Bitcoin Block

« Back to Glossary Index

A Bitcoin block is one “link” in the blockchain. One block contains a group of Bitcoin transactions that have been confirmed. When Bitcoin miners ‘mine’ these blocks they calculate through computer algorithms which when put in the blockchain, confirms transactions. In turn, miners receive transaction fees and newly created Bitcoins for confirming transactions.
