Justin Drake
Ethereum Foundation
Justin Drake is a prominent researcher at the Ethereum Foundation, renowned for his expertise in cryptographic protocols and blockchain technology. He has been instrumental in the development of Ethereum 2.0, particularly focusing on key components such as Proof of Stake (PoS) and sharding, which are critical for enhancing the scalability and security of the Ethereum network.

Justin’s work is pivotal in addressing the data availability problem and preventing block withholding attacks through innovative solutions like the “Blob” concept. He is deeply involved in exploring how these technologies can evolve to support decentralized applications (DApps) and decentralized autonomous structures (DASs).

With a background in cryptography and a passion for decentralized systems, Justin frequently shares his insights at major blockchain conferences and through various publications. His contributions are vital to the ongoing development and future vision of Ethereum.

About PlasmaCon

Plasma was the most discussed scalability solution for Ethereum in 2017. However, it was considered technically challenging and was eventually forgotten. But Plasma remains an "ideal." In 2024, we will complete Plasma. At this PlasmaCon, you can learn everything about Plasma, from its history to the latest technological trends, all in one day.
