# [−][src]Constant curve25519_dalek::constants::ED25519_BASEPOINT_COMPRESSED

pub const ED25519_BASEPOINT_COMPRESSED: CompressedEdwardsY

The Ed25519 basepoint, in CompressedEdwardsY format.

This is the little-endian byte encoding of $$4/5 \pmod p$$, which is the $$y$$-coordinate of the Ed25519 basepoint.

The sign bit is 0 since the basepoint has $$x$$ chosen to be positive.
