Details

  • Uncle Blocks (also known as Ommer Blocks) are an intrinsic feature of Ethereum.
  • Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum does not discard blocks in situations where multiple miners find a valid block of the same height.
  • Instead, Ethereum rewards secondary miners with so-called Uncle Blocks, which effectively represent a share of the work, as well as the reward, of processing transactions.
  • This metric measures the proportion of rewards that resulted from Uncle Blocks.

Asset-Specific Details

  • This metric is only relevant to Ethereum and its replicas.
