Blake-256 (Decred)

    Blake-256 is a specific algorithmic hashing function (a mechanism for securely creating and uploading new blocks of data onto a blockchain) used by the Decred blockchain. Blake-256 employs the hash iterative framework (HAIFA), as well as the LAKE hash function’s local “wide-pipe” structure and other complex cryptographic hashing mechanisms that aid in the operation of the Decred protocol.
