> Block-height in Nakamoto #3943

Recently, there was discussion in the Stacks developer community about the impact on the ecosystem if the block height (confirmation speed) changes depending on the Nakamoto release.

The main points of discussion and the issues to monitor are as follows:

Due to the rapid increase in block times in the Nakamoto upgrade, BNS name renewals may expire sooner than expected, which may lead to unexpected behavior in BNS and other software that uses block heights. One suggestion is to continue increasing the block height at each lease term change, rather than at each block height change in a Clarity 1 or Clarity 2 contract.

This will bring it closer to the current block height rate. However, there are two problems with this proposal.

First, it can be confusing if block height has different meanings in different versions of Clarity.

Second, functions that use block height may not work as expected if they are passed a lease height instead of a block height.

We are assuming scenarios for major change elements such as Clarity 3 call function, Tenure-hight, and Block-height, and examining their impact on the project. We will continue to check for this issue in order to minimize the impact on the project as the update progresses.
