Exploring the Block Page

Note: Moonriver (MOVR) on Kusama is a companion network to Moonbeam and provides a permanently incentivized canary network. New code ships to Moonriver first, where it can be tested and verified under real economic conditions. Once proven, the same code ships to Moonbeam on Polkadot.

Polygon PoS (polygonscan.com) is an EVM-compatible environment optimized for high throughput and low transaction fees while Polygon zkEVM (zkevm.polygonscan.com) is an EVM-equivalent ZK rollup designed for security.

A block is a core concept that can be thought of as a page in a ledger. A block contains transaction data and the hash of the previous block that ensures immutability and security in the blockchain network.

Users can view more blocks detail by going to zkSync Era Explorer's View Blocks page.

  1. Network Utilization: The average percentage of gas limit used per block based on the blocks listed on the current page.
  2. Block Size (24H): The average block size for the past 24H.
  3. Block Rewards (24H): The total block reward for the past 24H.
  4. Burnt Fees: This represents the total sum of fees burned in ETH.
  5. Block: The block height, also known as a block number, indicates the position of a particular block in the blockchain.
  6. Age: Shows how long ago a block was built. Can be toggled with Date Time (UTC) to display the date and time at which the block was built.
  7. Txn: Total number of transactions in the block. Does not include contract internal transactions.
  8. Validator: Shows the validator that has successfully produced the block.
