Returns the number of uncles in a block from a block matching the given block number.

While this method is supported, the BSC network uses the Proof of Staked Authority ( PoSA ) consensus mechanism which doesn't involve 'Uncle' blocks.

Hence all results from eth_getUncleCountByBlockNumber will always return 0x0.

  1. BLOCK PARAMETER - An int block number in the form of hex, appended with 0x such as 0x6D7FE0, or pre-defined strings latest, earliest, pending.

Web3API's Composer accepts int block numbers, which will be auto-converted to a hex representation before being sent to a node.
