Since NFTs are being discussed a lot lately, I got curious about HOMERPEPE and how it’s actually constructed.
Here’s the link to the token on xchain.io: https://xchain.io/asset/HOMERPEPE
I followed the link to the transaction that issued this token, and the actual transaction details are here: https://blockstream.info/tx/3f0053d19b7feb5731a3be83b16212516b934d3da456d5b47d97c51ab4b24f4c?expand
And the transaction includes this data:
Type OP_RETURN scriptPubKey (asm) OP_RETURN OP_PUSHBYTES_51 37ca2a1f7998dd559649c42c6ecc8bb866c3523420199a2c04d0dbb3ad47e4c5f4b645be83beb0650046bd2179470cc91f9a5e scriptPubKey (hex) 6a3337ca2a1f7998dd559649c42c6ecc8bb866c3523420199a2c04d0dbb3ad47e4c5f4b645be83beb0650046bd2179470cc91f9a5e OP_RETURN data (omitted*)
I gather that OP_RETURN is used to basically publish a message on the blockchain, and OP_PUSHBYTES specifies that it’s 51 bytes of data.
But what does this data actually contain? How should I interpret this if I want to understand what HOMERPEPE actually consists of?
*: apparently including the OP_RETURN data caused StackExchange to prevent my submission of this question ¯(ツ)/¯
