A computer networkcomputer network is considered peer-to-peer (P2P) if the independent computers (i.e. the "peers") are connected to each other directly via the internet without an intermediary to facilitate the connection. P2P networks are decentralized such that no single node/peer controls the system. This means that each computer (aka node) in a P2P network may act as both a server and a client, and computer resources such as files and data can be transferred between the participating computers directly.

A computer network is considered peer-to-peer (P2P) if the independent computers (i.e. the "peers") are connected to each other directly via the internet. P2P networks are decentralized such that no single node/peer controls the system. This means that each computer (aka node) in a P2P network may act as both a server and a client, and computer resources such as files and data can be transferred between the participating computers directly..

An economy is considered peer-to-peer if it has a decentralized model in which two individuals can exchange goods and services directly with each other, without a third-party to facilitate the exchange.
