Lisk (LSK) is a Javascript platform for decentralized applications & sidechains. Lisk enables developers to code DApps by using Javascript— one of the most popular programming languages on Github.


Lisk (LSK) was launched on the 24th of May, 2016. It was a fork of Crypti that started with an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) to determine the initial distribution and raise development funds.


Lisk is supported by DPoS or Delegated-Proof-of-Stake algorithm, that was created by BitShares. The difference between the regular PoS (Proof of Stake) and DPoS is that in DPoS, only the top 101 delegates that were determined by the voting weight of the voters, are actively forging and securing the network.

No more activity to show.
