Hi there,

this might be a fairly stupid question but I was not able to read this info out of the wiki (or I've looked in the wrong places).
From my understanding every transaction needs a new block to be included into. With this block the transaction is broadcasted through the network and thus verified.
At one certain time however (~20 years ahead) all blocks will be mined out. How are new transactions processed/verified then, if there is no new block to include them to?

Would be great if somebody could point me to the right directon!

Thanks!
