The Stellar network is a decentralised peer-to-peer network of validator nodes. These nodes run the Stellar Core software that validates incoming transactions and applies them to the last ledger to form the next one. For reaching global consensus with other nodes Stellar Core runs the Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP). In contrast to proof-of-work-based blockchains (e.g., Bitcoin), SCP does not consume enormous amounts of energy. Instead, each validator node explicitly defines sets of other nodes that it needs to agree with. These sets are called quorum slices and when you look at the quorum slices of all validator nodes they define a global network of trust relationships between these nodes.
