WorkNet Blockchain: Block Structure
A Block is a fundamental essence of the Blockchain. Blocks of the WorkNet blockchain contain user transactions, WUSD issuance transactions, validator signatures, commissions, the hash of the current and previous blocks, and other service information.
A block consists of a header, transactions, votes, and a list of evidence of violations (e.g., a double signature). The block’s header includes metadata about the block and the consensus, as well as data confirmation in the current block, the previous block, and the result returned by the application. All data is contained in a wrapper of a list of transactions, which are arbitrary byte arrays.
In the Work Net blockchain, blocks are generated approximately every 5.5 to 6 seconds. The block contains between 0 and 10,000 transactions of approximately 180 bytes each!
