    What is "closing" a block? Oct 8 '21 at 13:34
  • The "coinbase" transaction outputs (the mining reward) can be spent after 100 further blocks are mined on top. Is that what you are asking? Oct 8 '21 at 15:38
  • Was this development done on the testnet? If the network protocol port was 18333 (instead of 8333) then it was the testnet.
