Decentralized network

A decentralized network uses peer-to-peer connections rather than a single-point network access. It connects to different points without having to go through a mandatory point. It is, therefore, much harder for a central authority to monitor and regulate it.

Blockchain (the underlying technology of Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies supported by Trezor) is a decentralized network.
