About this event

“Nonetheless, many moments of unusual faithfulness can be found in the Christian past, both recent and ancient. It is important to note, however, that even when such moments turned out to make a dramatic difference for later history, they almost always resulted from gratitude to God rather than from a desire to influence the future.” --- Decisive Moments in History .

On December 18-19th, IOSG 8th Old Friends Reunion will spotlight to reunite friends again. We will bring together renowned blockchain developers, investors, and community enthusiasts from home and abroad to share their ideas and opinions. Enlightening like stars and shining like diamonds, all of us will seize the opportunity to create brilliant achievements for the industry together!

Scaling Summit

As Vitalik says, in the 2021“Layer2 is the future of Ethereum scaling,” whether, for Bitcoin or Ethereum, it has been difficult for us to scale the blockchain to a global level. With more and more transactions on the chain, users face endless waiting and high transaction fees. Although highly anticipated as the primary infrastructure for global open-source applications, Ethereum’s limited block space can no longer meet people's needs at this stage. The high transaction costs and unsatisfactory user experience have made people realize that the network needs to scale.

We can build a truly decentralized and scalable network that can compete with the traditional Internet to answer the question. We have seen some solutions such as State channels, Sidechains, Plasma, Optimistic Rollups and zk-Rollups, which have their own trade-offs and advantages in terms of security, decentralization, throughput, and flexibility. Nevertheless, there is still some way to go.

IOSG Ventures has always believed in the positive cycle of the "technology-capital" paradigm that started with infrastructure and technological revolution. Our investment strategy is always the same, which is the perseverance to invest in long-termism and value. Namely, based on the macroscope of the industry, we always pursue a thesis of a research-based and technology-and-innovation-driven investment. Besides, we have joined some scaling projects like Aztec, Arbitrum, Celer and Aurora. We also prioritize and believe in the potential of each scaling solution. Therefore, at the Scaling Summit, we hope to gather well-known blockchain developers, investors, and community enthusiasts at home and abroad to sparkle with insights!
