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 […]
