What does the HOMERPEPE issuance transaction actually contain?

Since NFTs are being discussed a lot lately, I got curious about HOMERPEPE and how it's actually constructed. Here's the link to the token on xchain.io: https://xchain.io/asset/HOMERPEPE I followed the link to the transaction that issued this token, and the actual transaction details are here: https://blockstream.info/tx/3f0053d19b7feb5731a3be83b16212516b934d3da456d5b47d97c51ab4b24f4c?expand And the transaction includes this data: Type OP_RETURN scriptPubKey (asm) OP_RETURN OP_PUSHBYTES_51 37ca2a1f7998dd559649c42c6ecc8bb866c3523420199a2c04d0dbb3ad47e4c5f4b645be83beb0650046bd2179470cc91f9a5e scriptPubKey (hex) 6a3337ca2a1f7998dd559649c42c6ecc8bb866c3523420199a2c04d0dbb3ad47e4c5f4b645be83beb0650046bd2179470cc91f9a5e OP_RETURN data (omitted*) I gather that OP_RETURN is used to basically publish a message on the blockchain, and OP_PUSHBYTES specifies that it's 51 bytes of data. But what does this data actually contain? How should I interpret this…

Where is the actual data stored in blockchain?

I know that the blockchain stores the transnational data and it is immutable but where is the actual data stored? If there is a use case to replace a centralized data center solution with a blockchain solution, where will the data be stored in blockchain? Data centers usually have petabytes of raw data, hence I am assuming that a decentralized solution like blockchain won't be able to accommodate large amounts of data. For e.g. bitcoin as of today is ~270GB, meaning that every node requires this much amount of storage. But the problem here is that the data is an…
