[en] Under synchronous updating and allowing the agents to move in the lattice or underlying network, we find that the Sznajd model always reaches a consensus as a steady state, - because agent frustrations are removed due to their diffusion. Moreover, we succeed in obtaining the well-known phase transition of the traditional Sznajd model, which depends on the initial concentration of individuals following an opinion. How the time for reaching consensus depends on the system size, and on the topology have been exhaustively investigated. The analyzed topologies were: annealed and quenched dilution on a square lattice, as well as on a variant of the well-known Barabasi-Albert model, called triad network.
