The commitment metric gives clients a standard measure of the network confirmation for the block. Clients can then use this information to derive their own measures of commitment.
There are three specific commitment statuses:
|Block on majority fork||X||X||X|
|Block contains target tx||X||X||X|
|66%+ stake voted on block||-||X||X|
|31+ confirmed blocks built atop block||-||-||X|
