Scaling the world computer is hard. Join us in discussion around solutions for scaling Ethereum for the future.

The Ethereum network can process around 1.3 million transactions per day at a rate of 13 tx/s while VisaNet processes 150 million transactions at a rate of 1600 tx/s. How can Ethereum reach global adoption with 1/100th of Visas throughput? Blockchain scaling comes with a unique set of problems by the very nature of decentralization. How can Ethereum achieve scalability while remaining secure & decentralized?

Well be discussing solutions such as sharding, side chains, off-chain computation, & state channels.
