A block is like a page of a record book. A block represents the ‘present’ and contains information about its past and future. Each time a block is completed it becomes part of the past and gives way to a new block in the blockchain. The completed block is a permanent record of transactions in the past and the new transactions are recorded in the current one.
As illustrated in the gadget above, the Latest Block shows the Last Block, the Hash rate, the Transactions and the Network Difficulty.
The Last Block that was created was 1439575
The Hash rate is the speed at which the hashes are created. In the above case the speed is 275,221.33 GH/s
Transactions shows the transfer of tokens between wallets
Network Difficulty shows how hard is it to find a hash that will be lower than target defined by system.
