Blockchain technology is something that’s very expensive to implement today. The goal of Plasma is to reduce the cost of implementing it so that anyone who knows JavaScript can create a fully functional cryptocurrency complete with user interface in one page of code. This is one page of code that can sit on your monitor at one time, it’s like a complete cryptocurrency. You can transfer it, you can do everything you can do with Bitcoin, minus the scripting, but transfer from key to key balances. And you can implement all that knowing only Javascript and without knowing any cryptography. That’s the goal of Plasma.
