Networking

The networking category covers general topics ranging from TCP/IP and wire-level protocols to transport and security. If it’s packet related or happens within layers 2 - 4 of the OSI model, then this is likely the best place to discuss it.

P2P

From file sharing and content delivery to blockchain and Tor, the P2P category is the place to discuss these protocols and primitives. The term peer-to-peer (P2P) generally describes the architecture of a distributed system in which computational work is performed by a network of participating machines or processes called peers.

Blockchain

While the term itself can be considered somewhat provocative and ambiguous, blockchain generally refer to applications and protocol stacks that combine elements of distributed databases, cryptographic primitives, P2P networking, and usually some degree of financial instrumentation. If you want to argue about these high-level details, then please use this category.
