I’m trying to get a better understanding on the architecture of Tor. Why does Tor connect to multiple Circuits at once? Whenever I’m connected through Whonix and track traffic through NYX, it says I’m connected sometimes 50+ circuits at once. Why would Tor need access to 50+ circuits when I’m only using it to access a single domain? Shouldn’t it only need the 1? Does it do this just that it can switch between relays faster in case one of them fails? Any explanation would be great!
