Uncle

Description

An uncle is the direct child of the k'th generation ancestor of a block B, where 2<=k<=7 but not a direct ancestor of B. Uncles are blockchain blocks found by a miner, when a different miner has already found another block for the corresponding place in the blockchain. They are also known as “stale blocks”. The parent of an uncle is an ancestor of the inserting block, located at the tip of the blockchain.

Usage

Instances of :Uncle can have the following properties:

PROPERTYTYPEDESCRIPTIONRANGE
From class :Uncle
:uncleBeneficiaryReward owl:DatatypeProperty The reward the beneficiary of an uncle receives if a block includes it. The reward amount depends how far up the Uncle is in the blockchain (the number of the block in which it is included minus the uncle's number). An uncle reward is only paid if the distance is smaller than 8. For a distance of 1 the reward is 7/8 of the block reward, for a distance of 7 the reward is 1/8 of the block reward. xsd:integer
From class :BlockConcept
:BlockDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all data properties that are specific to a block. These properties are usually functional because a block can only be associated with a single instance of them. owl:Thing
From class :EthOnConcept
:simpleDefinition owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept to a definition in Simple English, intended especially for non-technical users. owl:Thing
:suggestedStringRepresentation owl:AnnotationProperty This property relates an EthOn concept with a suggested string representation. It can be used to give the term a name, e.g. in program code. owl:Thing
From class owl:Thing
:AccountObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn account object properties owl:Thing
:BlockObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn block object properties owl:Thing
:EthOnAnnotationProperty owl:AnnotationProperty Superclass of all EthOn specific annotation properties. owl:Thing
:EthOnDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all data properties specific to EthOn. owl:Thing
:EthOnObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn object properties owl:Thing
:MessageObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn message object properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkDataProperty owl:DatatypeProperty Groups all EthOn network data properties. owl:Thing
:NetworkObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn network object properties. owl:Thing
:StateObjectProperty owl:ObjectProperty Groups all EthOn state object properties. owl:Thing
:createsPostMsgState owl:FunctionalProperty Relates a message to the global state of the system after all the message has been executed. owl:Thing
:hasAccountStorage owl:FunctionalProperty Relates an account to the Merkle Patricia tree that encodes its storage contents at a certain account state. This property is Functional because an account state can have only one instance of account storage and inverse functional because an account storage can have only one associated account state. :AccountStorage
:hasTransition owl:ObjectProperty Relates a state to a transition (i.e. a message) that creates a new state. owl:Thing
:partOf owl:ObjectProperty This is a general relation to express part of relationships. The classic study of parts and wholes, mereology, has three axioms: 1. the part-of relation is Transitive - "parts of parts are parts of the whole" - If A is part of B and B is part of C, then A is part of C Reflexive - "Everything is part of itself" - A is part of A Antisymmetric - "Nothing is a part of its parts" - if A is part of B and A != B then B is not part of A. owl:Thing
