Is there a reliable source where I can download the blockchain as a text file? Or perhaps is it included in my bitcoin-qt folder after it synchronizes with the network?


You can certainly request it incrementally from bitcoind/Bitcoin-Qt using the getblock and getblockhash RPCs, but there is no file maintained with the actual full list.

  • Ah, alright, I'll write a little program to fill up a list as a text file. Thanks for the answer. – Mercury May 12 '13 at 19:49
