Certainly yes, but I expect they’ll want to get the whitepaper itself rehosted on their own site fairly promptly. I’ve just now requested they send me a copy as well. I think a proper summary of Arbitrum as a protocol which references the other resources I provided above in addition to the requested whitepaper would be valuable.


the whitepaper on their websiste now.


Cheers, updated the original post to reflect that!
