Orphaned blocks detached or orphaned blocks are valid blocks which are not part of the main chain. These blocks get created when miners place a block on the blockchain at the same time. Also, an orphan block can get created by a hacker or attacker who is doing an attempt to reverse transactions. However, orphan block are much are common on low block time, low difficulty networks as it is more likely for many miners to find valid solutions and to submit them to the network in a narrow time frame leading to the acceptance of only a single valid block and the rejection of the others.

Orphan blocks are those blocks which are not accepted into the blockchain network due to a time lag in the acceptance of the block in question into the blockchain as compared to the other qualifying block. Orphan blocks are valid and verified blocks, but are rejected ones. They are also called detached blocks as they exist in isolation from the blockchain
