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 (PoW) blockchains. Despite the importance of information propagation delays in a blockchain's peer-to-peer network, little is known about them. The last knowndoi:10.1145/3477314.3507003 fatcat:zy3jf3oqanashjccipsumgnc2i
