Considering following definition, can we say that bitcoin is a mesh network?

A mesh network uses a network topology in which each node (called a mesh node) relays data for the network. All nodes cooperate in the distribution of data in the network. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesh_networking


It broadcasts blocks and transactions using a logical mesh network, but that shouldn't be confused with physical mesh network proposals.

  • What I mean is I think we can consider bitcoin network to have a mesh topology. – Nur Jan 8 '15 at 6:44
  • @Nur Okay... is that a question? – Nick ODell Jan 8 '15 at 6:44
  • The question was above – Nur Jan 8 '15 at 6:45

Bitcoin is meant to be a redundant and cooperative network. Everyone feeds everyone data. So in a way, sure.
