An ACK message is a message intended to acknowledge a successful decryption of a Private Message.


It is encrypted by the sender and sent with the private message itself. Therefore sending a private message requires more POW than a simple Broadcast.


The packet itself is not acknowledged any further.


ACK Messages are not resent since they are not acknowledged themselves. If a private message is resent it is considered a completely new message, since POW is done again.
