P2P Network

This section describes the Dash P2P network protocol (but it is not a specification). It does not describe the BIP70 payment protocol, the GetBlockTemplate mining protocol, or any network protocol never implemented in an official version of Dash Core.

All peer-to-peer communication occurs entirely over TCP.


Note: unless their description says otherwise, all multi-byte integers mentioned in this section are transmitted in little-endian order.
