About Libbitcoin Database

Libbitcoin Database is a custom database build directly on the operating system's memory-mapped file system. All primary tables and indexes are built on in-memory hash tables, resulting in constant-time lookups. The database uses sequence locking to avoid blocking the writer. This is ideal for a high performance blockchain server as reads are significantly more frequent than writes and yet writes must proceed without delay. The libbitcoin-blockchain library uses the database as its blockchain store.



Using Homebrew

Installing from Formula
