How can I download a single Bitcoin block?

Bitcoin Asked by seonguk park on October 24, 2021

I just started studying bitcoin.

I would like to be able to download a single block from the Bitcoin network.

I referred to the following:

But, it’s not the size of the block I know (like 1MB).

How can I get one?

One Answer

Yes, it's the whole block. The hex text is 2.5 MB. Hex has 50% efficiency, so the block is 1.25 MB.

Since SegWit, blocks can be larger than 1 MB. There's a 4 MB hard limit which is almost impossible to reach. (With the largest block to date being 2.4 MB, 4.8 MB in hex)
