Commented consensus/merkle.cpp Merkle root on Bitcoin Core Source Code
In this article we take a look at one of the most important components of block validation and overall blockchain integrity: the Merkle Root derivation process. While it’s one of the most critical components in all of Bitcoin Core, its concept and implementation are very simple and straightforward. The consensus/merkle.h header consists solely of 3 […]
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 […]
Commented amount.h on Bitcoin Core Source Code
amount.h is one of simplest source files in Bitcoin Core. In fact we can paste it in it entirety and discuss it afterwards: First the typedef int64_t CAmount typedef is defined. To explain this typedef, perhaps we should discuss how a Bitcoin is stored in order to understand why a 64 bit integer is enough […]
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 […]

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.
