Hi,

So I'm learning bit by bit on how to create a transaction (without using any external library).

When creating the scriptSig, we sign the transaction hash using the spender's private key. Does that mean that the scriptSig is the same for all inputs?  Or is the tx hash calculated separately for each input?

Also, is there a developers chat or group?

The hash is different for each input.

In that case, what do we put in the final "hash" parameter of the transaction? Is it the double-hashed raw transaction before it's broadcasted?

yes and no ...  Grin Cheesy

yes: while creating your tx, you replace the sigscript with the pubkey script.
no: when signing the whole structure, you are doing a hash. As the unsigned, raw transaction has previous tx hash and previous outpoint, when you hash it, this creates always a different value, which makes the sig again being different for each input.

there is just a similiar question here:
