The mean time (in seconds) between all the blocks created that day.
|BlkIntMean||Blockchain / ledger||Blocks||Mean||Seconds||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
The absolute interval is used (if block n+1 has a timestamp lower than block n, we use the absolute value of the difference in timestamps, see examples).
If for a day, the blocks are:
The value of BlkIntMean would be (150 + 20 + 160 + 60) / 4 = 97.5 seconds
Released in the 1.0 release of NDP
Blockchains with shorter blocktime (and hence a larger sample size per day) will typically have less variance in mean block interval.
