With the advent of RandomX has Monero created an encryption scheme that use it for key derivation? Also how does/did chacha8 work is there a whitepaper one can read?

1 Answer 1


The wallet cache uses chacha20 for cache encryption. The KDF used is still the original Cryptonight (one round by default, overridable with --kdf-rounds).
