This library implements the BLS12_381 curve generated by Sean Bowe.
The name denotes that it is a Barreto–Lynn–Scott curve of embedding degree 12,
defined over a 381-bit (prime) field.
This curve was intended to replace the BN254 curve to provide a higher security
level without incurring a large performance overhead.
- Base field: q = 4002409555221667393417789825735904156556882819939007885332058136124031650490837864442687629129015664037894272559787
