TON Network is a Free TON blockchain network protocol. It includes several protocols that implement various networking:

  • ADNL;
  • overlay broadcast protocol — a simple broadcast protocol for overlay networks.  Transmits broadcast messages in the overlay network, stores copies of undelivered messages for a short time;
  • overlay protocol — a protocol that creates overlay networks within ADNL. Each member of the overlay network monitors several of its neighbors and stores dedicated ADNL connections (channels) for them. Thus, the broadcast of incoming messages requires minimal costs.
