This field interprets the referenced Cell deps.

There are two ways to reference a Cell dep:

  • For a Cell dep with code as dep_type, the dep Cell is directly included in the transaction.
  • For a Cell dep with dep_group as dep_type, CKB first loads this dep Cell, assuming its content contains a list of Cell deps, then uses the extracted list of Cell deps to replace the current Cell deps, and include them in the current transaction. This provides a quicker and smaller (in terms of transaction size) way to include multiple commonly used dep Cells in one CellDep construct.
