AE Block Hash Algorithm

Hi,

Would like just to know what the Block Hash Algorithm does AE use? i.e. The algorithm used to generate the hash for its blocks particularly the Genesis Block

Aeternity uses the BLAKE2B hashing algorithm

thanks a lot!

Hi, just wanted to also ask where I could look for the documentations where the Blake2b hash algorithm is being used for the generation of block hashes?

Found this: protocol/README.md at master · aeternity/protocol · GitHub

But I believe it refers to the consensus algorithm or the transaction hashes and not the block generation hashes?
