A block is where the most up-to-date record of transactions on the Bitcoin network is kept. Every 10 minutes, a new block is created and added to the existing previous blocks, which creates the blockchain.

This process of adding new blocks is known as mining where specialized equipment called ASICS integrates the transactions continuously into the blockchain.

Before and after the mining process, nodes check all previous blocks to ensure that no double spending has occurred.
