  • First Lisk New Orleans Blockchain meetup

    Severe thunderstorms, monsoon rains and the threat of hail dominated the day on May 3rd in New Orleans. That didn’t deter a wide variety of guests from attending the great presentation, q&a and all around social experience. Representatives of Ethereum meetups, the Expanse developer team, several interested businessmen, developers and friends were among those in attendance.

    The meetup environment was perfectly captured with lounge style atmosphere. Everyone talked to everyone else and there were some very productive discussions that resulted. Many connections were made and a number made the pledge to return to the next meetup. A two part presentation on the features and advantages of Blockchain in general was followed by the features and advantages of the Lisk blockchain. This triggered some really great questions. The discussions were exactly the type we wanted to inspire.

    Expanse team added to an already diverse crowd

    Meetups are a great way to assemble interested and passionate people. If you have any questions, ideas, or would like to present or advertise please contact us and join our group Lisk New Orleans @ Meetup.com.

  • How To Becoming Lisk Delegate and Forging activation

    Guide By,

    densmirnov

      Hello! Here is a little, but comprehensive guide for delegate registration and subsequent forging activation. I have tried to depict the most convenient way to do so. Feel free to ask any questions or express your wishes. Good luck!


    0. PREREQUISITES

      — Setup your own Lisk Node (you can use great cc001's tutorial for example) — Check that you have Installed curl, wget, tar, sudo, unzip, zip — Create a lisk user with sudo and set a password. — Update the systems Locale — Download and Install Lisk — Create new accountSave the passphrase at multiple secure locations!


    1. REGISTER YOURSELF AS A DELEGATE

      — Open web interface of your Lisk node

    Image

    Image

      — Open FORGING tab and click on DELEGATE REGISTRATION button

    Image

      — Choose and enter your delegate name. Keep in mind that you can't change it later! Also remember about a fee of 25 LSK. When you are ready, click REGISTER.

    Image

      — After a couple of moments you should see your new name next to your wallet number

    Image

      — Congratulations! your delegate has been registered! But if you gonna try to activate forging right now, most likely you will fail and see the 'Access Denied' error

    Image
    Image


    2. ACTIVATE FORGING

      — Connect to your node via SSH. Change directory to Lisk folder

    Image

      — Open config.json in any editor, for example nano by running:

      Code: Select all

      nano config.json

    Image

      — In the forging section leave 'force' to false, enter your passphrase as 'secret' and whitelist your IP. Save the changes by pressing Ctrl+O, then press Ctrl+X to exit

    Image

      — Now reload your Lisk instance by running:

      Code: Select all

      bash lisk.sh reload

    Image


    3. VOTE FOR DELEGATES

      — Open web interface of your Lisk node again. Open Forging tab and check that Forging is enabled

    Image

      — Open Delegates tab. Choose delegates from the list to vote for. Click Vote. You can vote no more than 33 delegates once. Also remember about a fee of 1 LSK for each vote[/b]

    Image
    Image
    Image

      — Open My Votes tab to check currently selected delegates. You can unvote any delegate at any time. Also remember that you can vote no more that for 101 delegates total

  • Lisk Consensus 2017 through the eyes of a non-developer

    After finishing preparations, it was time for Max Kordek, Oliver Beddows and myself to pack our bags and attend Consensus 2017 and Tokensummit 2017 in the heart of New York City. In this blogpost, I will share my personal opinion as a new addition to the team, elaborate on our experiences during both conferences and highlight the main takeaways of our successful week abroad. Consensus 2017 featured several keynotes and panel discussions throughout the day, addressing most opportunities and challenges in the Blockchain space today. Topics ranged from privacy to regulation and from governance to healthcare. Following I will highlight a few topics of interest.





    Thomas Schouten, Oliver Beddows and Max Kordek representing Lisk at Consensus 2017

    Health Care in Blockchain

    Several healthcare companies are planning to integrate Blockchain technology to improve their database systems. One of the discussion panels elaborated on the challenges the healthcare industry faces like how complicated it is to give people more control over their personal data. Debbie Bucci from the US Department of Health and Human Service summarised the health care discussion in one sentence:

    “Consumers don’t really know the power of owning their own information.”

    Before we can expect massive public adoption from any kind of Blockchain technology, the public needs a better understanding about the problems Blockchain could solve and how it empowers the people. Informing the public generates the needed trust before adoption can take place. For Lisk, this means that we should hold on to our strategy of making Blockchain technology more accessible by developing our framework written in JavaScript, special focus on user experience, developer support, in-depth documentations and the Lisk Academy to accelerate this adoption process.


    The show must go on, working on Lisk from the hotel lobby

    Blockchain and ICOs

    Another topic with much interest was the buzz around Initial Coin Offerings (ICO), by many seen as the newest funding mechanism of the future in an increasing tokenized world. Different perspectives were provided to the audience by a panel discussing the legal and regulatory implications of ICOs. Peter Van Valkenburgh (Coin Center) pointed out that the term ICO is very commonly associated with the heavily regulated Initial Public Offering (IPO):

    “What does an organisation like the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulate? They regulate IPOs. Why would you adopt the terminology of the regulator while you are building on something you don’t want to be regulated?”.

    Although ICOs are designed as a funding mechanism, projects that focus on their utility rather than only transferring value should stray away from that financial image by replacing the terms digital currencies, coins and cryptocurrencies by “tokens” for example. Some projects already recognised the importance of this and started calling their ICO a token-sale or regular crowd-sale. At Lisk we agree on this trend and acknowledge the importance to emphasise the future utility of the Lisk (LSK) token.

    Major Announcements

    On the first day of the conference, global financial institution Citi and stock exchange NASDAQ kicked off by announcing their partnership on a new Blockchain payments initiative. Adam Ludwin (CEO of Chain), together with two representatives from both Citi and Nasdaq explained how they are looking to tackle liquidity issues in the private securities market by using the Blockchain technology of Chain. The Blockchain industry no longer only consists of developers and start-ups preaching for a decentralised future. Big companies such as IBM, Toyota and Deloitte were interested in the benefits of trustless ledgers and private Blockchains. Even though we see the benefits of private Blockchains, at Lisk we believe that a decentralised future is shaped through public Blockchains by enabling developers to build Blockchain applications with our upcoming SDK. However, with big companies and VC’s entering the Blockchain space, a broader movement towards decentralisation can be perceived. Through those established firms, more money flows into the industry, credibility and public trust increases from which the whole Blockchain industry benefits, including Lisk.




    Suits on the stage and in the audience: corporate atmosphere during Consensus 2017

    Networking

    Although the keynotes and panel discussions were not directly relevant to Lisk, it contributed to my personal understanding of the Blockchain industry, especially since I am new to the Blockchain space. Most value for Lisk was generated by its exposure on the conference floor and our ability to network with industry peers. In the evening we attended networking events including a dinner organised by our legal firm MME. Here we met people from the Blockchain space such as Guy Benartzi. During the dinner he pitched us the interesting concept behind his Bancor Protocol.


    The Lisk Foundation gets support by Thomas Linder from MME, our legal firm based in ‘Crypto Valley’

    Throughout the week, Max introduced Oliver and me to his network and friends from the space he met over the years. This included the people of our own PR agency Wachsman, based in New York City. We distributed and collected lots of merchandise, pitched the Lisk project and shook an incredible amount of hands with interesting people. Among those Warren Anderson (Ripple), Paige Peterson (Zcash), Etham Buchman (Cosmos), Patrick Dai (Qtum), Vasiliy Ivanov (SONM), Eyal Hertzog (Bancor) and Vitas Civilis (Mysterium). Since it was clear that we were representing Lisk, it was easier for people to approach us. A great number of new people showed their interest in Lisk by raising questions or asking for our advice. The result? A suitcase full of business cards, more investors and a growing Lisk fan base.


    Finally meeting the talented people behind Wachsman PR

    Perceived Controversy

    As Consensus 2017 came to its end, a certain criticism and disappointment among some attendees became noticeable. Especially among the attendees that were present during previous editions of Consensus. Some even felt that the conference was in some ways a step backwards due to its focus on private Blockchains and corporate atmosphere. I perceived a certain tension between the crypto-enthusiasts and the corporations. It seemed to me as if those two worlds are existing independently from each other. Although both try to use Blockchain technology in the best way possible, the differences in vision and execution became clear. In contrast to profit focused corporations relatively new to the space, the founders of cryptocurrencies and early adopters become even more wealthy by new money entering, permitting them to focus more on ethics and their personal vision of a decentralised future. Whether those two worlds will merge remains unanswered for now. However, the growing interest for Bitcoin and Blockchain technology has its positive effect on the size and potential of the still relatively small Blockchain space.

    Consensus was a meaningful part of my steep learning curve since I started working for Lisk. It became clear to me that Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt multiple industries across the globe. But in my opinion we are still far away from mass adoption. Together with the rest of Lisk, it is my task to accelerate that process by providing the right tools and support to enable developers to create stunning Blockchain applications that soon will provide value for millions of people across the globe.

    About the Author Thomas Schouten is Marketing Lead at Lightcurve and the Lisk project. He has great interest for disruptive technologies and the potential of Blockchains. After working as online marketing consultant, he made his entrance into the Blockchain space as one of the first non-developers on the team. With his background in business and marketing, he is responsible for the ideation, development and execution of marketing strategies for Lisk.

  • SwiftyLisk - The Bridge between iOS Apps and Lisk



    Introduction

    You wanted it, so here it is: introducing SwiftyLisk, the Swift API that allows iOS and macOS applications to interact with the Lisk blockchain and sidechains.

    Why This Matters

    Whenever someone talks about apps built using Lisk, they refer to JavaScript apps that take advantage of Lisk's blockchain functionalities. Yet, I believe the horizon for Lisk can be much wider and include more than only JavaScript: on Apple's App Store there are more than 2 million apps, and certainly a percentage of them may benefit by integrating Lisk. A game may build a hack-resistant reward system on a Lisk sidechain; a business app may store transaction records on a Lisk sidechain; a photo app may store encrypted backups of their users' pictures on a Lisk sidechain. The possibilities are pretty much infinite. Yet, interactions between Swift and Lisk are pretty hard. One needs to hand-craft http requests, send them through the internet, handle responses with possible errors, etc. Lisk may be losing a big chunk of potential users because of this entry barrier and my goal is to get rid of it; to empower iOS and macOS developers by giving them the tools that will allow them to fully take advantage of the Lisk blockchain and its sidechains. That's why I developed SwiftyLisk.

    Where to Find SwiftyLisk

    SwiftyLisk can be found at this GitHub repo. On the main page you will find detailed instructions on how to integrate SwiftyLisk in your iOS and/or macOS project, so that you can take advantage of Lisk's blockchain and its sidechains right now.

    The Future of SwiftyLisk

    The next two steps I planned for this project are: 1. Create queueable operations for each API call 2. Create objects for developers to use (i.e. "Account", "Block", "Transaction", etc.), so that no direct API call must be made.

    Supporting SwiftyLisk

    If you want to support the development of SwiftyLisk, please consider voting LiskUser1234 for delegate. You can find my delegate proposal here. All forging rewards will go towards the development of SwiftyLisk and other related projects.

    If you are a developer, you are welcome to contribute to SwiftyLisk. As a way to thank you for your contributions, I will cast a vote for you or, in case you are not a delegate, I will send you a donation.

    Related Projects

    SwiftyLisk will power the Lisk iOS Wallet, which is another project I have been working. Please note that at the time of writing this the development of the Lisk iOS Wallet has been paused, because I first want to complete SwiftyLisk. Once SwiftyLisk is complete and the first stable version of the Lisk iOS Wallet is ready, I will make the full source code of the Lisk iOS Wallet available on GitHub under GPL v3 and link it here.
