How to get _integer_ satoshi values from JSON RPC?

It seems that RPC calls for getting JSON information on a block return "value" fields in bitcoins, not in satoshis. This means that there is a conversion from integer to float somewhere, which is disturbing since it may introduce rounding errors. Is there a way to get the integer satoshi values directly in the JSON? Otherwise, is it completely safe to just multiply the float value by 10^8 and take the integer part? Is there a better way to directly obtain the integer satoshi value? Thanks! Let me give some context. My concern is that, for instance, most systems have…

Transaction outputs with value 0

If I am correct, some transactions have outputs with "value" field equal to 0, and some even have all their output "value" fields equal to 0. See for instance: transaction 9173744691ac25f3cd94f35d4fc0e0a2b9d1ab17b4fe562acc07660552f95518 I wonder if this is a feature or a bug, and what it means to send 0. Any thoughts?

Where can I find data for abandoned blocks (74,638 to 74,690) for the Value Overflow Incident when ₿184 billion BTC were accidentally created?

I already have data for all the Mainchain Blocks. Where can I find data for the orphaned/abandoned blocks (74,638 to 74,690) before the re-organisation occurred? I can only seem to find information for block 74,638 and the timestamp for block 74,639. I cannot seem to find anymore. I have been digging through waybackmachine without much luck. Any help appreciated!

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…

Cryptocompare API is not updated

I have created an android app for maintaining the portfolio. I have used the coinmarketcap.com API. This API does not have the data at exchange level. I have tried https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/ this does not have the exchanges like some of the exchanges like https://koinex.in (or) Zebpay.com and the some crypto pairs.These are just some of the missing exchanges. Is there is any API which has all the exchanges in the crypto world ? I wonder how other apps are fetching all the possible exchanges and the crypto currency pairs. Please advice.
