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...

bitcoind.cpp – Commented Bitcoin source code
As mentioned in the Bitcoin-Qt commented source code post, there are several approaches one can take to step into the Bitcoin source in approximately the same order as it runs. For instance, tests are a great source of tiny example programs. Then there’s the ubiquitous Bitcoin-Qt client and, of course, bitcoind. All are good options […]
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 server by importing scripts/sql/mysql/cryptobitoolbox_bitcoin.sql into your MySQL server. Then you will need to configure Toolbox with the appropriate username, password, host and database so that Toolbox […]
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 configuration set up correctly, then you can run the ETL tool. Go to the Crypto.BI Toolbox installation directory and run: $ ./toolbox/db/blocks_to_sql > <output_file.sql> This […]
qt/bitcoin.cpp – Commented Bitcoin source code
qt/bitcoin.cpp is where Bitcoin Core initialization leads us next. main.cpp, the Bitcoin Qt application entry point, is basically just a stub that calls GuiMain() at qt/bitcoin.cpp So, by sticking to our strategy, I’ll step into the call stack which now has GuiMain() at the top. GuiMain GuiMain gets the GUI set up, connects Qt signals/slots, […]
