A block is valid if it obeys all of the Protocol rules; otherwise it is invalid.

  • Clients will ignore invalid blocks when determining which chain is difficultywise-longest.
  • Mining clients will not build on top of invalid blocks.
  • Clients will not propagate invalid blocks (or invalid transactions).
