It's worth the trip. I was in New England with the kids a couple months ago and we had a great time in Portsmouth. This was the first stop.

What does op_return do? Looked it up in mastering bitcoin: 0x6a halt and invalidate transaction. Must be more to it if it is what allows Memo etc.

love that someone can post "what does op_return do" on memo, using op_return. good sign for the future! on boarding people who don't have to know how BCH works to use it!

I'm sure lightning will be like that one day😝. Gives me a good idea for a slogan. "Don't get burnt by lightning, use Bitcoin Cash!" Could also say struck, hit, shocked.

Any data after the op code is ignored but is still part of the transaction. This page has some more info: https://memo.cash/protocol

Ty for the links. A good quote from the first article: Some (including Wuille) worry that people will use this new transaction type for storing messages or memos.

I saw that too. Wonder if that's how they got the name. Memo guys, how did you come up with the name memo?
