Expand description

Run continuously, gossiping newly verified block::Hashes to peers.

Once the state has reached the chain tip, broadcast the block::Hashes of newly verified blocks to all ready peers.

Blocks are only gossiped if they are:

  • on the best chain, and
  • the most recent block verified since the last gossip.

In particular, if a lot of blocks are committed at the same time, gossips will be disabled or skipped until the state reaches the latest tip.
