Nano: Access Your Projects on the Go

Since this “Nano” client removes the requirement to sync with the blockchain, the full functionality of the regular client will not be available. However, the Nano client allows users to access the basic tools of the platform, enabling them to do essential work on the go.

The Nano client can be used for creating Lisk accounts, as well as sending, receiving and viewing LSK transactions. Nano 0.1.0 is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux.

The Lisk platform launched in early 2016, bringing in a large amount of funding and excitement from the cryptocurrency community. This project aims to provide a Java-based blockchain app development environment that can be used by developers from all backgrounds, eliminating the need to learn new, blockchain-specific coding languages.

To date, according to the project’s website, there have been over 14,000 bitcoins worth of LSK exchanged, with close to 4,000 people participating on the platform.

The project’s website features five blockchain applications developed on the platform, their services ranging from ecommerce to “proof of existence.”

About Lisk

This project is a blockchain application platform that offers JavaScript development tools to deploy sidechains and build decentralized applications on top of them. It comes with the ability to connect various different (decentralized) technologies to enable developers to build useful applications for the real world. Lisk was started earlier this year by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows.

Blockchain development platform Lisk now has its crypto-token LSK listed on ShapeShift, Yuanbao and CoinPayments.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR Buzz. Bitcoinist is not affiliated with the firms represented by Bitcoin PR Buzz and is not responsible for their products and/or services.

According to the development team, adoption has been “steadily growing” since the launch, gaining interest from “payment processors and online merchants.”

Now supported by ShapeShift.io, a highly-popular cryptocurrency exchange, traders can buy and sell LSK, instantly converting it to and from other cryptocurrencies. Changer.com and Changelly.com support LSK as well, providing exchange services similar to ShapeShift.

CEO Max Kordek recently visited China to meet with exchanges to talk about expanding LSK’s availability on the crypto-markets. Yuanbao.com and Jubi.com, two of the largest altcoin exchanges in China, decided to support LSK after talking with Kordek.

In addition the the growth in Chinese adoptoin, Polish exchange BitBay.net has added support for several LSK currency pairs, including LSK/USD, LSK/BTC and LSK/EUR.

In another big advancement for the blockchain development project, payment processor CoinPayments has started supported LSK, allowing people to use the currency for online transactions “with a myriad of online shops, all of which are ready to accept LSK.”

These new avenues of LSK acceptance are additions to an already long list of exchanges supporting the currency, such as Poloniex.com, Bittrex.com, YoBit.net, BitMEX.comLivecoin.net, OpenLedger.io, Cryptomic.com, Bloombit.com, and ChameleonBit.trade.

The project says that Poloniex has been particularly innovative in its LSK integration, adding a LSK/ETH pair to their exchange, a move Lisk says is “unprecedented.”

(June 2, 2016, Aachen, Germany) – Lisk (www.lisk.io), the blockchain application platform for decentralized services written in JavaScript, has announced the addition of IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson, Boulder, Colorado, and serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist Steven Nerayoff, New York, as senior advisors according to Lisk CEO Max Kordek.

Disclaimer: This is a press release. Bitcoinist is not responsible for this firm’s products and/or services. 

“We are extremely pleased to announce Charles Hoskinson and Steven Nerayoff as our senior advisors, which accelerates Lisk product growth by giving valuable input on the technology and startup methodology,” said Kordek.  “Charles and Steven were two of the most prominent individuals responsible for the phenomenal success of Ethereum. There is no one else in the world like Charles who has the vision to build a successful cryptography project and Steven, who has an invaluable entrepreneur insight after founding six companies and being a venture capitalist. Steven knows exactly what a startup needs to become a success. With their advice, we are dedicated to creating a blockchain application juggernaut.”

Hoskinson founded Invictus Innovations and created BitShares which is the first cryptocurrency utilising Delegated Proof of Stake, a consensus algorithm also used by Lisk. He is a founder of Ethereum and served as its initial CEO from December, 2013, until June, 2014. Hoskinson’s major contributions to smart contract platform include designing the legal structure, crowdsale model, and building a global network of evangelists and developers which continues to this day. He worked on the original cryptographic design and is greatly responsible for what it is today. Hoskinson is currently the CEO of the Hong Kong based Input Output HK, which hosts one of the largest cryptocurrency research divisions in the world.

“Whether it be Bitshares, Ethereum or Cardano, I only work with projects that satisfy three criteria.” said Hoskinson. “First, they have to promote a cascading disruption in an industry. Second, the technology has to be interesting. Third, the team has to be honest and hardworking. Lisk satisfies all three of these criteria and I’m glad to be advising the team as they develop a vision and execute on a roadmap throughout the coming months and years.”

Steven Nerayoff, Esq. LL.M. is a prolific serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist and attorney, having founded six companies and inventor on 20 patents.  Nerayoff is currently the CEO and founder of Maple Ventures, a venture capital firm with a heavy focus on blockchain related technologies.  He is also the Founder and CEO of Cloudparc, a patented next generation artificial intelligence company in the smart city and Internet of Things sectors.

Nerayoff advised and contributed to Ethereum from its earliest days, created the initial legal framework and co-drafted the crowdsale model which set the standard for all other crowdsales to follow.

“I saw the gargantuan potential in Ethereum very early, and I was pleased to be part of their meteoric rise,” said Nerayoff.  “I see similar potential in a very different aspect of the blockchain’s potential with Lisk, and I look forward to working with this incredible team to fulfill the potential of consumer blockchain applications in much the same way Ethereum is now realizing the potential of financial blockchain and smart contract solutions.”

Being leaders in their respective fields Hoskinson and Nerayoff offer an invaluable pool of advice in technologic, strategic, and management decisions for the Lisk team. With their guidance Lisk is on the way to become the go-to platform for blockchain applications and provider of decentralized services.

Lisk Launch: First ‘Modular’ Cryptocurrency Hits the Market

Source: bitcoin

Lisk

Lisk has finally launched, deploying what it calls the “first truly scalable cryptocurrency,” following a $6.5 million USD crowdsale. This platform aims to enable developers from diverse backgrounds to build blockchain applications by supporting JavaScript compatibility.

Disclaimer: This article was provided by Bitcoin PR Buzz. Bitcoinist is not affiliated with the firms represented by Bitcoin PR Buzz and is not responsible for their products and/or services.

Branded as the “first modular cryptocurrency utilizing sidechains,” Lisk launched v0.3.0 on May 24, 2016. This project seeks to provide scalability to a digital asset ecosystem by using sidechains to allow app development on independent blockchains attached to a main chain. With sidechains, developers can build and experiment with new blockchain apps without bloating the main blockchain with test transactions. Thus, Lisk believes that it has created a system that can both serve as a high-volume transaction network as well as a platform for innovation and experimentation.

By supporting JavaScript compatibility, the platform allows developers to build in one of the most popular programming languages. With Lisk, people with all different programming backgrounds will reportedly have access to its blockchain development ecosystem without having to learn new coding languages or techniques.

CEO and co-founder Max Kordek says that “Lisk is utterly unique.” He continues, “There is no public cryptocurrency platform which allows developers to easily deploy their own blockchain and build a JavaScript blockchain app on it.”

This project is funded by a four-week crowdsale that took place between February and March 2016. During the crowdsale, the platform raised over 14,000 bitcoins and 80 million crypti, bringing funding to a total of $6.5 million USD. Kordek says that he and his team plan to use the ICO money to fund continuing development and promotion of the platform. In accordance with this plan, the team has hired PR firm Transform PR to raise public interest about the Lisk project.

Kordek reported that the Lisk price during the ICO was at $0.08 USD, but that a different exchange had been trading “IOU’s” for the coin at $1.70 USD apiece. With a wide spread of possible price points, Kordek says that the coin may keep its position in the top 5 cryptocurrencies, but that he isn’t totally certain.

Expressing his excitement about the launch, Kordek says, “This will give millions of developers the ability to create their own sidechains, particularly around consumer applications, including games, social networks and the Internet of Things, but the same core functionality can also be used to develop and scale business applications.

About Lisk

Lisk is the first modular cryptocurrency, as well as the first public cryptocurrency to use sidechains and first to provide an easy-to-use SKD for developers of the world’s most popular programming language, JavaScript. Following one of the most successful public crowdsales in history (more than 14,000 BTC), Lisk released its first public blockchain, v0.3.0 in late May 2016.
