I assume this wouldn't make it into the mempool or be relayed, but if a miner decided for some odd reason to mine a transaction like this, would it be valid? or would other miners reject it?

If we take the transaction's structure :

  • 00000000 (version)
  • 00 (nInputs)
  • 00 (nOutputs)
  • 00000000 (locktime)

Of course, that's a good question, and your transaction's structure is correct. But,this transaction is going to be rejected. This transaction must have a version equals to 1. This must be required. In Bitcoin, it doesn't exist a transaction with a version equals to 0. In addition, a transaction must have 1 input and 1 output at last.

Have a nice day.


No, it would be invalid. Every transaction must have at least one input and at least one output.
