Distributed

Something which is split into many separate pieces and often spread out over a large geographic area.

A network is said to be distributed if it has many different servers that work together to perform some task.

In cryptocurrencies mining is said to be distributed, and in fact it must be distributed to maintain the security of the network.

A distributed network is designed so that there is no central server or entity that others must connect to. Instead, network participants connect directly to each other. Bitcoin is a distributed network.
