Hi everyone,

I just want to ask for the sake of knowledge. As of writing time, the current reward for each block is 12.5 BTC. However, I see the actual newly generated coins are varied, mostly about 15-16 BTC on each block. Why is that?

The miner that created the block is entitled to 12.5 BTC plus all of the transaction fees for transactions in that block. So, the difference is transaction fees, payments from users to miners for the miners to include their transactions in blocks, confirming them.
