I'm not sure I understand Steve.

The home page says "OpenAttestation is an open-sourced framework to 
notarise documents using the blockchain." But, I don't see any 
white-paper anywhere on:

- The business problem it solves; or
- Why existing schemes/technology do not solve the problem that 
necessitates the use of a new framework.

Does such a white-paper exist?

Thanks.

Arshad

P.S. Curious that an "open" framework would choose to publish its 
content on a commercial .com domain rather than the traditional top 
level domain for open-source projects: .org.
