I'm using the Geth Real-Time Event to get the new blocks via web-socket and there's a subscription called "newHeads" for that propose.

The thing is sometimes the socket returns a duplicate block with different content. Why?

I'm using "Simple Websocket Client" extension for the socket.

Look at the attached picture and check block number "0x9073d7"

enter image description here

This is a diff of the content of both blocks: https://www.diffchecker.com/2UUt8n6H


It was a fork that was later replaced by the main chain. Fork may be more than one block.
