Hash: SHA256

Hi all!

I'm happy to announce that the Zcash "Sapling" MPC is nearly finished! I'd like to
thank the roughly 94 participants that contributed their time and effort to making
Zcash safer. I'd also like to thank Ian Munoz from the Zcash Company for
coordinating the ceremony.

Just as in the Powers of Tau, we must apply a random beacon to the result, like
a simulated participant. We'll be performing 2^42 iterations of SHA256 over the
block hash of Bitcoin block 534861, which is expected several hours from now.

The resulting value will be applied with the `beacon` tool in the `sapling-mpc`
repository to produce the final parameters. Here are the SHA256 hashes of the files
currently located in my `sapling-mpc` repository:
