Yellow Paper News

The Ethereum Yellow Paper is the official description of the Ethereum protocol. It was first drafted by Gavin Wood and is currently being updated by Nick Savers with input from many authors worldwide. A yellow paper is the technical equivalent of a white paper. If a white paper is considered a proposal, a yellow paper can be seen as its second part, containing all the specifics.

It includes a complete explanation of how everything operates in the Ethereum ecosystem, excluding any changes made via the Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) process. Furthermore, it uses language that programmers might not be familiar with because it is written in the style of a mathematical paper.
