We are very pleased to share the first public draft of our whitepaper.  

It is an excellent starting place for getting a concrete indication of  where we are going technically, but be very aware that this is a draft  document which will be updated on an ongoing basis, as the preface states

This is an evolving document meant as a basis for an iterative review,  technical specification and testing, and revised versions will be  developed on the basis of that process. Multiple aspects of the protocol  are still subject to active research, and any part of the current  design may be amended or entirely abandoned as a result of subsequent  considerations.

Have a look, and please get back to us with questions, fixes and criticism!
