Currency Root :: Library :: Glossary :: Genesis block

The "genesis block" is the very first block of a cryptographic currency's blockchain.  This block is usually numbered as 0, although some designs have been known to begin counting their blocks from number 1.

The first block typically needs to be hard-coded into the blockchain to support the commencement of mining operations.
