Commented noui.cpp source code – Terminal interface to Bitcoin Core
We began our exploration of the Bitcoin Core source code from the Qt graphical user interface on down. We saw how the Qt signals and slots mechanism was used to handle signals from the underlying Bitcoin Core subsystems. Now we’ll take a look at the noui header and source to see how the user interface […]
C++ Bitcoin Blockchain to MySQL Database Interface
Crypto.BI Toolbox abstracts database access through a thin database access layer. Every database operation required to run the system has been made into a separate function in db/dao/CBDAODriver.h This traditional approach, used in many system architectures, allows us to switch storage solutions by creating new subclasses of CBDAODriver. For instance, if a graph database was […]
optional.h a pre-C++17 optional type in the Bitcoin source code
optional.h is a stub that’ll likely get removed from Bitcoin Core at a future date when C++ 17 gets formally adopted for the entire project. By reading the Bitcoin Core sources you can see that lots of sections could use C++ 17 idioms. Let’s keep in mind though that Bitcoin Core is high security software […]
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 which tools are in the Python subdir and which ones are in the C++ tree? Rule of thumb is: if it must use Bitcoin Core, then […]

Cardano is a 3rd generation cryptocurrency which is developed based on scientific methods, peer review and aims for formal verification and on-chain governance and compliance.
cardano-node is a full node implementation of the Cardano ADA Ouroboros protocol. It is written in the Haskell programming language and aims to obtain formal verification of correctness in the future.
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.
Linux is the world's most popular *NIX-like open source operating system. Most cryptocurrency full nodes run on Linux servers.
