What is block size, and why is it important?

Block size is important for maximizing storage efficiency and transaction throughput in file systems and blockchain contexts. 

The amount of data processed or transferred in a single block within a computer system or storage device is referred to as the block size. It represents the basic unit of data storage and retrieval in the context of file systems and storage.

Moreover, a smaller block size facilitates more efficient utilization of storage capacity, reducing the likelihood of unused space within each block and eliminating wasted space. On the other hand, by lowering the overhead involved…
