Secp256k1 – from biovolt bitcoin archive

From Bitcoin Wiki: secp256k1 refers to the parameters of the ECDSA curve used in Bitcoin, and is defined in Standards for Efficient Cryptography (SEC) (Certicom Research, http://www.secg.org/sec2-v2.pdf). As excerpted from Standards: The elliptic curve domain parameters over Fp associated with a Koblitz curve secp256k1 are specified by the sextuple T = (p,a,b,G,n,h) where the finite field Fp is defined by: p = FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF […]
