Ethash is a proof-of-work mining algorithm carried out through the Ethereum community and Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies. Ethash is a successor of the preceding Ethereum algorithm known as Dagger-Hashimoto and is, in fact, an improve of it. However, modern-day improvement tiers of each algorithms made them too distinct to be viewed the equal algo. Ethash makes use of "Keccak-256" and "Keccak-512" hash algorithms which leads to a little bit of confusion due to the simultaneous improvement SHA-3 (Secure Hash Algorithm 3) cryptographic requirements alongside with Ethash development.
