About Lisk

Lisk is an open-source blockchain application platform and was founded by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows in 2016 and raised over 14,000 Bitcoin (BTC) in its initial coin offering, making it the most successful German crowdfund in history. With a goal of making blockchain technology accessible for everyone, Lisk’s software development kit allows developers to build blockchain applications in JavaScript, the world’s most widely used programming language. 

Lisk is an industry leader in blockchain interoperability and will allow for the deployment of side chains onto the Lisk blockchain, enabling blockchain applications to scale while still connecting to the wider Lisk ecosystem. 

The Lisk network is operated using a highly efficient delegated proof-of-stake consensus algorithm, which is secured by democratically elected delegates and maintains a significantly lower energy consumption than proof-of-work networks, such as Bitcoin.
