How can i calculate the average blocks per a day by just data from rpc commands. I would also like to calculate the average time per a block this way as well any idea ?

Am having trouble finding fast ways to do this or a way at all. If you want to do this there must be a good way. And for coins that aren't just btc


I redid the post here as i did it in mining by accident

possible solutions since i don't have a way to check it:
use getblockhash[1] command which will give you the has of the block header you want. you already know there are about 144 ( 24 hr * 60 min * 1 block /10 min) per day so get 144 block headers at first and then if you figured there were more within 24 hour then get 145th, 146th ,...

how you figure it out?
in each block header there is a field called block time[2] which is a unix timestamp which is set by the miner. it is most probably an accurate number but it  doesn't have to. use this timestamp to figure out how many blocks were mined in a certain time frame.
