Commented consensus/merkle.cpp Merkle root on Bitcoin Core Source Code
In this article we take a look at one of the most important components of block validation and overall blockchain integrity: the Merkle Root derivation process. While it’s one of the most critical components in all of Bitcoin Core, its concept and implementation are very simple and straightforward. The consensus/merkle.h header consists solely of 3 […]
Bitcoin: The mother of all cryptocurrencies
On January 12 2009, an individual or group using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, announced that the first Bitcoin transaction had taken place.

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 […]
