SHA-256

Bitcoin found use in the SHA-256 Hashing Function for sending messages securely. SHA stands for Secure Hashing Algorithm.

SHA-256 utilises something called “asymmetric keys” or better known as Public and Private keys.

SHA-256 is very similar with its structure to other hashing algorithms like MD4, MD5 and SHA-1 as these are the predecessors of SHA-256.

Top Coins using SHA-256

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Bitcoincash (BCH)
  • Peercoin (PPC)
  • Ethereum Classic (ETC)
  • Monero (XMR)
