This tag should be used for questions related to raw transactions, bitcoin transactions that have been serialized for network transmission.

Raw transactions are bitcoin transactions that have been serialized for network transmission. Use this tag for questions relating to how to serialize, deserialize, or manipulate raw transaction data.

Raw transactions are also used as part of Bitcoin Core's RPC interface through the use of the following RPC commands: createrawtransaction, decoderawtransaction, getrawtransaction, sendrawtransaction, and fundrawtransaction.

Typically, hex formatting is used for representing raw transactions in the RPC commands, questions and answers. The format of raw transactions can be found on bitcoin.org
