Latency in computer networking refers to the amount of time it takes for a data packet to move between two specified points. When you input data into a system, the overall time it takes for the system to produce an output is known as the latency for that particular time period or interval.

The IO latency between the user and the computer and the network latency as data and information go from a computer to servers around the world are both examples of intrinsic slowness in computing. In the context of cryptocurrencies, latency can relate to two distinct intervals of time. A blockchain’s network latency is the first, while an exchange’s delay is the second.
The length of time it takes for a blockchain network to validate that a transaction has been accepted is known as Blockchain network latency. Exchange latency measures an exchange’s capacity to process and carry out substantial amounts of transactions in their order books.
