Lisk is a decentralized blockchain platform that brings Javascript to the cloud. A continuation of Crypti, Lisk seeks to be a competitor for every other blockchain, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and BitShares by bringing storage, anonymous transactions, social networking, and many more possible applications to a decentralized cloud service. Unlike most blockchains, however, Lisk does not use a classic Proof-of-Work or Proof-of-Stake system. Rather, up to 101 delegates (who qualify by giving hash power, named “forgers” rather than miners) are elected by users to represent the main chain and secure the network. Active delegates earn blockchain rewards and distribute them. This is called a Delegated Proof-of-Stake, a democratic model coined by BitShares co-founder Dan Larimer.

Lisk allows custom tokens, immutable side chains, network bridging (to connect to other blockchains), and has a consensus algorithm to ensure good distribution of resources. Applications are leveraged on the network with the LSK token, much like Ethereum’s ETH being used as “gas.” Lisk’s applications will allow for a high degree modularity, in that app features can be wired in and recycled from various Lisk services, as well as applications on other blockchains like Bitcoin or IPFS. Lisk will have its own decentralized app store on the network as well.

The Lisk platform is still in its early days. By the end of the year and into next year expect to start hearing a lot about this one. Stay tuned!

And I’ve known about it since it was worth $1.00… Ugh…
