350 byte vs 268 byte NeoScrypt blocks

Recommended Posts

There are two types of NeoScrypt blocks being mined:

  1. 350 bytes that includes an "empty" output
  2. 268 bytes that does not include it

What is the point of that "empty" (not sure about the right term) output? Obviously it is slowing down the mining and bloating the blockchain (albeit by only ~40 MB/year by my calcs).

That second output stores OP_RETURN data.  Why the miner does it seems not clear to me either, though.

CCminer does it by default, eg I mined this block and didnt do anything special: https://explorer.xaya.io/block/538112
