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!
CEO Max Kordek StatesNo!-
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.
