Cryptocurrency programming languages you should learn
Many different computer programming languages are employed in cryptocurrency programming. In this article, we take a look at cryptocurrency projects and the languages they employ. We briefly discuss each language while highlighting their main characteristics, learning difficulty and how they are deployed in different crypto software projects. Haskell Haskell is the world’s only widely adopted […]
qt/bitcoin.h in Qt Bitcoin Core source code
qt/bitcoin.h pulls the config/bitcoin-config.h definitions that were generated by the configure script during the build process. This header also contains the Qt Q_OBJECT BitcoinCore class which handles 3 signals and provides 2 slots. (If you’re not familiar with Qt, please go here for an intro to slots and signals or here for an explanation about […]
Introduction to our commented Bitcoin source code section
Below you’ll find the main commented Bitcoin source code sections (sorted by section name and filename). Core amount.h – Defines the CAmount typedef, implements minimum and maximum valid amount range check. base58.cpp – The encoding function used for Bitcoin addresses. Base58 removes some potentially ambiguous characters from Base64 so Bitcoin addresses can be written down […]
init.cpp Bitcoin Core startup source code
This is our first exploration of Bitcoin-specific code in this series of articles. Until now we’ve looked at how the Qt system was set up to run the GUI and Bitcoin services in separate threads and how those threads interconnected using Qt signals and slots. The BitcoinCore class in qt/bitcoin.cpp is the glue that ties […]

In computer programming, a Uint256 is a 256 bit unsigned integer type. Since most mainstream computers can hold at most 64 to 128 bit numbers natively, 256 bit integers such as those used in Bitcoin must be especially crafted. Uint256 is the integer type used for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies' private and public keys.
Source code is the machine logic implemented in a programming language. Fortunately, the most popular cryptocurrencies are open source, allowing us to study their source code.
ETL is an acronym for Extract Transform Load, a data loading procedure where information from one source is processed to be loaded on a new database.
MySQL is one of the most popular open source relational database management systems available.
