Definition: multihash format


A three-element format for a hash. Known as type-length-value (TLV), the multihash format contains the code for the algorithm used to create the hash, its length and the hash itself. For example, 18 is the code for SHA2-256, and its length is 256. The hash value is the hash digest that was created. See hash and CID.
