Bitcoin Attacks that are Definitely not a problem - Discussion

Does TOR help protect transactions and or just nodes?

Sybil Attacks…I run a full Bitcoin node. I can see that I am connected to 8 other nodes and that these nodes are geographically distributed throughout the world and not the ones that are closest to me. So am I right to assume that Bitcoin connects nodes in a random manner so as to eliminate the possibility of a Sybil attack?


Great question! I’d like to know the answer to this as well.
