Gas Limit

Definition of "Gas Limit"

The gas limit represents the maximum amount of gas you indicate you are willing to pay for a contract execution transaction. Gas limit is meant to protect users from getting their Ether depleted when trying to execute buggy or malicious contracts. A "block gas limit" represents the maximum cumulative gas used for all the transactions in a block.
