Forked from Bitcoin reference wallet 0.8.6, Blakecoin and Photon
BlakeBitcoin was inspired and requested by the Blake community and is a cryptocurrency designed to use the Blake 256 algorithm based on Blakecoin and Photon with AuxPow and is merge mined with them.
Blake-256(optimized) is faster than Scrypt, SHA-256D, Keccak, Groestl
The algorithm was written as a candidate for sha3, Based on round one candidate code from the sphlib 2.1 and reduced rounds to 8 aka blake256r8.
Current developers: BlueDragon747 and Cinnamon Carter
