In a P2P network, cryptography is used to keep the communication between peers secure and private. It involves the following steps: Key Exchange: Peers establish a shared secret key using asymmetric encryption algorithms. Encryption: Peers use the shared key to encrypt their messages, ensuring only the intended recipient can decrypt and read them. Data Integrity: Cryptographic hash functions are used to check if the data has been tampered with during transmission. Digital Signatures: Peers can sign their messages using their private keys, allowing the recipient to verify the sender's authenticity. Trust and Identity: Public key infrastructure (PKI) can be used to establish trust and ensure the identity of communicating parties. Overall, cryptography in P2P networks ensures secure and private communication, prevents tampering and impersonation, and allows peers to trust the information exchanged.

Consensus mechanisms becomes a soft fork because for the end users won't need to change anything on how they use the network, as the operation won't affect the end users only validators will notice the difference, and question 2.Blockchain technology is not specifically associated with any particular version of the network. Instead, it operates on existing network infrastructures, including the internet, to facilitate decentralized communication and data sharing.

ANTONY Mlelwa Instructor

A person can't upgrade but developers of the system and mainly afer the network agreement for the modification reaches the threshold vote number, also blockchain layers works with connection as they are all connected to bring about the network full functionality

1. Question number one will be explained in the next course (cryptocurrencies and CBDCs), same to question numner two about bitcoin, oracles network are networks which help to translate normal language to blockchain language, whitepaper will be explained in the next course, and how to read it, private blockchain can be transparent but to the allowed candidates only, only allowed people will be able to trace the private blockchain
