How does ecrecover() in solidity work? Looking at ethervm.io there doesn't seem to be an opcode for ecrecover? To what bytes is a ecrecover() call compiled?

    There's a precompiled contract for that; see here. – goodvibration Oct 17 at 15:35
  • Ah ok, ethereum has so many free bytes that they could use to build in those opcodes, why don't they? – MrClottom Oct 17 at 15:49
