Block Height

    In a blockchain network, block height is the number of blocks that came before a specific block. Every block has a distinct block height value, which is essentially a number that indicates the block’s chronological order in the blockchain. The genesis block (the very first block ever created on a blockchain network) has a block height of zero, indicating that no previous blocks were created. Block height is an important metric for determining the rate at which new blocks are added to a blockchain, as well as an identifier for each individual block in the network.
