Lisk is a Blockchain application platform, established in early 2016.
It will enable developers to create, distribute and manage decentralized Blockchain applications by deploying their own sidechain linked to the Lisk network, including a custom token.
Lisk had ICO between February and March 2016 and raised over 14k BTC
Tokens and usage
Lisk uses sidechains and a complete Software Development Kit (SDK) to enable a complete kit allowing developers to produce dapps and an independent blockchain under one system. This side blockchain is linked to and secured by the separately maintained Lisk blockchain.
There is no maximum amount of Lisk tokens in circulation but the inflation rate will decrease over time. Lisk (LSK) is a usage or utility token. It is used to pay for the network fees which occur for different types of transactions: for example sending the token around, registering a delegate, setup of a multi-sig account or voting for delegate
The biggest news happened at the end of August where the Lisk Core 1.0 was moved to mainnet. Lisk Core runs on all nodes on the network. The 1.0 introduces new features and improvements.
Along with the release of Lisk Core 1.0, the team have released Lisk Elements 1.0, Lisk Commander 1.0, Lisk Hub 1.0, Lisk Explorer 2.1.4 and Lisk Nano 2.0
They recently annouced a new and improved Lisk Ambassador Program – they will hold meetups about Lisk in their communities providing a ‘decentralised’ marketing.
The team is looking for almost 20 new employees (based in Berlin)
The roadmap on the website is out of date (basically development was delayed) but during the recent AMA the team said that they are working on the new roadmap.
The team is providing regular development updates and is also providing ‘next steps’ which are basically upcoming short term developments.
According to the old roadmap some of the developments that should soon finish are :
new fee and address system modularisation
dapp registration and managemenet
decentrealised exchange and sidechains
