I am not sure…but, something wrong.
In this two years, I have been to 10 countries
including US. I saw a lot of problems like poverty,
disparity, discrimination, pollution, and so on. When I
was in India, a child came up to me begging for
money. He said “give me money”. Actually, it was my
first experience to be told such a thing. I was
shocked and I have been thinking the cause and
solution since then. Today, my passion is to make a
decentralized society where the edge has a power
to change the world.
Let’s Fix the Internet.
Today, the internet has many problems.
Why Does “Decentralization” Matter For ME?
Power to the “Edge” and Get Closer
Administers manage the community.

People are connecting
closer and closer
Existing methods are terrible.
• Taking long time
• More than 70% of world population
doesn’t have a bank account
• The people who really need money
don’t have an access to financial
“10% of global GDP will be stored on Blockchains by 2025”
World Economic Forum
“As disruptive and important as the PC and the Internet”
“The technology most likely to change the next decade of
business is not the social web, cloud, robotics, or even artificial
intelligence. It’s the blockchain.”
Harbard Business Review
“Gartner Group forecasts an accelerating takeoff for blockchain platforms.
Blockchain is estimated to have delivered $4 billion in business value-add
or technology innovation in 2017, with that growing to $21 billion by 2020,
$176 billion in 2025 and $3.1 trillion by 2030, says Gartner.”
Decentralized trust. That’s a big idea. When, in the history of humanity,
have we been able to execute this proposition?
Sure, perhaps in villages, but on a global scale? So let’s imagine a connected
global village—networked, rather—operating concurrently on a blockchain
system of global trust. For this to happen, this networked trusting village,
we must totally rethink our current economic systems, socio-political structures,
norms, and mores. That sort of disruption, or shall we say metamorphosis, is not
only logistically complicated but also downright threatening to existing structures
and systems. So what does that mean for blockchain technology?

Every transaction will be based on the decentralized trust.
But, how? There are both private blockchains and public blockchains.
These blockchains are connected each other.
What is “Lightning Network”?
Lightning Network is a protocol for scaling and speeding
up blockchains. It was designed to solve some of the
technical limitations of the Bitcoin blockchain, but could
be implemented on top of any blockchain.
What is “Schenorr Sig”?
Planning to change the way of digital signature
• Integrate multiple signatures
into a single signature
• More than 40% data reduction
might be possible
What is “Segwit(2X)”?
At the first time, the ways by which we can overcome the scalability problems
are only “reducing a transaction data size” or “making a block size bigger”.
So, what is the segwit2X

What is “MAST”?
What is “Plasma”?
Similer to state channel. However, the transactions are processed on plasma blockchains
instead of off-chains, and the transaction speed is increased.
• Reducing the data which is preserved on Ethereaum blockchain.
• Increasing the transaction speed.
What is “Sharding”?
"You can verify the correctness of computations without
having to execute them and you will not even learn what
