Bitcoin Blockchain MySQL Database Inserter Configuration
Toolbox tries to read configuration from $HOME/.cyptobi/cryptobi.conf If a config file is unavailable, then defaults will be applied. The order of precendence from highest to lowest is: Command line options override all others. Config file options override defaults. Program defaults. Environment Set CRYPTOBI_HOME environment variable to the directory where you cloned the Crypto.BI Toolbox from […]
optional.h a pre-C++17 optional type in the Bitcoin source code
optional.h is a stub that’ll likely get removed from Bitcoin Core at a future date when C++ 17 gets formally adopted for the entire project. By reading the Bitcoin Core sources you can see that lots of sections could use C++ 17 idioms. Let’s keep in mind though that Bitcoin Core is high security software […]
C++ Bitcoin Blockchain to MySQL Database Interface
Crypto.BI Toolbox abstracts database access through a thin database access layer. Every database operation required to run the system has been made into a separate function in db/dao/CBDAODriver.h This traditional approach, used in many system architectures, allows us to switch storage solutions by creating new subclasses of CBDAODriver. For instance, if a graph database was […]
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 […]

Bitcoin is the world's first viable decentralized cryptocurrency. It was released on January 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto.
The fundamental data structure which powers distributed ledger technology (DLT). Bitcoin implemented the first successful cryptocurrency using a blockchain for its ledger storage system.
C++ programming language - used to implement Bitcoin Core, as well as most first generation cryptocurrencies, high performance Bitcoin miners and other critical software.
Explore software programming topics. Cryptocurrencies, programming languages, tutorials and software development in general.
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.
RPC is an acronym for Remote Procedure Call, a software programming concept where programs call subroutines or services located in a remote location. In cryptocurrency context may also refer to RonPaulCoin (symbol RPC).
Base58 encoding is a user-friendly variation of the Base64 encoding, meant to avoid ambiguities between similar looking characters (e.g. 1 and l) and allow for ease of use. Base58 is the default encoding for Bitcoin addresses. Also used in several other cryptocurrencies.
