Hello,

Does the blockchain/block distribution in bitcoin core work like in bittorrent?
More precisley: Does the downloading client start to upload to other clients even if the blockchain download from
the origin client isn't complete?

I think better asked here: https://bitcointalk.to/index.php?board=4.0.

Yes. Also, the blockchain is not downloaded from one client of course (for security and practical reasons).

Sorry that I aks again: Yes means in this case "yes it does upload meanwhile downloading"?

You can ask a node for a block even while that node is downloading.

Most nodes have (almost) the entire chain anyway, so it isn't that big a deal.  You are unlikely to connect to a node that has only just joined the network.
