Peercoin blockchain parser

Description

This program can parse the blockchain contained in a file and export some of its data to a text file, a SQL script or a database. It can also create a database using the RPC of a Peercoin daemon as source of data instead of a blockchain file.

It is written in Common Lisp.

Dependencies

Installation

  • Install quicklisp to manage the packages.
  • Install the dependencies: (ql:quickload '("cl-json" "cl-dbi" "drakma" "flexi-streams" "ironclad" "local-time"))
  • Copy the source code of the peercoin blockchain parser where you want it to be.
  • Tell your Common Lisp implementation where to find the sources:
    • (push "directory-where-the-sources-are/" asdf:*central-registry*)
    • If you don't want to type this line every time, you can add it to the initialization file (e.g.: .sbclrc, .ccl-init.lisp, .eclrc).

Configuration

Edit the configuration file (config.lisp) to indicate where to find the blockchain file, the Peercoin daemon and the database server.

Usage

First, load the parser package:

(require 'peercoin-blockchain-parser)
(in-package peercoin-blockchain-parser)

To export the data from the blockchain to a SQL script:

(sql-make-script-from-blockchain "peercoin-blockchain.sql")

To export the data from the blockchain to a text file:

(txt-make-file-from-blockchain "peercoin-blockchain.txt")

To export raw blocks from the blockchain to a file:

(raw-extract-blocks-from-blockchain '("hash1" "hash2" ...) "blocks.dat")

To create a database from scratch using a running Peercoin daemon:

(rdbms-initialize-database)
(rdbms-update-database-from-rpc)

To update a database using a running Peercoin daemon:

(rdbms-update-database-from-rpc)

To update a database using the blockchain:

(rdbms-update-database-from-blockchain)

To get the balance of an address:

(rdbms-get-balance "PWFNV1Cvq7nQBRyRueuYzwmDNXUGpgNkBC")

To get the transaction history of an address:

(rdbms-get-history "PWFNV1Cvq7nQBRyRueuYzwmDNXUGpgNkBC")

To get the list of the 20 richest addresses:

(rdbms-get-rich-addresses 20)

To get the list of the unspent transactions of an address:

(rdbms-get-unspent-transactions "PWFNV1Cvq7nQBRyRueuYzwmDNXUGpgNkBC")

To get the list of the addresses with a positive balance at block 12345:

(rdbms-get-balances-at-block 12345)
