It has happened in the past that certain blocks get 0 endorsement. Like this one for instance


What conditions lead to such 0 endorsement blocks ?

1 Answer 1


A baker must include endorsement operations when baking blocks. If the baker doesn't include any endorsements, than the result is a block with 0 endorsements.

The reasons a baker doesn't include any endorsements could be:

  1. Most likely, the baker's node doesn't receive the endorsement operations, likely due to poor connection/not many connected peers
  2. The baker purposefully excludes endorsements, although this is unlikely
  3. There are no endorsements, potentially because another block was being endorsed due to a chain split, but the current block has then become the dominant chain.
