With this update we are adding support to the
secp256r1 curve — also known as
NIST P-256 or
prime256v1. Relay already supports
secp256k1 (koblitz) curves, but now we’re providing our users with the choice so they can decide which curve they want to use.
For more in-depth information about elliptic curves and its differences, please refer to our documentation on elliptic curves.
