What is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Model?

A P2P model is a decentralized network where individuals or businesses directly transact or cooperate with each other, with little to no intermediation by third parties. These models have gained popularity in recent years, as they offer increased efficiency, flexibility, and control for users. P2P networks can be used for various applications, including file-sharing, lending, and online marketplaces.

  • The sharing economy continues to expand, with P2P marketplaces for goods and services becoming increasingly popular.
  • Blockchain technology is playing a crucial role in the development of secure and transparent P2P networks.
