Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Network

    Peer-to-peer (P2P) networking is a type of distributed computing architecture where each node in the network typically supports both server and client capabilities simultaneously. In a P2P network, each computer acts as an individual peer, dividing tasks and workloads across the P2P system. The peers in a P2P network share digital data of any kind, including cryptocurrencies. A “node” is a peer within a P2P network, and the collective work of these nodes maintains the P2P network. Each node in this context acts as both client and server in relation to other nodes, meaning all peers play the same roles in receiving and broadcasting digital data.
