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 […]
Why the “fast” Ethereum sync is so slow
Why is the geth sync so slow? I keep hearing this question again and again from Ethereum node operators. Why is it still so difficult to fully sync an Ethereum full node? Slow Geth Users have been complaining forever now about the notoriously slow geth sync on the official Ethereum wallet. Some even question the […]
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 […]
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 […]
