We present Elevator, a novel algorithm for hub sampling in peer-to-peer networks, enabling the construction of overlays with a
topology between a random graph and a star network, and networks that have both hubs and are resilient to failures. Our approach emerges
from principles of preferential attachment, forming hubs spontaneously, offering an innovative solution for decentralized networks that can benefit
use cases requiring a network with both low diameter and resilience to failures.
