Equihash 210,9 Algorithm Coins

Algorithm Description

The AION implementation of the Equihash algorithm uses parameters N = 210, K = 9, increasing the computational difficulty of the AION PoW as compared to popular existing Equihash implementations. One of the notable effects of changing to Equihash parameters is increased memory usage; at a minimum the amount of memory has been more than doubled from 144 MB to 300 MB based on some set of experimental parameters though the reference implementation uses over 500 MB.
