# Protocol Design - Blocks¶

Part of work in progress Living Whitepaper

This page is part of the Living Whitepaper revisions currently underway to replace the original static whitepaper. These efforts include the Protocol Design and Node Implementation sections of the docs, which will cover and expand on details and topics covered in the original whitepaper.

See the bottom of the page for related whitepaper sections and other related details. Some of the sections and headers on this page may be in draft form or just suggestions/framework for later consideration. If you are interested in helping with revisions please connect with us on the #documentation channel on our Discord server.

Transaction vs. block

The word transaction should be used in the context of a fully completed, 2-part protocol-level transaction, otherwise block should be used.

Details on legacy blocks are not necessary as they will only lead to confusion.
