  • Lisk Collaborates with Blockchain Consultancy, lightcurve


    We are excited to share with the Lisk community, our recent collaboration with blockchain consultancy, lightcurve GmbH. Teaming up with us at the Lisk Foundation, the lightcurve GmbH will support the
    development and promotion of our platform while assisting with managing  the Lisk community.


    This announcement tails our eagerly announced registration of the Lisk Foundation in December 2016, paving the way for a new beginning for the Lisk project. The Lisk Foundation continues to follow its mission of empowering the project to develop into a commonly used blockchain application platform.

    As progress is made, the Foundation will supervise the work done by individual, independent contractors and will continue to provide financial reports to our community on a regular basis. Additionally, lightcurve plans to hire additional, experienced software developers and marketing coordinators to work on the Lisk project.



  • Lisk Blockchain Applications — The Future of the SDK

    Over the past year we have seen Lisk evolve from its original Crypti code base into what we have today. The core has grown from its original SQLite implementation to the current PostgreSQL implementation. It has
    grown by thousands of lines of code, but what hasn’t happened is the growth of the Blockchain Applications SDK with the changes in Lisk-Core. While the existing implementation does work, it is not as easy to
    leverage as one would expect. Going forward the existing Applications SDK will be deprecated and archived.


    Why are we doing this?

    We want to create a better solution for all users. In order to promote organic growth of the applications platform, a complete rewrite of the SDK code base is required. In order to do that we must shed the old, outdated code and refresh it with new efficient code that works for everyone.

    There is a secondary reason for this change in direction. We want to ensure that we provide a quality product to anyone interested in developing on top of Lisk. It needs to work every time, for everyone involved. We will address the quality issue as part of our ongoing review of the existing code. The same review process will be applied to the development of the new code to ensure the quality remains high.

    When will this happen?

    As part of the 0.6.0 release we will be removing the Applications directory link from Lisk-UI. This change is aimed at reducing confusion about the availability of the application’s platform itself. We feel it’s important to offer these features when they are ready, instead of offering a potentially confusing experience for developers and users. The Blockchain Applications API will still be available for anyone willing to try and implement an application on the previous code, but we cannot guarantee full backwards compatibility between the new SDK and the old SDK.

    Changes to the Roadmap.

    As part of this process we will see some revisions to the phases of the Roadmap. Initially, we had planned to stabilize the existing SDK. After extensive study we have concluded that this is not the correct path to take. As such we will revise the Roadmap and provide further information about the revision at a later date.

    How can you help?

    Send us your ideas and offer suggestions on functionality you would like to see implemented into the platform. We make Lisk for everyone’s benefit and it’s important for us to get your feedback in order to grow the platform to support all use cases. As always, we welcome pull requests that offer improvements in this realm as well.

    Final Words

    As part of these efforts we plan to focus our efforts on the new SDK and ensuring that the quality meets not only our standards, but the standards of developers who wish to use our SDK. While much of this work is still in the conceptual stage, it is important to ensure the platform is very well thought out and will cover the majority of cases we think it will be used for. As always, we appreciate any feedback you might have and welcome you to join us on our chat platform, lisk.chat. We appreciate the time and energy our community has invested into Lisk to date and know that this change will put us on the right path for the future.

  • Browser games "BALLWARS" on the platform LISK

    Hello everyone!
    As many already know, we develop the game "BALLWARS" on the platform LISK and a lot of people expect to see it ( I hope :D ). In this regard, we created this topic, where will be published information about the game, screenshots, videos and more.
    We hope that you will enjoy and a few words about the game ....






    BALLWARS" is a free online game where each player must do only one thing... to survive.

    Interesting
    and exciting game in the third person (top view), with the elements of
    cs:go, agario and tanks (90). All players are expected by more than 30
    different cards, up to 10 types of weapons and, of course, up to 15
    animated characters. Playing in normal battles, every player who
    fulfilled certain conditions can participate in cash tournaments (this
    functionality will be implemented in version 2.0.0 of the game)!

    This
    game can be played from any PC or phone (android, IOS), because the
    game is a free browser game with great potential in development.





















    At this point, already made full Dizdok in the first version of the game
    "BALLWARS 1.0.0" and made the first sketches of the interface, maps,
    and playable characters.

    In this topic, you can learn more detail about the developers: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=1245

  • Lisk's Ad Blitz!

    author,

    BitBanksy

    Lisker

    Following the successful completion of the "Lisk Banner Contest" (1) and
    the "Cast Your Vote!" (2), I'm now launching the 3rd phase: Lisk's Ad Blitz!

    1: https://forum.lisk.io/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1381&p=10206#p10206
    2:
    https://forum.lisk.io/viewtopi...


    Sum up

    The goal of this new campaign is to advertise Lisk on CoinMarketCap!


    Why CoinMarketCap?

    Because the site gets around 50k visitors per day and 250k hits per day.


    How can I participate?

    Donate some LSK to my Lisk Awareness Fund: 14820233993774430788L


    How my donations will be spent?

    -
    A top banner cost $5.00 for 1000 impressions (BTC Equivalent). At
    current price, we need approximatively 35 LSK per 1K impressions.
    - Since impressions are spread evenly, the more impressions per day purchased, the more frequently the ad will show up.
    - Every advertising campaign will be itemised in the Analytics section (see below).


    Which banners will be advertised?

  • Community Meeting (Transcript) - February 11th, 2017

    Recap Of Meeting Intro:

    Lisk
    team confirmed and verified that they now have a total of 5 Developers,
    with 3 of those 5 being new hires, and more developers in the process
    of being hired in the coming 6-8 weeks. They speak briefly of the United
    States Trip and how it went very well, including many new blockchain
    enthusiast's following up with Max Kordek because of their interest in
    the Lisk platform. They also quickly spoke on, for the first time,
    meeting their PR Agency and how they had a productive meeting that
    included discussions of actions and things that can be done to continue
    Lisk's amazing growth. Lisk concluded this PR discussion with stating
    that Lisk is happy to be in partnership with such a great agency.

    Lisk Upcoming Meetups:

    Lisk Berlin Blockchain Meetup (WeWork) - March 9th 2017

    Isabella
    recaps the recent development task's that have been the main focus in
    Lisk and states that the SDK is being discussed and brainstormed every
    single day and that at this stage they would much rather be attentive
    and precise with how they move forward with the SDK rather than having
    to come back later to issues that could have been avoided with time. She
    also confirms that the 0.6.0 release is in testing phase now and should
    be released to the mainnet in the coming week or 2.

    Now, questions begin:

    - Dao: Will Lisk be supporting Blockchain App Developers?
    - Lisk (Max):
    Yes, Lisk will do so by giving out seed funding to developers, maybe
    even, inviting developers to the Lisk Headquarter for a place to work to
    in hope aid great projects.

    - Andreas: Isabella, are you moving to germany? or will continue remotely?
    - Lisk (Isabella):
    I'm continuing to think more into it. I really do like it here, but, it
    is a big step and I do have responsibilities back home that need to be
    addressed before I can commit to such a big transition.

    - Adrian: What notable changes does the new 0.6.0 version bring?
    - Lisk (Isabella):
    The new 0.6.0 includes big step forwards with changing, adding,
    modifying Transaction in-point rewrites, peer changes to better
    broadhash concensus, the ability to sync from specific peers, changes in
    Lisk SH, and an advancement in Lisk Snapshot. All in all, this is a
    very big advancement and we here at Lisk are excited to release that to
    you all.

    - Tim: Bitcoin price is pretty high, what are you going to do with the BTC collected during ICO?
    - Lisk (Max):
    Our plan is to liquidate all the ICO Bitcoin until we reach 10,000 BTC,
    when having reached 10,000 we will put these funds into a
    multi-signature wallet to hold. Therefor, in the coming weeks we have
    planned to liquidate 2,000 BTC as we know this will be enough to fund
    Lisk for the next 1-2 Years.

    - MalReynolds: Max, how much longer will Lisk stay at 5 LSK rewards per block?
    - Lisk (Max):
    This is more of community consensus question. The rewards per block
    decline is already written in the code it now comes to having it
    accepted by the consensus of the elected delegates.

    -
    Dont Stop: Do you have a better understanding or thought of the
    upcoming SDK? What are the fundamentals that the SDK will be created by?

    - Lisk (Max):
    Lisk in a way truly began this year (Because lack of ICO funding being
    held). We now are beginning to build a great and capatable team and have
    began dedicating 2-Hours, every day, Monday-Friday to have team
    meetings dicussing how we are going to about the development of the SDK.
    We are looking at it in all angles and are brainstorming how we can
    provide each diverse user what they need (Wether it be security,
    scability, or great user experience).

    - Pham: Max, What is your plan of SDK development? features? Steps to implement it? Any speculation on when it can be released?
    - Lisk (Max):
    I think that this brainstorming process (which shouldn't be
    underistamed) will likely take 2 more months. Then we will begin
    drafting up the architecture, then code, then test, then release
    fix-backs, and hopefully have something available for you all near the
    end of the year.

    - Forrest: Can we still expect the
    whitepaper by Q1 2017? Also do you plan to put the whitepaper on github
    and update when necessary?

    - Lisk (Max):
    My current understanding on whitepaper is that, within this blockchain
    community, it is used as a marketing tool for upcoming ICO's. We still
    can, and may, create one but the question will then be if we would like
    to write a normal whitepaper or a more sophisticated (Ex: Bitcoin,
    Ethereum) one. It all depends if we find the time to do this or somehow
    think its worth taking a developers time away from development and
    steering it towards creating a Lisk whitepaper.

    - Serge TV: Is it possible to create custom tokens on Lisk?
    - Lisk (Isabella): If you mean as a sidechain, then Yes, it is definitely possible.

    - Not My Name: If you are thinking of changing delegates is that going to be to more or less delegates?
    - Lisk (Team):
    More, if in any case, the change will be for the number of delegates to
    go up. Still, there are many things playing into this and it doesn't
    allow for a quick and simple change to be made without changing and
    advancing a few things, but in any case the delegate amount will rise.

    - Dont Stop: What is the priority, as of now, in the development area of Lisk?
    - Lisk (Max):
    Our priority is currently being divided into a few things. One of these
    priorities is continously working on the Lisk core everyday and helping
    advance and secure the network and on the other side it of course is
    the SDK.

    - Devide: What will be the verification
    process for dapps execution? Will every node verifiy all dapps
    computations or will this be diferrent?

    - Lisk (Isabella):
    The targeted goal for the blockchain application is to have all of the
    verifaction take place within the sidechain by their own delegates or
    chosen algorithm or, if their is no token, it will be verified by all
    other nodes. The mainchain will only verify out-transactions,
    registration transactions, or blockchain applications.

    -
    Dennis: What are the future plans for the development team? How many
    people are left to hire? What will be the size of the final team?

    - Lisk (Max & Joel):
    Currently, we have 5 Developers and 2 more coming in the next weeks.
    Although, we plan to have a team that fits every important aspect of
    Lisk so we, in the end, expect to have a team of 15-20 members here at
    Lisk.

    - Forrest: Will the block reward change 1 year after Community forging began?
    - Lisk (Isabella):
    The change in block reward is already coded into Lisk set as
    milestones. The next change is ecpected to happen around November 2017.

    - Forrest: Any update on the rebranding of Lisk?
    - Lisk (Max):
    This is one of my favorite subjects. Initially, we began looking all
    over the world for designers who would fit the task, and were met with a
    few challenges (Different timezone, language barriers, etc). So we
    decided to take a step back and shop locally for designers and found an
    amazing design agency that has experience in UX, design, and coding, we
    discussed what Lisk is and how it works and have contiously been having
    meetings about the rebranding. We, in fact, have a meeting with this
    agency on the 15th of February for our third meeting where we will
    discuss more about this rebranding step. Regarding the target date, we
    are looking at Q1 or Q2 of 2017.

    - Mitch Lisk: A good amount of lisk wallets are wallets of smaller holdings. What can be the role of Lisk pools in the future?
    - Lisk (Team): We are all okay with there being pools, it just cannot get to the point where there are too many of them.

    - Warren: What will happen to the ByteBalls that you have and will receive?
    - Lisk (Max):
    We have something very positive that we are going to do for the Lisk
    holders but, as of now, we cannot say exactly what we will do. We are
    awaiting advise from our lawyers.

    - Steve:
    Development seems to be really slow considering how much money was
    raised during the ICO. Blockchain technology is changing very fast. Do
    you think you are being too conservative with the funds?

    - Lisk (Team):
    We are a new starup, also a starup who has received their ICO funds a
    little bit over 40 days ago. It may seem slow but in reality we are
    making a lot of progress. We have added 3 developers in the past month
    and are in the process of adding more. We also don't believe that much
    has changed with the development progress in the blockchain industry,
    what you may refer to is the amount of upcoming projects but the thing
    is when these projects are established (After Launch) they work (and it
    may be slower) to release updates. We work to be consistent in releasing
    updates here at Lisk and feel confident that we are doing well and can
    continue this development strive for many years to come.

    -
    Dont Stop: What is happening/happened to the advisers Lisk added
    mid-late last year. Are they still receiving funds from the Adviser
    Fund?

    - Lisk (Max): They are still
    here. They received a one-time incentive share of Lisk in exchange for
    being our advisers. We also recently met up with them while on our
    United States Lisk Business Trip.

    -
    StaticInstance: Will certain parameters (Block time, algorithm, number
    of delegates, etc) need to be the same as the Mainchain or can it be
    custom?

    - Lisk (Isabella): The idea is
    to provide a modular SDK that allow developers to create their
    sidechain to their Liking. So overall we want to make Sidechains as
    customizable as possible.

    - Santiago: Isabella, you
    proposed reducing the allowed votes to 33, allowing 1 vote is POS while
    allowing 101 votes is DPOS, do you agree that whatever in the middle is
    just a gray area of POS and DPOS?

    - Lisk (Team):
    As of now its a proposal, a clearer message of my stance can be found
    on Github. In the end, we dont want to end up having a centralized
    network where one person can own the entire network. It also seems as if
    most have a understanding that DPOS and POS is something that is fixed
    to one standard, and this isn't the case. There are many variables to
    these algorithms creating the possibility of all projects having
    different forms of these algorithms implemented on their platform.

    - Warren: Isabella said the GUI will be removed. Why is it still being developed and why are we taking developers time for it?
    - Lisk (Isabella):
    Our main focus is definitely not on Lisk GUI. It is one of the more
    aged parts of code that we have that provides a fundamental mechanism
    for interfacing with the system so it is important to make some changes
    to advance in this area. Therefor we made a small improvement of
    searching by name when looking to vote for a delegate, which is huge.

    -
    Dont Stop: When will the upcoming Lisk statement be released and what
    day in the month has the Lisk team set to release all future monthly
    statements?

    - Lisk (Max): The plan is to release the transparency report once a month. We have the report of January being released next week.

    - Warren: What can Lisk be used for at the moment? until there are blokchain apps, why would someone want to buy or use Lisk?
    - Lisk (Team):
    As of now, as most of the other blockchains are about, Lisk holders are
    currently here as our supporters, awaiting for their rewards because of
    this. Still, later on down the road Lisk will of course be needed for
    blockchain development and will be used as payment for certain services.

    - Andreas: What do you guys think of the LIG meetup happening on the 20th Of Feb?
    - Lisk (Max & Joel):
    We think its excellent. You are all doing an amazing job and we are
    glad to hear of this. We feel this is what the delegation system can
    become.

    - Forrest: What is Lisk HQ Prioties number by 1, 2, 3 in terms of software development?
    - Lisk (Team):
    Priority #1 is the SDK. Priority #2 is CORE development. Priority #3
    Working around all the other things needing to be done to push Lisk
    forward (Marketing, PR, etc)

    - Dont Stop: Can we get a better understanding of Litecurve, its mission, and its intentions?
    - Lisk (Max):
    Lisk itself is the Lisk Foundation including 3 Board members of Oliver,
    Edo, Max. Lisk's mission is to make Lisk the leading, and only,
    blockchain application platform. While Litecurve GMbH was founded by
    Max, Oliver, Joel to work for Lisk as a contractor to offer development
    and other services. The reason for both Lisk and Litecurve was more so
    for legal purposes.

    - Davide: Will you, or any of you, come to the Turin Lisk Meetup?
    - Lisk (Isabella): I'll go. I'll try my best to attend.

    -
    Dont Stop: Isabella, as someone who develops for Lisk and has discussed
    the future state of Lisk. How Big do you genuinely see Lisk becoming,
    and, do you see it being in the TOP 5 blockchain platforms?

    - Lisk (Isabella): I think Lisk will certainly become one of the TOP 3 Platforms in the coming years.

    - Forrest: How urgently do you think changes need to be made to DPOS?
    - Lisk (Isabella):
    We're brainstorming right now. As or right now we have a open
    discussion on Github which everyone can join in. In regards to timeline,
    we don't have one yet. Just as the SDK we first need to brainstorm.

    - StaticInstance: Do you have a development process (Agile, scrum, etc)?
    - Lisk (Isabella): We are currently following a scrum process. But have more of a Hybrid process involving both.

    - Forrest: Are you guys being attentive to what other competitors are doing?
    - Lisk (Team):
    I'm not worried about it (Said firmly). I do research on all of the
    projects (Ardor, Rise, Shift, Ark) so we are very aware of what these
    projects are doing. But we are confident that we will come out on top as
    we have the resources and capacity to make it happen.

    - Jason: Have you applied for Lisk Trademark?
    - Lisk (Max): Yes.

    This
    concludes the entire Lisk Meeting. I certainly believe that this will
    help members, users, individuals have a great understanding of Lisk. I
    also feel as if it will surely make you confident in where Lisk will be
    in the coming years. This was a very fun meeting and I hope that you are
    all able to attend the next Live stream!

  •  Lisk release V 0.6.0

    Download:https://github.com/LiskHQ/lisk...

    Lisk 0.6.0 — A major uplift 

    Since 

    Lisk’s inception we have always had security and stability in mind. With the 0.6.0 release, we continue with this tradition. One major change of note is with NodeJS, the backbone of Lisk, which has been running on Node 0.12.x since release. While this has served us very well to date, it’s time for change as this branch is now discontinued and no longer receiving critical updates. Going forward Lisk will be built and run upon the Node 6.9.x release tree. The release of 0.6.0 marks this major upgrade of the core software, moving from NodeJS v0.12.18 to v6.9.4.

    Why Node 6 instead of Node 7? We chose to go with Node 6 over Node 7 for a few reasons. Very simply, Node 6 is deemed the Long Term Support release, while Node 7 is considered cutting edge. While having the fantastic features that Node 7 offers, we prefer to have stability, security and long term support. The second reason is that Node 6 will provide us years of value until the next official LTS release occurs. If you want to know more about NodeJS LTS releases, please visit the official NodeJS LTS Schedule. Discontinuation of support for FreeBSD and ARM architectures. With a heavy heart we must announce the discontinuation of support for ARM and FreeBSD distributions. ARM is plagued by many issues when it comes to compiling NodeJS 6, the same goes for FreeBSD and the compilers used on that system. While we would really like to continue supporting FreeBSD and the ARM architecture, it’s just not feasible with the size of our team. A brief survey of peers also indicates that these efforts are not well placed. Therefore, we have decided to discontinue these platforms. In the future we plan to revisit these platforms and support them again, but for the time being we will focus our efforts on the following platforms: Linux 32bit, Linux x86_64 and Darwin. Other changes. In this release there have been many fantastic changes to Lisk Core and Lisk UI. For Lisk UI, we have removed the Application directory as mentioned in the blog post about the SDK. Additionally, we have added some well sought after features to the forging section of the web wallet. Now you can see your forged totals for some common time periods, and even search for delegates inside of the client to make voting much easier!

    On the back end, we have made huge improvements to our Continuous Integration processes. While these may not be visible as features of the code, these changes serve a vital role in confirming that the code works as expected after every pull request. If you are interested to see our CI tests, or just want to know more, you can visit theLisk project on Travis CI to see them in action. Finally, we have made a significant amount of bug fixes to the code base. A complete list of changes can be seen in the release log on GitHub. If you have any questions about these changes feel free to reach out to us. Summary The 0.6.0 release has been a long time coming and we are proud to make it generally available. As part of our Agile processes we plan to release on a more regular basis as we finish up our development sprints. If you want to get involved with our release process, feel free to reach out on Lisk.chat and we will discuss adding you to our Alpha Testing group. From the Lisk HQ, The Lisk Development Team. About the Author Isabella Dell is System Architect for LiskHQ and played a pivotal role in the development process since the launch of Lisk’s Mainnet.



  • Cleaning up our GitHub Organization and enhancing Documentation

    After revealing our plans
    for the Lisk SDK; we are preparing the next steps in order to start
    moving forward in terms of development. This involves archiving
    deprecated repositories and increasing visibility on the ones we
    actively work on. We have also consolidated and enhanced our
    documentation as you can read below.

    A new, temporary place for documentation

    Started as a community effort the Lisk Wiki has developed into an extensive compendium for information regarding the Lisk ecosystem. We at the Lisk Foundation have set ourselves the goal to expand on this effort as much as possible. Consequently, we have moved all of the Lisk documentation to it. This includes our API, handbooks, technical reference, installation and upgrade guides.

    For the future, we are researching different solutions which offer greater flexibility, features and a more user friendly approach. We will provide an update on that effort, once we know more.

    Explaining the Lisk Protocol

    The Lisk core is an extensive package of code and functionality. It’s based on the latest LTS version of Node.JS, uses military-grade cryptography and utilises PostgreSQL for the blockchain persistence layer.

    The blockchain itself is composed of blocks, which itself are composed of a header and a list of confirmed transactions. These blocks are being generated every 10 seconds within the Lisk network using DPoS consensus.

    Cryptographic tokens are held in accounts which are secured with a PKI and there are multiple options to enhance security even further, either with a second passphrase, multi-signature or both.

    Additionally, there is a total of six functional transaction types and three more types which are currently working, but will be completely re-designed this year.

    All of this, including network rewards and peers communication, are described in our Lisk Technical Protocol Reference which you can also find on the Lisk Wiki.

    Archiving deprecated repositories

    As part of the consolidation effort, we have created a new GitHub account called LiskArchive, which will house all deprecated repositories.

    The deprecated repositories include:

    Fresh example applications and documentation will accompany the re-designed applications SDK, which is currently a work-in-progress.

  • Private key generation on Lisk; are we affected by the latest Bitcore issues?

     on February, the 23rd 2017and approximately one year ago, on February, the 25th 2016 issues were raised regarding the bitcore-js library, which investigated private key generation across different platforms.

    A 12-word mnemonic passphrase is used to generate a key pair, which consists of both a private and public key, which can represent an account within Lisk (or Bitcoin). The bitcore-js library provides the necessary functionalities to generate this key pair out of the mnemonic passphrase.

    In the referenced GitHub issues, it was noted that the bitcore-js private key generation eliminates leading zeros when creating the private keys, which results 31 byte string instead of the expected 32 bytes. This behaviour leads to different hash outputs on different machines, even though the same mnemonic passphrase is used. This could prevent account access on different machines.

    Lisk is not affected by this. We are using the bitcore-js library to generate a 12-word mnemonic passphrase using the front-end. However, the private key generation is done by the NaCl library which is not affected by this bug.

    The library explicitly demands: “The input must be 32 bytes long.”

    As stated by Brian Warner. “Ed25519 keys start life as a 32-byte (256-bit) uniformly random binary seed such as might be produced by sha256, or better yet, PBKDF2 or scrypt.” More information about js-nacl can be foundhere.

    In summary, the bug that led to creating different hashes by bitcore-js is found in the generation of private keys for solutions that use the library for cryptography. Lisk uses bitcore-js for the random 12-word mnemonic generation only, not for private key generation, therefore this bug does not apply to Lisk.

  • The Future is Bright for Lisk

    Last night, one of our advisors officially resigned from his position on the Board of Advisors for the Lisk Foundation. We (Max and Oliver) would like to begin this post by thanking our former advisor, Charles Hoskinson, for the sage advice and counsel he provided us over these past few months.

    We would like to also use this opportunity to update the community on the positive relationship between Lisk and its Board of Advisors, an important circle of influencers and leaders who will continue to provide us with wisdom and experience.

    Our views on advisors

    We believe there are two types of advisors: active and passive. Active advisors constantly contact the management board and advise as they see fit. Passive advisors wait until the management board asks for advice, for the time being they therefore stay silent. We are lucky to have advisors who have taken an active role in providing us with counsel, even during the times when we made a conscious decision to go in a different direction.

    The whole team at Lisk has been working hard every day because we sincerely believe in the long-term success of our project. Sometimes, we decided to opt against what we felt was a short-term benefit because, after consideration, we felt that the resources could be better spent later on. Our reasoning is that one could not build a house without a strong foundation to support it, and until ours was in place we did not feel it would be right to make certain investments.

    The good news is that by the end of last year, and with the help of our legal team, with the great effort of our active Lisk team, and with the support of our community, we were able to establish the Lisk Foundation in Switzerland. This year, the project has been vastly accelerated, and we have the funding and the core team to produce extraordinary work.

    We are here to stay … for a long time

    It’s worth repeating: Lisk is here to stay, and for a very long time. We have made a commitment to a mass community to build an extremely high quality product knowing that this can’t happen overnight. As a result, we treat our funds with the greatest care while simultaneously ensuring that we maintain an optimal pace for development. Since the formation of the Foundation, we’ve been able to take advantage of our station to position Lisk for growth.

    Some community members have complained about our decision to attempt to establish a gGmbH, stating that this process wasted three months of our time. Though we understand their thinking, in retrospect this was the best choice we had at the time. We were in constant contact with German lawyers to set it up and had we completed the process, we would have established a precedent in Germany which anyone could replicate — an important step for the ecosystem. Moreover, at that time last year, we were not in contact with the attorneys we eventually hired in Switzerland and, moreover, without permitted access to the ICO funds, we didn’t have the monetary resources to go in that direction either. However, once it increasingly became clear that the country Germany isn’t progressive enough, we made the big decision to set the Foundation in Switzerland — a very good decision at the end.

    Here is a brief timeline of the major events since our ICO concluded:

    • 21.03.2016: The Lisk ICO ended.
    • 24.05.2016: The Lisk network launches.
    • xx.06.2016: gGmbH materials ready, started talking with the government (Germany).
    • 01.08.2016: Oliver and Max move to Berlin.
    • xx.09.2016: gGmbH materials finished, frustration with the government (Germany).
    • 01.10.2016: Switched to a Swiss legal firm.
    • 16.11.2016: Commercial register entry of the Lisk Foundation.
    • 30.11.2016: The Lisk network stabilizes.
    • 19.12.2016: Lisk Foundation fully established and ready to go.

    During the three “lost months”, we constantly improved the Lisk core and user interface, introduced Lisk Nano, maintained the Lisk Explorer and various resources, established the lightcurve GmbH, and searched for office space in Berlin.

    With Oliver’s fantastic work and extraordinary familiarity with the code base, we successfully stabilized the code towards the end of 2016. If we had too many new developers on board at the time, Lisk development would probably have progressed more slowly on an individual basis during that time because they would have to study the code base first, before they can jump deep into coding.

    For new developers of an existing code base, it’s easier to study a stable and modular platform, rather than needing to make heavy changes everywhere to make it stable subsequently.

    In the future, people will know of the Lisk that was born in December

    From everything we have seen, one can conclude that December was the true beginning for Lisk. From this point, our progress accelerated dramatically.

    Looking back, we released Lisk v0.5.0 on the 30th November, Lisk Nano v0.1.2 on the 2nd December, Lisk v0.5.1 on the 8th December and Lisk Explorer 1.0.0 on the 12th December.

    The lightcurve GmbH, which was started by Oliver and Max to lead the development of Lisk, was also actively hiring simultaneously. Around that time, we hired two freelance developers, one starting in December and another in January. Since then, two more developers have begun working on Lisk as well. Yet one more will be coming “online” in April, with another two are currently in late negotiations to join in. If you do the math, we’ll have seven developers working full-time next month, with a high likelihood of at least nine developers by May.

    While our development team is actively growing, we also starting to look for other important positions to fill. For example, we’re evaluating hiring additional contributors for important verticals like legal, marketing, community, documentation, administration and support.

    Ramping up communications

    Some have also made hay by criticizing our communications to date — and they were right to say so. We were so busy making things happen that we struggled in January to report our progress, but we’ve swiftly learned from our mistakes and have ramped it up for February and for the future. In a short span of time, we have distributed a substantial financial report, published seven blog posts, issued a press release, conducted a 1+ hour long community meeting through a live stream, and maintain a consistent presence on the Lisk.Chat andr/Lisk.

    Soon, we will introduce further changes and improvements on the methods with which we communicate and improve how we organize our community. Expect major changes to our forum, added focus on r/Lisk, and reports you’ll find far less boring.

    Moving forward

    We’ve always maintained a strategy with our employees, freelancers and contributors to ensure they’re not misused or misappropriated for hype. We will treat our advisory board the same way.

    We’re currently in the middle of significant change — and it’s been a change for good. Our legal structure is complete and running smoothly, our team is coming together, a positive company culture is being formed, we are working together with important contractors, we’re constantly streamlining our internal and external communications, and our development moves faster than ever before while our products increasingly become better and better.

    All the best,

    Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows, Lisk Foundation

  • Lisk Meetups Berlin! Bucharest! Torino! Toulouse! Moscow!

    The Lisk community have begun spreading the word on the Lisk Platform worldwide. In the past weeks there have been several speeches on meetups and conferences throughout the world to spread blockchain awareness and grow the Lisk community. Members of the Lisk team have visited some of these events in support of their presentation. On this blog post, we’re highlighting the presentations from the Berlin Blockchain Meetup by the lightcurve team, the BucharestJS meetup by Stefan Neagu, the Torino Bitcoin Meetup — Lisk Serata by Andrea f Speziale and the Lisk Italian Group, the JavaScript&Co meetup by Pierre CAVIN and the Blockchain Technologies Conference by Denis Smirnov.

    lightcurve: Lisk Berlin Blockchain Meetup

    We had our inaugural Lisk Berlin meetup on March 9th at the beautiful WeWork at Sony Center. Special thanks to Tobias Schwarz, Max Kordek, Maciej Baj and Oliver Beddows for attending. The second meetup is just around the corner, as we’re aiming for early April, sign up for it now.

    Some impressions towards the end of the Berlin meetup.

    Stefan Neagu: Romania BucharestJS Meetup

    I personally attended this meetup as it lined up with the leading conference in decentralization (d10e). Stefan Neagu had an excellent presentation in explaining the Lisk Platform in an introductory tone to all of the attendees.
