific blocks and transactions within the ledger. By monitoring block height, network participants can verify the chronological order of transactions, ensure the integrity of the blockchain, and assess the overall health and activity of the network. Block height is a fundamental concept in blockchain technology that plays a key role in maintaining the decentralized and transparent nature of distributed ledger systems.
