Block height is defined as the number of blocks in the chain between any given block and the very first block in the blockchain.
It is equivalent to a miner, which means that this block is obtained by this 'miner'. The Huobi here is the one of the famous Bitcoin mining pool in China.
Shows the specific time when this block was generated, and the block chain guarantees that each block is connected in sequence through a timestamp. The timestamp plays the role of a notary in the blockchain and is more credible than the traditional notarization system, because the information recorded on the blockchain cannot be modified by anyone in any way.
Previously, the block size of Bitcoin was within 1M. Since the introduction of 'Segregated Witness segwit', it has exceeded the set 1MB limit. Now, the concept of 'block size' has been replaced by 'block weight', and Bitcoin now supports blocks up to 4MB in weight.
The new block reward of the genesis block is 50 BTC, and it will be halved every four years. The first halving was 25 BTC on November 28, 2012, and the second at 16:46:13 on July 9, 2016. The second halving is 12.5 BTC, and the block height is 420,000 at this time. The third halving is 6.25 BTC on 2020, May 5th.
A total of 2665 transaction records are packaged in this block.
