Introducing Plasma Group

TLDR: We’ve created a simple way to deploy your own plasma chains.

Hello world! We are excited to announce a full service plasma toolbox for deploying, transacting on, building with, and developing on plasma chains. This implementation set foot in the aftermath of devconIV. Though it’s an unaudited beta release, we hope it will lay the groundwork for a community-driven initiative to make plasma a tool for decentralization for everyone. You can deploy your own plasma chain from the command line or connect to a plasma chain that we’ve deployed and send transactions via a command line wallet. This implementation is written in Javascript and Vyper, and includes a library of plasma utilities for those who want to build on top of it.

About us

Plasma Group is dedicated to the creation of an open plasma implementation for the greater Ethereum community. It’s our mission to push layer 2 scaling forward by exploring the full potential of the plasma framework. Together, we’ll build towards realizing the vision of a more decentralized future.

We recently published an article that describes our new work on a more generalized plasma architecture . This post goes into more detail about the architecture for those who are interested in how things work under the hood. We’ll go over how everything fits together at a high level, then we’ll jump into the sample implementation in Python. You can scroll forward to the diagrams if you’re already very familiar with plasma. Introduction The main takeaways from our previous article are: It’s hard t

Plasma Group’s Plasma Spec

TLDR: We created a spec for a Plasma Cash variant and implemented it in Node.js and Vyper. This document covers the design specification, providing references to the implementation along the way. Our code supports deploying a new chain to testnet, an on-chain registry of other plasma chains and their block explorers, and transacting via a command-line wallet. Introduction The vision of a network of blockchains as a scalability solution has been spreading rapidly. A multi-chain approach for paral
