This hashing algorithm was entered in the SHA-3 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cryptographic algorithm competition, back at the start of 2012. It was one of the five finalists that would replace the SHA-3 hashing algorithm standard. It was created by Danilo Gligoroski, Vlastimil Klima, Svein Johan Knapskog, Mohamed El-Hadedy, Jørn Amundsen and Stig Frode Mjølsnes and is resistant to length-extension and multi-collision hacker attacks. The ultimate winner of the competition was Keccak.
Currently, we list 5 cryptocurrencies for the Blake algorithm.
