Reducing Disk Storage with SQLite into BitCoin Architecture

Rodrigue Carlos Nana Mbinkeu, Bernabé Batchakui


For the past five years, the bitcoin network constantly experience a growth in its size as more communities turn to accept the currency for payment exchanges. Using Flat File and a LevelDB of indices to save blocks on disk, bitcoin users require more memory to save the history of transaction. We focus on issues of memory management and access time in the bitcoin protocol using SQLite DataBase. With all the advantages of SQLite DataBase, it would be efficient if it is fitted in this architecture. The SQLite comes with many flavors one of which is its ability to support sql queries. Thus, instead of parsing indices to search a block from the database, a more powerful query can do the job.
