# The Network
The Anagolay network is a distributed, peer-to-peer network formed by Anagolay peers who participate as validators. Anagolay is built on top of the Substrate (opens new window) framework and it utilizes all of its features for governing, communication and block creation. More information on how Substrate works can be found here (opens new window).
# Anagolay nodes
Anagolay nodes or Anagolay clients are peers that sync the Anagolay blockchain and validate the messages in every block, which, once applied generate global state.
Since Anagolay Network is a substrate based, it inherits the same consensus rules and governing functionalities. If you are interested in reading about it head to official Substrate knowledgebase (opens new window).
