I would like to know how the software downloads the blockchain. If the bytes write throught the socket and wait until it's written. And If the software asks 16 blocks to each peer in which you're connected to ?

Best whiches.

  • Hi, I read this topic thanks to you ^^. Tell me if I got wrong but, does the software asks 1 peer only => 16 blocks or does the software share the ask of 16 blocks to 10 peers. I don't fully understand this part of the topic. Thank you to had answer me.

It will request 16 blocks from each peer it has a connection to. The bytes are written normally. The blocks download is doing via get_blocks et answer blocks message. Thanks for the Murch’s answer.
