Cryptocurrencies have attracted some of the world’s most talented software developers. As a result, very innovative and advanced software applications have been created in the crypto scene, including smart contract programming languages which themselves make decentralized software development possible.
In this section we take a look at cryptos from the software development perspective.
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 test this SQL with other RDBMS’, it should be fully compatible with MariaDB and any other MySQL-derived system. How the data is inserted/retrieved to/from […]
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 3rd party data sources. It’s built of a combination of C++ libraries, Python integration and many other planned components that aim to make blockchain […]
Building the Haskell cardano-node on Linux
tl;dr; Jump straight to the build instructions The Details Looking forward to the Haskell mainnet, the next step in the Cardano project, I’ve begun exploring the cardano-node Haskell implementation. I find that exploring source code is much easier if you actually watch the program run for a while. So, the first thing a developer has […]
Getting started with AVAX Toolbox
tl;dr; Clone both avalancheJ and avax-toolbox into the same parent directory. cd to the avax-toolbox dir and run gradle build You can find a list of AVAX Toolbox programs and their gradle tasks below. AVAX Toolbox AVAX Toolbox is a set of programs I initially wrote to test features from the avalancheJ library. I’ve been […]

C++ programming language - used to implement Bitcoin Core, as well as most first generation cryptocurrencies, high performance Bitcoin miners and other critical software.
Go Programming Language
The Go Programming Language, or Golang, was developed at Google and first released to the public in 2007. Many respected names were behind the language, such as Ken Thompson and Rob Pike, both of whom were involved in the early development of C and UNIX at Bell Labs.
Haskell is a purely functional programming language which generates very secure and elegant programs. Haskell is used in the implementation of the Cardano ADA cryptocurrency.
Java is an object-oriented programming language introduced in the mid 1990's. Borrowing its syntax from C and C++, its main objective was to simplify memory management and make C++ programming faster, more fun and secure. Today it's one of the most widely adopted programming languages.

One of our favorite topics! Programming Languages enable us to transform ideas into computer logic, creating neat solutions for customers.
Rust is a general purpose programming language developed by Mozilla. Rust aims to be a replacement for systems languages such as C and C++. It's generally very fast and helps avoid memory management issues which have long plagued similar low level languages.
Solidity is a smart contract programming language. It gained widespread adoption via the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
Git is a popular control version system which helps teams manage changes to source code. Git is used for the collective development of most cryptocurrencies.
