  • What you posted is 32 hexadecimal characters. So, that's 128 bits (each hexadecimal character represents 4 bits). The most common type of 128-bit hash is MD5. So, if it's a hash, it's most likely an MD5 hash.

It looks like a UUID.

See, in particular, the section from the linked article titled "Format," which states: "...the 16 octets of a UUID are represented as 32 hexadecimal (base-16) digits, displayed in five groups separated by hyphens, in the form 8-4-4-4-12 for a total of 36 characters (32 hexadecimal characters and 4 hyphens)."

The version digit is 4, so this is (supposed to be) a random value, not a hash.
