Not exactly sure what library you're referring to. But yes, for nearly all blockchain papers and implementations I've seen the hashing is a very important part of technology. That's because the continuous hashing sort of "sets the data in stone" in that more hashes means more trustability in the chain.

As a data structure it seems to me that blockchaining is essentially creating chunks of data and arranging them in linked lists. Only difference (that I can see) is the hashing. Great post, really educational.
