Block Structure


Block is the main entity in NEAR Protocol blockchain. Blocks are produced in NEAR Protocol every second.

It contains the info:

  • about the Block producer (AccountId of the validator responsible for particular Block production)
  • Block Header
  • List of Chunk Headers



“`rust links=1
pub struct BlockView {
pub author: AccountId,
pub header: BlockHeaderView,
pub chunks: Vec,

“`ts links=1
export interface Block {
author: string;
header: BlockHeader;
chunks: ChunkHeader[];


BlockHeaderView contains main info about the block.

pub struct BlockHeaderView {
pub height: BlockHeight,
pub prev_height: Option,
pub epoch_id: CryptoHash,
pub next_epoch_id: CryptoHash,
