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 […]
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.
