Bitcoin tools is a Python library created for teaching and researching purposes. It’s main objective is twofold. First it aims to ease the understanding of Bitcoin transaction creation, by using well-documented and easy to understand python code. Second, it aims to provide a tool able to create custom

STATUS (STatistical Analysis Tool for Utxo Set) is an open source tool that provides an easy way to access, decode and analyze data from the Bitcoin’s
STATUS is coded in Python 2 and works for both the existing versions of Bitcoin Core’s
utxo set, that is, the first defined format (versions 0.8 - 0.14) and the recently defined one (version 0.15).
STATUS reads from a LevelDB folder (usually located under
.bitcoin/chainstate) and parses all the
utxo entries into a
json file. From the parsed file, STATUS allows you to perform two type of analysis, a
utxo based one, and a
transaction based one, by decoding all the parsed information from the chainstate.
The site provides graphs about Bitcoin network health for
testnet, such as transaction and block propagation times. Metrics are computed over
inventory messages received by our custom node, and provide
50th percentile and
85th percentile propagation times. Our node is an instance of A. Miller et al.
