A single byte appended to a transaction signature in the transaction input which describes how the transaction should be hashed in order to verify that signature. There are three types…

Hash160

SHA-256 hashed with RIPEMD-160. It is used to produce an address because it makes a smaller hash (20 bytes vs 32 bytes) than SHA-256, but still uses SHA-256 internally for…

Hashes per Second

Hashes per Second is a measure of how many hashes are produced by a computer in one second. One hash per second is quite small, so there are also denominations…

Hashing / Hash Function

Hashing or a Hash Function is a function which converts variable data into an alphanumeric code. Hashing is a cryptographic function that was created to allow for rapid retrieval of…
