Bitcoin client returns something strange with this transaction (getrawtransaction 90f...fda 1) : there is only one output address, and six input address. Yet, one of the input address targets a second output address ("vout": 1).

$ bitcoin-cli getrawtransaction 90ff15e5a80593977fb2f6666de2860584d39ebc3a41f65a0a1fdc3a851aefda 1

Moreover, blockchain.info does not seem to have been affected by that...

What can explain a such comportement ?

This is perfectly normal. The "vout":1 you see refers to the second output of one of the input transactions.

Say input transaction I funds the transaction T you are looking at. That means one of the outputs of transaction I funds the transaction T. This does not however imply that hte number of outputs of transaction T is dependent upon the number of outputs of transaction I.

  • Awesome ! I do not understand how to find the address of the creditor – max-lt Jul 15 '16 at 10:35
