    Hi

    Can someone please explain to me how cryptocurrencies could potentially replace our current economic paradigm without a fractional reserve lending aspect inherent within the algorithm???

    The SHA-256 hash algorithm used by Bitcoin. The SHA-256 hash algorithm takes input blocks of 512 bits (i.e. 64 bytes), combines the data cryptographically, and generates a 256-bit (32 byte) output. The SHA-256 algorithm consists of a relatively simple round repeated 64 times.

    Drr!
