Orphan Block

A block on the blockchain that would normally be considered valid, but it didn't become part of the blockchain ... usually because 2 miners completed the block almost at the same time and only one of them can be accepted into the main chain, so one has to be rejected.

Orphan blocks can also be created when hackers, with high enough hashing power, attempt to reverse transactions from the past.
