  • Lisk-JS 0.3 — A grand overhaul

    The LiskHQ has been very serious about the security and integrity of the Lisk platform since the beginning of it’s inception. Lisk-JS continues to embody these values and provides every developer working with Lisk a standardised set of tools to interact with the blockchain. The Lisk-JS library now contains an API Wrapper, cryptographic tools, helper functions for developers to make their application more secure. This complete package makes it easy for anyone new to the system to start using Lisk. It has been written with the developer in mind, making the sending of transactions, and obtaining information from the Lisk blockchain simple and easy.

    Until now, Lisk-JS has played a lesser role in development. Last month we dedicated a lot of time on it in order to increase its functionalities and offer more amazing tools for the developer. The newly released Lisk-JS is now set to play a pivotal role in the development of our Lisk user-interfaces and third party applications.

    What’s New

    We have added numerous new features and tools to Lisk-JS. One major improvement was made by building a wrapper around all of the functions. This makes it easier and more secure for developers to start working with Lisk. The included API wrapper now allows you to get information from the Lisk blockchain using a range of simple function calls, removing the need to run a dedicated Lisk node to receive API requests. Please take a look at our documentation to learn more about the things you can achieve with Lisk-JS.

    The most important security feature added is the capability to locally sign transaction objects automatically. For example, when a developer uses POST or PUT requests to broadcast transactions to the Lisk network via Lisk-JS, the library makes sure that your passphrase never leaves your system. Transactions are now wrapped on-the-fly, signed by the library and then submitted as signed hashes to the network. After that point the passphrase is not needed anymore because any party can verify the integrity of the transaction.

    Finally, we have added several API functions and cryptographic enhancements, including the possibility to sign and verify messages with your Lisk passphrase. This is very useful for a “Proof of Account Ownership” or for escrow services.

    The full change log is available at: https://github.com/LiskHQ/lisk-js/releases/tag/0.3.0.

    The Future of Lisk-JS

    With regard to existing functionality, we have enhanced the usability by implementing more helper functions, improved the performance of existing functions, and added some new cryptographic tools.

    In the coming months, we expect changes in the Lisk core and Lisk-JS will become more radical. Therefore, we recommend everyone who is actively using Lisk-JS to keep an eye out for updates at: https://www.npmjs.com/package/lisk-js.

    In order to stay informed about updates, you can subscribe to the newsletter at the bottom of our website.

    Enjoy the new features and get connected with Lisk!

  • Lisk to Rebrand its Platform with Design Agency Taikonauten

    Today, we are announcing a collaboration with the distinguished design agency Taikonauten, with the goal of rebranding our ecosystem to greatly enhance the user experience and increase user adoption. Alongside the amazingly improved and blazing fast version releases (0.6.0 & 0.7.0) this marks significant progress for the Lisk project.


    We believe the corporate identity is as important as the development of the product which is surrounded by it. It’s one of the first steps to get recognized in the blockchain space or the Internet as a whole. We are very aware of the ruckus the original logo caused during inception and we’re finally in the midst of changing it.

    This collaboration enables us to employ the creative talents of the team at Taikonauten to entirely redesign crucial aspects of our ecosystem; such as the website, blockchain explorer and client user interface. Taikonauten will also overhaul Lisk’s corporate design, developing a new logo and media kit. This collaboration is part of our resilience phase, which in addition aims to build a more elegant core system, a better Lisk SDK, deploy various useful features, and continue to put a major focus on security.

    This collaboration will help the Lisk project more efficiently to communicate the goals of our platform. It will improve the user experience of the Lisk client to a level not seen before in the blockchain space, marking a first step for common user adoption, and unifying our whole ecosystem visually.
    Until now, Lisk has been concentrating its resources on the development of the back end. We have released many optimization, stability and security updates to date marking the significant progress the platform is making. Now, our attention moves to making visible changes to our current ecosystem.

    Lisk Foundation President Max Kordek said.

    With the hiring of Taikonaut, we have an outstanding design agency on board that will help create the next revolutionary branding for the Lisk ecosystem. Their creative genius out guns anyone within the Berlin area, making them an attractive choice for Lisk. After many creative talks with members of their team we are very excited to work with them.

    Our vision, together with Lisk, is to increase the visibility of this important platform. We aim to keep user needs at the heart of our approach and to make Lisk even more accessible to regular Internet users.

    said Maik Fahldieck, Founder and Managing Director of Taikonauten.

    We will be working with the design agency from March to August of 2017. There are several steps that stem from working with them, starting with the strategy section which paves the way on how the Lisk Platform will be moving forward with our identity. Once a corporate identity has been crafted and achieved, the design agency will provide rough design concepts, wireframes, and storyboards to help us visualize how it will all play out. The front end code will be done by lightcurve’s in-house developers when the final design concepts are ready.

  • Introducing lightcurve to the Lisk community!






    Since January 2017 the lightcurve GmbH is in a contractual collaboration with the Lisk Foundation,
    founded by Oliver Beddows and myself. Today, I want to introduce our
    company to the Lisk Community and explain how heavily Lisk will benefit
    from it.

    Responsibilities of lightcurve

    A blockchain strategy consultancy, development studio and marketing agency in one, that is lightcurve! We are supporting the Lisk ecosystem in many ways; for once with strategy sessions discussing how to proceed with the platform and how to grow the community economically. With heavily tested code we are advancing the various products overseen by the Lisk Foundation. By attending conferences, giving presentations about Lisk and organising meetups we are increasing the visibility of the Lisk platform within the blockchain industry and beyond. Another big focus is to answer all kinds of support queries from the community which come through on the Lisk Support Center.

    Core principles of lightcurve

    Based in Berlin we are crafting high quality strategies and code made in Germany, with a special focus on reliability, efficiency and security. The longevity of our products is of utmost importance for us, we live and breath this dictum everyday with our contributions to the Lisk codebases.

    Our office and team

    Currently, we are sitting at WeWork Sony Center, the most iconic business district in Berlin. However, this space becomes too small for us. Therefore, we are making preparations to move to our own office space in which we can scale up quickly and easily.

    Our team currently consists of nine members, we are expecting further additions soon, especially within the development and marketing departments.


    Hardworking developers in the lightcurve HQ!

    Making lightcurve part of the Lisk Community

    Not only to contribute to the Lisk ecosystem but also to see and feel the community needs, we are continuously making advancements to lightcurve’s transparency and its position within the Lisk Community.

    Three important steps were done today; by officially adding lightcurve to Lisk’s contributors list on its website, launching the lightcurve website and introducing lightcurve to the Lisk Community with this blog post.

    In the next days and weeks further steps will be taken, some we want to announce now. First, we are sponsoring a blockchain meetup in Berlin in which we will discuss Lisk’s advancements of the past month right at the start of every event. Second, we are registering and setting up our own delegate on the Lisk network. All delegate rewards will be evenly split between all lightcurve employees and freelancers with no active delegate spot. It’s up to the community if enough votes are gathered to get into the top 101, Oliver and I will vote with our private LSK exclusively for the lightcurve delegate.


    The first Blockchain Meetup organised by lightcurve.

    Situation between Lisk Foundation and lightcurve GmbH

    I think it’s very important to explain the constellation between the Lisk Foundation and the lightcurve GmbH. As both companies have the same founders, it’s in our best interest to explain transparently why we decided for that setup.

    The Lisk Foundation is overseeing and managing the Lisk project in a non-profit way as we believe this is the right path for such a stellar protocol. Even though the non-profit structure is a huge benefit for the philosophy and values behind the project, we believe it’s not the best case for an actual business with rapid development cycles and quick decision makings. Therefore, the foundation decided to outsource different kind of activities — like programming, design, marketing, PR, or liquidation of funds — while coordinating the progress made.


    As the founders of the Lisk project we want to keep the original spirit while also be responsible for the development and community. Therefore, we founded lightcurve to do exactly that. It doesn’t mean that the Lisk Foundation won’t cooperate with other third party development studios in the future or collaborate with other contractors, e.g. a marketing agency.

    We hope that our blog post clarifies our intentions and the direction we are going with the Lisk Foundation and with the lightcurve GmbH.

    From Max and Oliver.
