BCH Developer Unwriter Launches Bitdb to Crawl Entire Bitcoin Cash Transaction Database
BCH Developer Unwriter Launches Bitdb That Crawls The Entire BCH Transaction Database
Earlier this week Unwriter launched Bitdb 2.0 which provides a global database platform that crawls the entire BCH transaction universe.
This is the 2nd iteration of Bitdb, a global NoSQL database backed by BCH and implemented with Mongo-DB. Unwriter’s latest Bitdb 2.0 allows the protocol to continuously synchronize itself with not only the BCH op-return database but now the autonomous database syncs with every bitcoin transaction.
Unwriter launched a program called Bitdb 1.0. The program basically works as an autonomous database that can crawl, index, and query the blockchain for every op-return transaction.
Essentially Bitdb takes the transaction and files it in a structured document and stores the end result in Mongo-DB. This allows anyone to utilize this data to help them build custom BCH-powered applications. So far a bunch of platforms have used Bitdb such as Memopay, Simpleledger.cash, Bookchain.cash, Matter.cash, and more.
“Things like smart contracts, bitcoin powered bots, autonomous programs, and many more creative applications no one has even imagined yet become significantly easier to build with Bitdb,” Unwriter states. Adding, “At the end of the day, everything is data, and all data fit into a database.”
Additionally, Unwriter reveals that all the Bitdb indexes can be connected so analysts and developers can build a transaction graph. “You could even combine a graph query with a script query,” the developer adds. Adding more icing to the cake, Unwriter says,
“A developer could build tokens that communicate with other tokens. A token that interoperates with other protocols, and an application protocol that talks to another application protocol.”
Notably, there have been many new applications built on the BCH network this year and Unwriter has created a large portion of platforms for quite some time. The developer hopes other BCH programmers use the latest 2.0 version of Bitdb if they are contemplating building a BCH application.
