FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

INTMAX, a Family Sponsor at EDCON Tokyo and a pioneering Layer 2 zkRollup with stateless architecture, is pleased to announce PlasmaCon in Tokyo, taking place alongside EDCON Tokyo 2024, the renowned Ethereum development conference dedicated to supporting the Ethereum ecosystem and fostering community interaction worldwide.


PlasmaCon will be held from 12:30 to 17:00 local time at the United Nations University in Tokyo on July 31st.

INTMAX PlasmaCon is a builder-focused event designed to bring together leading industry experts to explore alternative methods for scaling Ethereum, privacy solutions, statelessness, and other important topics. Though Plasma was superseded by Rollups due to issues with user experience and online requirements, Vitalik Buterin mentioned his conviction of Plasma’s comeback, which he described in his blog post “Exit games for EVM validiums: the return of Plasma.”

The event will feature notable speakers, including:

  • Vitalik Buterin, Co-founder of Ethereum
  • Justin Drake, Ethereum Foundation researcher
  • Barry Whitehat, researcher at the Ethereum Foundation and PSE
  • Scott Moore, Founder of Public Works and Co-founder of Gitcoin
  • Suji Yan, Founder of Mask Network
  • Ventali T., Co-founder of Lita
  • Leona Hioki, Plasma researcher and Co-founder of INTMAX

Venue: The United Nations University, located at:

5-53-70, Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-8925 Japan

PlasmaCon 2024 holds special significance as Joseph Poon and Vitalik Buterin first conceptualized Plasma in 2017 to scale Ethereum to Visa-level transaction volumes. Attendance is limited to 400, and over 15 global experts will share their insights on topics such as Plasma’s return, privacy, data availability, blobs, recursive ZKP, dApps on Plasma, and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with industry leaders and participate in discussions with leading experts.

Key Themes:

  • Scalability Solutions for Ethereum: Exploring new technologies and protocols to enhance Ethereum’s scalability and efficiency.
  • Privacy Enhancements: Covering the latest advancements in user privacy on the Ethereum network, addressing critical concerns in the digital age.
  • Application Use Cases: Providing insights into various applications of blockchain technology.

Leona Hioki, the Co-founder of INTMAX, said, “It’s time to let everyone know that Plasma is not dead—it’s even stronger than it was in 2018! PlasmaCon brought together incredible thinkers and visionaries who have transformed the entire tech industry. Now, it’s time to revisit Plasma, Statelessness, and Privacy. Join us in Tokyo on July 31st!”

Through its participation in EDCON 2024 Tokyo and the PlasmaCon side event, INTMAX reinforces its commitment to supporting innovative builders and promoting valuable discussions in the Ethereum space. These events are crucial for advancing knowledge, addressing industry challenges, and showcasing INTMAX’s diverse capabilities within the blockchain community.

INTMAX is a Stateless Ethereum Layer built for mass adoption. Designed on the principles of statelessness, advanced offline safety, and capital efficiency, it stands out as one of the most efficient native Ethereum L2 solutions. By using just 5 bytes of on-chain information to validate computations, INTMAX significantly reduces computational and storage overhead found in traditional blockchain systems. This minimalist approach not only boosts scalability but also strengthens censorship resistance across the network. Additionally, it improves privacy and security, surpassing traditional rollup constraints and offering robust protection against various network disruptions and threats.

INTMAX aims to address several critical issues facing blockchain technology today. With the increasing demand for scalable solutions, INTMAX’s stateless architecture offers a path forward that minimizes the burden on individual nodes, ensuring that the network remains accessible and efficient even as usage grows. This approach aligns with the broader goals of the Ethereum community to create a more scalable and sustainable blockchain ecosystem.

The focus on privacy at PlasmaCon will address one of the most pressing concerns in the digital world today. As blockchain technology becomes more integrated into various industries, ensuring the privacy and security of users becomes paramount. INTMAX’s commitment to enhancing privacy through innovative solutions will be a key topic of discussion, providing valuable insights into how these challenges can be met.

Moreover, the exploration of application use cases at PlasmaCon will highlight the versatility of blockchain technology. From decentralized finance (DeFi) to supply chain management and beyond, the potential applications of blockchain are vast. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how these technologies can be applied in real-world scenarios, driving innovation and adoption across various sectors.

INTMAX’s participation in EDCON 2024 Tokyo and PlasmaCon is a testament to its dedication to the Ethereum community. By fostering an environment where experts and enthusiasts can come together to share knowledge and ideas, INTMAX is playing a crucial role in the ongoing development and improvement of blockchain technology. These events not only provide a platform for learning and discussion but also help to build stronger connections within the community, paving the way for future collaborations and advancements.

INTMAX’s announcement of PlasmaCon during EDCON Tokyo 2024 highlights its commitment to advancing the Ethereum ecosystem. With a focus on scalability, privacy, and practical applications, PlasmaCon promises to be a significant event for anyone interested in the future of blockchain technology.
