Orphaned Block

A valid block which is discarded by the network after the blockchain has “forked” and then re-achieved consensus on a single blockchain again. This usually happens after two miners simultaneously solve a block, temporarily resulting in two valid blocks in the blockchain.

They can also be formed by an attacker attempting to reverse transactions, but this is rare as it requires immense hashing power.
