Scrape AVAX network peers using avax-python
P2P networking is the single most important technical functionality in all cryptocurrency implementations. The decentralized nature of Bitcoin, AVAX, Ethereum and others requires peers to talk to each other 24×7 in order to find out about transactions, new blocks, vertices (for DAG-based cryptos like AVAX) and so on. Even if you had the world’s most […]
Who is “Team Rocket”, the creators of the Avalanche protocol?
The Avalanche protocol family creators’ true identity is, perhaps, cryptocurrency’s most poorly kept secret. Or is it? Why would such a great idea’s true creators want to keep their names private? Which brings us to an earlier question. Why did Satoshi Nakamoto want to keep his own identity private? Wouldn’t Satoshi be held at the […]
avax-python Network Message Pipeline
Here’s a short overview of the avax-python Avalanche message pipeline. We’ve followed the reference Go implementation as closely as possible, but the Python code is still in very early development, so it’s lacking a lot of details. For example, right now the Python message pipeline is synchronous, whereas the Go implementation uses asynchronous channels and […]
avax-python Implementation Notes
Here you’ll find a few implementation notes about avax-python. This is mainly targeted at developers who wish to work on the Python source code. Python <- Go Golang object orientation is different from the Python OO approach. As a result, we had to make the choice of making the code more pythonic by using idioms […]
