For a new transaction:

UTXO for each input - there can be many inputs `vin` The satoshis in each input need to be allocated to one or more outputs `vout` Custom script logic needs to be interpreted and satisfied A locking script logic can be added for each output (ScriptPubKey) New data can be added for each output (OP_RETURN) The transaction needs a signature
