This question have just been published in StackOverflow as well, but you might be able to guide me on a better direction:
I'm looking for the most valid path to download and keep downloading every single smart contract on the ethereum network.
As I've been programming for a few years, I've been thinking about using cURL to make this. But I'm aware this is probably very outdated as it should be possible to be done somehow using the blockchain...
I'm willing to store all the contracts in a traditional MySQL database, in order to run multiple security audits on them. Is there any other database engine compatible with PHP that you would recommend to store them?
How would you approach this?
