I am trying to make my daily advancement in Bitcoin knowledge and got stuck again.
Trying to understand the blockchain a bit better, I stumbled upon this transaction here:http://blockexplorer.com/tx/719eb1028a473ac8e804be26542ba3a90effd81e852f83774042ece9ff5bdd04
Looks like this is 1AZUP.... spending some of his/her hard earned bitcoins. But there are three things I do not understand.
Where is the economic sense of paying to 113 recipients in one transaction?
And how would one generate such a transaction?
I could come up with an idea to these two aspects: Probably the tx has not been generated by the GUI client but by a command line or RPC client. And, maybe, it is a mining pool paying out all the fellow miners in a single efficient transaction. Smart.
But how likely would it be that the recipients would ALL have their addresses start with the same prefix of "1Kr"
This probability is ...um... zero.
So this is not the correct interpretation.
So what is the correct interpretation here ? What is the deeper mystery of things going on here
