The "Yellow Paper" is Ethereum's formal specification.


The problem is that it's difficult to read for people not familiar with formal specifications.

[Q]: is there a readable (less formal) version of it?

1 Answer 1


Since few days there is "Beige Paper", which is a rewrite of the Yellowpaper in non-Yellowpaper syntax, which is readable by a broader audience.
