    Categories: Blockchain

    A model comprising of inputs and outputs that determine how transactions are executed on the Bitcoin network. Under this model, when a bitcoin transaction takes place, two UTXOs are created – the first is the total amount in the sender’s wallet that is sent to the recipient; and the second is the change output over and above what the actual transaction stipulates the recipient should receive, and which goes back to the sender’s wallet.
