It should be clear that, like all the other four SHA3 finalists, BLAKE and BLAKE2 are unlikely to be broken in a meaningful way—that is, in a way that allows an attacker to compromise the security of a system where they are used in a sound way. It is not excluded that one day someone will find, using sophisticated techniques, a “distinguisher” for the full permutation of BLAKE or of BLAKE2, but that would not affect its practical security.
