P2P Networking

Table of Contents

A node will optimistically accept a block as unsafe with only a signature by the sequencer. To promote this block to a higher level of safety, it must be sure that the initiating messages exist for all executing messages. A future release may add specific p2p networking components to decrease the latency of this process. This could look like the sequencer signing and gossiping sets of executing messages to nodes of remote chains so that they know exactly what initiating messages to look for. An optimization on this would involve working with commitments to this data so that less data is sent around via p2p.
