Minimum block creation rate


#1

Is there any aproximate practical or architectural floor to the block creation rate ?

Having read “1.4.7 No Empty Blocks” at https://media.readthedocs.org/pdf/tendermint/v0.21.0/tendermint.pdf

And https://github.com/tendermint/tendermint/issues/1909

It apears it is possible to set a ceiling. Eg,

create_empty_blocks = true; create_empty_interval = 10s

Says create an empty block every 10s if nothing has changed. Is there an reason to assume (roughly) at least some number of seconds will elapse between blocks ?

Thanks
