Hash Hardware Uses
#1
Hey guys, I'm new to hashcat after discovering that I forgot my bitcoin passphrase. (lol) I've always been interested in cryptography so I'm using this as an excuse to jump in. Anyways, I was wondering what other types of hardware can be used with hashcat. I notice in the help file it mentions the usage of FPGA or a Math Co-processor. Has anyone ever tried using ASIC bitcoin mining hardware to streamline SHA-256 hashes here? Just curious. Thanks!
