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 serve...
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 configur...

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...
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
