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 […]
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 […]
Bitcoin Toolbox Home
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 3rd party data sources. It’s built of a combination of C++ libraries, Python integration and many other planned components that aim to make blockchain […]
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 […]

UNIX is an operating system brand and family. UNIX was invented at Bell Labs and meant to be a simpler version of MULTICS. Since UNIX is a registered trademark, Linux and *BSD systems cannot claim to be UNIX, though they are open source implementations of the underlying UNIX standard called POSIX.
