What is a Genesis block?

Does anyone have any info about what a genesis block is, I was scrolling through my bound witness list and seen one, just curious what is the difference?

@Stoneer3 thanks for the question.

Genesis Block is the first block in an Origin Chain or a blockchain. It’s a technical term used more by developers and not something the average person like you or me really gets into.

Here’s a description on an industry site, follower by a reference to the term on one of our Developer resources in case you’d like to dig in further.


And THANKS for being a vocal part of the community @Stoneer3.
