Multichain generate transaction(coinbase transaction)

+2 votes

What's in the scriptPubKey of generate transaction? I looked through the raw data of generate transaction and found an output with arbitrary data with OP_RETURN

0000000000000000 //bitcoin value
71    //scriptPubKey size 113
6a    //OP_RETURN
4c6e    //push 110 bytes
00000000 //locktime

What does this data contain, and what is this data for?

This is where the miner signature is inserted, to prove who created the block. See this page for more information:
