"Shakti k also has primitives for blockchain operations."

That's... Interesting. I couldn't find any further mentions of "blockchain operations" in the reference. What do they mean, exactly? Since k is traditionally concerned with financial markets, I might guess that they're offering deeply-integrated ways to parse transactions, check the number of confirmations, query the current exchange rate, etc.?

It has built in RSA key stuff, common hash algorithms, and the ability to encode/decode Bitcoin addresses. Perhaps other stuff too[1].
