Summary

Ethash is the proof-of-work feature in blockchain currencies based in Ethereum. Using Keccak, a hash function ultimately standardized to SHA-3. Since version 1.0, Ethash has been designed to be ASIC-resistant via memory-hardness (harder to implement in special ASIC chips) and easily verifiable. It also uses a slightly modified version of earlier Dagger and Hashimoto hashes to remove computational overhead. Previously referred to as Dagger-Hashimoto, the Ethash function has evolved over time.
