Censorship resistance refers to a blockchain network’s ability to remain tamper-proof.

Understanding the Term

In blockchain networks, data is transparently distributed across a wide range of computers. The idea of censorship resistance is used to refer to the functional property of the network that ensures that all users equally follow the same regulations and that the regulations themselves cannot be altered for any personal gain.


The transparent and decentralized nature of blockchains makes them highly resistant to external modifications, thus making them resistant to censorship.
