I am trying to setup a stake pool, and I would really appreciate if anyone can explain how blocks are propagated throughout the cardano network.
I’ve heard that blocks are propagated in a “pull” manner. Correct me please if I have a wrong understanding.
If it is indeed using a pull-based propagation. This leads me to believe that my block producing node creates a block, and my relay nodes pull the latest block from the BP node.
Does this mean that other relay nodes must specify my relay node addresses in their topology file for my minted blocks to be pulled into their relay nodes?
Or, is it sufficient for my relay nodes to include other people’s relay nodes in my topology configuration?
Thanks for reading guys.
