Miners of a blockchain exchange information about blocks and transactions with one another via a peer-to-peer (P2P) network.  ...  The speed at which they learn of new blocks and transactions in the network determines the likelihood of forks in the chain, which in turn has implications for the efficiency as well as security of proofof-work  ...  Furthermore, we thank Marcel Mulder for contributing computational resources to the project.  ...
