Hyperledger peers neither mine the block nor share it among themselves.

Let me tell you how it works:

  1. A transaction is send to one trusted VP.
  2. The VP broadcasts the transaction to all other VPs.
  3. All VPs reach consensus (using PBFT algorithm) on the order to follow to execute the transactions.
  4. All VPs execute the transactions "on their own" following the total order and build a block (calculating hashes mainly) with the executed transactions.
Since the transaction execution is deterministic and the number of transactions in a block remains the same, all the blocks will be the same as well.
