ELI5 Cardano Staking & Basic FAQ
In this article we look at the very basics of Cardano staking.
If you've got any experience whatsoever with other Proof of Stake coins, then you probably don't need to read th...

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 […]
Building Bitcoin Toolbox MySQL Blockchain Inserter from source
Here you’ll find instructions on how to build Bitcoin Toolbox from source code. Build Requirements Bitcoin Core >= 0.18.99 Boost Libraries >= 1.71.0 CMake >= 3.5 g++ >= 9.2 Boost Libraries Build or download a binary distribution of Boost Libraries. Take note of the root Boost directory (where boost/ is found). We’ll call this directory […]
256 Bit Integer commented uint256.cpp from Bitcoin Core source code
If you’ve developed systems in C or C++ before then you’re probably familiar with the stdint.h (cstdint for C++) typedefs. Since there’a lot of variation between platforms, stdint.h standardizes integer type names in an intuitive way. A uint8_t is an 8-bit unsigned integer and a uint64_t is a 64 bit unsigned integer. What you won’t […]
ELI5 Proof of Stake (PoS) – How does PoS work?
In the cryptocurrency universe, Proof of Stake (PoS) is one of the most popular alternatives to the Proof of Work (PoW) family of consensus mechanisms. While PoW systems invest large amounts of energy to make sure transactions are legit, PoS does not require mining hardware. Proof of Stake “miners” (stakers) must lock a financial stake […]
Concepts In This Page
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.
