Uncle Block (Cryptocurrency)

Uncle blocks are the Ethereum equivalent of Bitcoin’s orphan block, with a few differences. Like orphan blocks, which are associated with Bitcoin, uncle blocks are commonly associated with Ethereum-based blockchains. Similar to Bitcoin’s orphan blocks, uncle blocks are valid and are mined in a genuine manner, but get rejected from the main blockchain due to the working mechanism of the blockchain.
