Lisk: A Decentralized Sidechain Development Platform
Blockchain has become popular lately to almost all industry type because of its openness, decentralized and authority-free features. However, there are some restrictions on some blockchains that may restrict their full potential. Enter Lisk, the blockchain-based application platform that enables one to develop a variety of apps, and assist them with their customized blockchains.
What Is Lisk?
Developers work notably hard and are often at the impulse of centralized platforms like Google Play and Apples App Store. These large actualities get the lion’s share of the recognition and revenues often neglecting developers incompetent to make ends meet. Lisk intends to build a fairer platform for decentralized apps enabling developers to get a more significant share of the pie.
How Lisk Work?
In early 2016, after many years associating within the Blockchain industry, Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows noticed a need of developer adoption. With the insight to make Blockchain technology more accessible, they imagined a Blockchain framework which accelerates and simplifies development.
The Lisk Foundation established itself the purpose of encouraging and teaching entrepreneurs and developers alike. The ultimate objective is to bring expertise into the Blockchain industry by empowering developers to build the decentralized future with our SDK. At this moment, they will provide an easy entry to take people from the purpose to the product.
Other solutions are either single Blockchain based or are tailored for private Blockchains. Lisk tries to offer the best of both worlds. The Lisk mainchain provides assurance and security while sidechains are used to have unlimited versatility.
This way, Lisk advances developers an environment where they have full control to build their Blockchain network as a sidechain but don’t have to defy the complexity of producing a Blockchain network from scratch.
Lisk has not been without its challenges along the way. Yet notwithstanding this, it has developed into a real project that grows more and more confidence with each milestone achieved.
A partnership with Microsoft in 2016 gave a chance for Lisk to implement “Blockchain as a Service” through Azure as well as any industry notice.
One significant, recent development was the choice for a rebrand. Hiring a brand strategy agency and professional designers indicate diligent builders of not only a Blockchain app platform but, a brand. This relaunch has since happened, and it’s secure to state that the rebranding has primarily succeeded with a much more professional looking presentation which is key to bringing new investors and talent alike.

Outside of business, he is intensely passionate about science fiction.
Oliver Beddows – Vice President/CTO and Founder
Beddows has twelve years background in the development field. Like several other blockchain projects, he noticed that this kind of technology could be a powerful tool to give the world a more equitable place. He saw that most blockchain platforms were far too complicated and there was an opportunity to bring developers into space with existing skills.
