How will OMG Plasma be utilized going forward?

Let me take the first stab at that. OMG Plasma has really important advantages and technical features that are currently unrivaled. For example, with OMG Plasma, in principle, we can do 64,000 transactions per block. Plasma has been out there for a while and that means we have considerably more trust in the performance of Plasma relative to solutions that simply haven't been battle-tested. The way we're thinking about Plasma right now is as one of two key choices that we want to offer to people. Because there's no conflict between a plasma as architecture and OMGX, they're complimentary. As a baseline, one of our engineering goals from the user perspective is to make it as easy as possible to select the correct technology for a particular transaction. From a wallet perspective, our design goal is when the user interacts with a wallet, that perhaps even on a per transaction basis, they're able to pick and choose where they would like to operate. That of course means we need bridges that make it super easy to move back and forth from Plasma to OMGX and then OMGX to other places. This is not so much about telling people what they should do. This is about making it incredibly easy for people, as they interact with OMG in general, to choose whatever underlying platform they want for a particular transaction or for a particular type of operation.
