In the "outputs" array, there is this item:

{"index":1,"value":0,"address":null,"type":"op_return","multisig":null,"multisig_addresses":null,"script":"OP_RETURN 04fdfb5609aecb84f9f8f11f87bb1b7f9049805d3c6bee01d2199e99","script_hex":"6a1c04fdfb5609aecb84f9f8f11f87bb1b7f9049805d3c6bee01d2199e99","spent_hash":null,"spent_index":0}

Why does it have the value of null for both fields "address" and "multisig_addresses"? What does "OP_RETURN" in the field "script" mean?

You can find a full explanation of OPRETURN here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/OP_RETURN

TLDR; OPRETURN is a "data push" output, it allows for putting up to 80 bytes of data into the transaction that have effect on the transaction.
And the value for that output can be 0.

It is used for various things, amongst others; publishing "proof of existence" hashes in the blockchain and meta protocols.

  • What exactly does this transaction do? It seems that the three addresses participated in multisig send the majority of money to themselves with some sent to an "estimated change address" (what exactly is this? if this is the address which will receive change, why is there still an output containing the three addresses in multisig receiving the rest of the bitcoin except for fee?). – Aqqqq Mar 3 '17 at 21:04

because the blockchain.info programmers have their hands grown from the ass
