The sum count of blocks created that day that were included in the main (base) chain.
|BlkCnt||Blockchain / ledger||Blocks||Sum||Blocks||1 day|
Only mainchain (non-orphaned/uncles) blocks are counted.
For chains that use median time, the day is defined using it, otherwise, it’s defined using the block’s timestamps
Released in the 1.0 release of NDP
Block count is typically rather static, but can vary in blockchains which rely on a poisson process for finding new blocks. In proof-of-work chains with long difficulty adjustment windows and significant variance in block times, like Bitcoin, block count can diverge widely from the expected rate. This can happen during competitions for hashpower around the time of forks, or when a significant amount of hashpower is added or subtracted from the blockchain in a short period.
