Stale Block

CoinGecko | 更新日: Mar 03, 2020
Peer-to-peer proof of work mining may sometimes result in more than 1 blocks being mined in the same height, often due to broadcast delays. When this occur, the network will infer the longest resulting chain as the truth, whereby the blocks within the shorter chain will be regarded as Stale Blocks.
