Gossip Protocol

Gossip Protocol, in the context of distributed computing and blockchain, is a communication process used for spreading information across a network in a decentralized and efficient manner. The protocol works similarly to how gossip spreads in a social network, where nodes in a blockchain network randomly share and sync information (like transaction data or block information) with a few other nodes, which then pass on the information to other nodes in a rapidly multiplying manner. This approach ensures fast and robust dissemination of information, making the network resilient to node failures and efficient in reaching
