Bitcoin Blockchain SQL Schema for MySQL
This SQL schema was created for Crypto.BI Toolbox.
The same, or similar, SQL schema can be used by anyone exploring Bitcoin with the help of a MySQL RDBMS. Although we didn't ...
Bitcoin Blockchain to MySQL Insertion Tool
Crypto.BI Toolbox comes with a raw .dat block file to MySQL insertion tool called blocks_inserter.
To use it, first you'll need to generate the MySQL schema on your local serve...
Bitcoin Blockchain to MySQL ETL Tool
Crypto.BI Toolbox comes with an ETL tool that allows you to extract data from the block DAT files and import the blockchain into MySQL.
If you got the blocks directory configur...
Bitcoin Toolbox Home
Crypto.BI Toolbox is a set of tools for local blockchain exploration. It uses data from the raw Bitcoin block data files and does not require a network connection, API's and other...
Python Bitcoin blockchain analysis tools
Under the python/ subdirectory at the root of the Toolbox distribution you'll find the ... you guessed it ... Python implementation of blockchain tools.
So, how do you know whi...

Commented noui.cpp source code – Terminal interface to Bitcoin Core
We began our exploration of the Bitcoin Core source code from the Qt graphical user interface on down. We saw how the Qt signals and slots mechanism was used to handle signals from the underlying Bitcoin Core subsystems. Now we’ll take a look at the noui header and source to see how the user interface […]
ELI5 PSBT – Partially Signed Bitcoin Transactions
Trustless operation is one of the key concepts behind cryptocurrencies. The idea is that you should not have to personally meet, or trust your peers, in order to perform successful transactions. Experienced crypto users may take this concept for granted, but come to think of it – every real world transaction before cryptocurrencies came about […]
init.cpp Bitcoin Core startup source code
This is our first exploration of Bitcoin-specific code in this series of articles. Until now we’ve looked at how the Qt system was set up to run the GUI and Bitcoin services in separate threads and how those threads interconnected using Qt signals and slots. The BitcoinCore class in qt/bitcoin.cpp is the glue that ties […]
qt/bitcoin.h in Qt Bitcoin Core source code
qt/bitcoin.h pulls the config/bitcoin-config.h definitions that were generated by the configure script during the build process. This header also contains the Qt Q_OBJECT BitcoinCore class which handles 3 signals and provides 2 slots. (If you’re not familiar with Qt, please go here for an intro to slots and signals or here for an explanation about […]
Concepts In This Page
The fundamental data structure which powers distributed ledger technology (DLT). Bitcoin implemented the first successful cryptocurrency using a blockchain for its ledger storage system.
Crypto.bi Toolbox is a set of tools we use to read the Bitcoin blockchain to extract useful data from it.
ETL is an acronym for Extract Transform Load, a data loading procedure where information from one source is processed to be loaded on a new database.
MySQL is one of the most popular open source relational database management systems available.
Explore software programming topics. Cryptocurrencies, programming languages, tutorials and software development in general.
SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It's popularly used for database queries on the most popular RDBMS. Some variations of SQL, such as eSQL are used in more complex applications.
Articles related to Bitcoin programming, payment systems, APIs and related topics.
C++ programming language - used to implement Bitcoin Core, as well as most first generation cryptocurrencies, high performance Bitcoin miners and other critical software.
Source code is the machine logic implemented in a programming language. Fortunately, the most popular cryptocurrencies are open source, allowing us to study their source code.
Articles related to the analysis of blockchain records. Transactions, blocks, addresses among other data objects are of interest in this type of analysis.
