What is a ‘block’ in a blockchain?

The ‘block” in a blockchain refers to a block of transactions that have been broadcast to the network. The ‘chain’ refers to a string of these blocks. So, basically, as a new block of transactions is validated by the network, it is then attached to the end of the already existing chain of blocks. This chain of blocks is an ever-growing ledger of transactions that the network has validated.

And this is what we call a blockchain. Only one block can exist at a given chain height. There are several ways to add new blocks to an existing chain. These are often termed ‘proofs’, i.e., Proof of Work (PoW), Proof of Stake (PoS), and Proof of Authority (PoA). All these options involve cryptographic algorithms with varying degrees of complexity.
