Lisk is a Fork of Ethereum is Misunderstandings

  • since the launch of Lisk there was a lot of confusion about
    what it really is, and what it enables people to do in the future. This is partly
    our fault because during the ICO we advertised Lisk within other cryptocurrency
    communities, and we still haven’t released our vision paper. With this blog
    post I want to clean up some misunderstandings, and explain briefly what Lisk
    is and what it isn’t.

    Lisk is a fork of Ethereum!

    The Lisk code base was
    forked from the Crypti
    project Oliver and I were a part of for 18 months before we started Lisk. About
    2 years ago Crypti collected 750 BTC in order to develop a blockchain
    application platform. In the end the Crypti foundation developed a code base
    which was a good starting point for a new project. However, for the ultimate
    goal the available financial reserves were simply not enough to develop the
    idea to its fullest extent, even though it was managed extremely carefully.
    Oliver and I saw the potential and decided to take over, giving Crypti holders
    an exit opportunity, and giving the world the decentralized blockchain
    application platform it deserves. To get a more detailed understanding why Lisk
    is different than Ethereum, continue reading.
