A whitepaper may also contain project innovation clearly started to showcase the use case, solution resolved, and the chance of adoption. The information is put together to get more investors to act. Examples of whitepaper include the Bitcoin whitepaper, Polkastarter whitepaper, and Menzy whitepaper.
Whitepapers are usually available on the projects’ websites for users to read.
