Although other blockchains will have differences, the overall structures should be similar.

  1. Thanks for the infographic. Really useful. I did notice a downside of bitcoin, though – according to the output section of the graphic it will turn £60 into £50 🙂


  2. Thanks for this! I’ll note, however, that it says confirms instead of conforms in the Transaction Technical Data.
