Suppose one day the submarine optical fiber has broken which connected Asia(A network) and North America(B network).


Code:
A-1    B-1
  |       |
A-A---B-B
  |       |
A-3    B-3

I have a wallet(25000BTC) on node A1, I duplicate the wallet data to node B1.
The A1,B1,AA,BB,A3,B3 nodes only connect by AA and BB. now the connection of AA and BB is broken.
Then spending the 25000BTC both node A1 and B1.

How to avoid this happening?
