Introducing support for NIST P-256 curves

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.

Our SDKs will continue to default to the secp256k1 curve, but please follow our Python SDK and NodeJS SDK guides to learn how to change your curve.

For more in-depth information about elliptic curves and its differences, please refer to our documentation on elliptic curves.
