Default Do I need machineKey

MachineKey is used only by encryptation or by hashed passwords to?

I'm implementing aspnet_membership on my site, all with hashed passwords and i want to know if I add something like this on my web.config:

<machineKey validationKey="B967703017E1BBE28618FAE7223E1F719E3D58D17BD4C2EDDC6C4501E910C7E59800B5287C5D125D6B75B0ED98874A3E952D60BAF260D9D374A74C76CB741803"
              decryptionKey="5C1D8BD9DF3E1E0D5EF772FE80ABB4E16661D01132F23426" validation="SHA1"/>
