Introduction To Lisk Lisk is a media darling because of projects of various hype being developed on its platform. It’s a decentralized applications playground. If cryptocurrency were a video game, this would be the equivalent of the Nintendo Switch securing exclusive publishing rights for blockbuster games like Overwatch, Madden, or League of Legends. The little guy can win sometimes, and the Lisk Foundation is pushing for Lisk Meetups, and strategically developing products like Lisk Academy based on its blockchain network. Lisk was created by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows as a fork of Crypti back in 2016. Several key members of Ethereum’s original team are reportedly working on the Lisk team, and it secured key partnerships that make it a blockchain network to watch. Lisk recently undertook a major rebranding effort, as a result of which it has a cleaner and less cluttered look based on a vision to provide a blockchain platform that can be used and developed by a wide range of potential blockchain creators, not just developers. This could bring Blockchain applications development to the masses. Before diving into more wonky info on the Lisk network, let’s take a look at the Lisk LSK coin.
The Front- and Back-end of Everything Software developers are fully aware that every app has a front end and back end. In fact, polished ones have many sides to them. By developing side-chained apps (which we discuss in more detail in the ONT intro), Lisk is a scalable platform for developing decentralized applications that can handle anything a large company like Microsoft can throw at it. Lisk has a healthy (for Reddit) discussion thread on Reddit that tracks many aspects of its development. Many smart contract networks have a lot of hype behind them because of strong coding. Not every platform has the strategic partnerships Lisk does though. The modular approach of the Lisk blockchain means it’s a powerful tool that’s in the right hands. The ability to build fast, scalable platforms powers the value of LSK, which many believe will hold steady (or gain value) over long terms. It’s not fully immune to crypto industry crashes, but it won’t be hit as hard and will recover quickly. As adoption of the Lisk network increases, Lisk cryptocurrency coins will continue to hold value. It’ll eventually spawn new, creative crypto collectibles and disruptive blockchain implementations from startups. Lisk has the kind of support that 99 percent of the crypto industry can only wish for, which isn’t always blatantly obvious by staring at value charts.
