How P2P Protocols Seek To Solve Bitcoin Mining Centralization



In a previous article, I wrote about the nature of decentralization versus centralization in Bitcoin mining and how to conceptualize that in a mostly qualitative sense. The article broke down the entire mining stack, from pool coordination all the way down to energy production to give a sense of the relationship between different layers of the mining stack and the potential to maximize decentralization, making the point that the further down the stack you go toward energy production, the more difficult and capital intensive it becomes to bring a meaningful level of decentralization to that layer.
