Is it possible to do sha512 within a smart contract? Or, not?


1 Answer 1


Smart Pool has an implementation of sha3_512, https://github.com/SmartPool/contracts/blob/develop/contracts/Ethash.sol

If that could be turned into a stand-alone library, with a bit of documentation, then Ethereum would have on-state sha512.
