When is the Transmission of new blocks happen between nodes of the network?

+1 vote

Let's say node A creates a new block, and sends it to it's peers, like in the image below.

enter image description here

B, C, and D verifies the block and they add it to their chains.

However, how will the peers of B, C, and D know about the new block? Let's say D has peers E and F. Will E and F need to wait until D creates a new block, and sends this block together with the block from A. Or, will D inform E and F about the new block from A once it has been verified?

When a block is mined, it is broadcasted to the network, the block passes peer to peer in the network.

Suppose there are 4 nodes in the network (A, B, C, D) When a block is received by a node say A, the new block is validated independently by every node on the network. So, the node validates the block and sends it further to its connected peers.

This ensures that only valid blocks are propagated on the network Nodes validates the block by checking it against a long list of criteria that must all be met Then, independent confirmation of the new blocks by each node and get together into a chain
