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...
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 server by importing scripts/sql/mysql/cryptobitoolbox_bitcoin.sql into your MySQL server. Then you will need to configure Toolbox with the appropriate username, password, host and database so that Toolbox […]
Building the Haskell cardano-node on Linux
tl;dr; Jump straight to the build instructions The Details Looking forward to the Haskell mainnet, the next step in the Cardano project, I’ve begun exploring the cardano-node Haskell implementation. I find that exploring source code is much easier if you actually watch the program run for a while. So, the first thing a developer has […]
Getting started with AVAX Toolbox
tl;dr; Clone both avalancheJ and avax-toolbox into the same parent directory. cd to the avax-toolbox dir and run gradle build You can find a list of AVAX Toolbox programs and their gradle tasks below. AVAX Toolbox AVAX Toolbox is a set of programs I initially wrote to test features from the avalancheJ library. I’ve been […]
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 […]

Explore software programming topics. Cryptocurrencies, programming languages, tutorials and software development in general.
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.
Bitcoin is the world's first viable decentralized cryptocurrency. It was released on January 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto.
Go Programming Language
The Go Programming Language, or Golang, was developed at Google and first released to the public in 2007. Many respected names were behind the language, such as Ken Thompson and Rob Pike, both of whom were involved in the early development of C and UNIX at Bell Labs.
Haskell is a purely functional programming language which generates very secure and elegant programs. Haskell is used in the implementation of the Cardano ADA cryptocurrency.
Java is an object-oriented programming language introduced in the mid 1990's. Borrowing its syntax from C and C++, its main objective was to simplify memory management and make C++ programming faster, more fun and secure. Today it's one of the most widely adopted programming languages.
