Forked from Bitcoin reference wallet 0.8.6
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.
Tweaks Removed some of the double hashing from the wallet as it is wasteful on compute, No changes to the ecdsa public/private function as that has proven to be secure so far on bitcoin.
