PlasmaCon 2024 will be particularly special because it was Joseph Poon and Vitalik Buterin who originally conceptualized Plasma as an Ethereum scaling solution in 2017 to help bring Visa-level transaction volumes to Ethereum. Though Plasma was superseded by Rollups due to issues with user experience and online requirements, Vitalik Buterin mentioned his conviction of Plasma’s comeback, which he described in his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 number of attendees is capped at 400, and there will be over 15 experts from across the world sharing their knowledge and insights on everything from the Return of Plasma to privacy, data availability problem, blobs, recursive ZKP, dApps on Plasma and much more. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with industry leaders, and all the guests will have the chance to ask questions about the panels and participate in discussions with some of the smartest minds of today.

Key Themes:

  • Scalability Solutions for Ethereum: Discussions will delve into new technologies and protocols designed to enhance the scalability of Ethereum, making it faster and more efficient.
  • Privacy Enhancements: The conference will cover the latest advancements in ensuring user privacy on the Ethereum network, addressing one of the most critical concerns in today’s digital age.
  • Application Use Cases: Attendees will get 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 active involvement in the Edcon 2024 Tokyo and the PlasmaCon side event, INTMAX reaffirms its dedication to support innovative builders and promote insightful discussions in the Ethereum space. These events are pivotal in advancing knowledge, addressing industry challenges, and showcasing the diverse capabilities that INTMAX brings to the blockchain community.


INTMAX is the Stateless Ethereum Layer built for mass adoption. Crafted on the principles of statelessness, advanced offline safety and capital efficiency, it is one of the most efficient native Ethereum L2 solutions currently available. By leveraging a mere 5 bytes of on-chain information to confirm the validity of computations, INTMAX drastically cuts the typical computational and storage overhead found in traditional blockchain systems. This minimalist approach not only increases scalability but also fortifies censorship resistance across the network. Moreover, it enhances privacy and security, moving beyond traditional rollup constraints and offering robust protection against a variety of network disruptions and threats.
