BACKGROUND

Whitepaper Summary
The LISK team did a very thorough and professional job on their whitepaper. LISK is clear and informative on their technology, their objectives, and their roadmap.
Problem Solved
LISK’s platform makes it easier for users with a certain set of skills to utilise blockchain and it advantages.

The goal of the LISK team is to create an entire plug and play system that allows developers to do everything from design, development, and publish, all from within one platform. By utilising the LISK ecosystem, developers can quickly deploy their JavaScript apps to LISK Hosting & Storage Nodes, gain a listing in the LISK Dapp Store, and give immediate access to LISK Compute Nodes for execution of the code. All of this is done while being backed by the integrity and security of the LISK side chain consensus functionality.

All of these cloud functions are run by the users and LISK delegates who are paid through a built-in invoice system (or by the network itself in the case of delegates) and paid in LISK or BTC. They have created a one stop shop for application development that provides a cutting edge, affordable, and forward-thinking solution.

Competitive Edge
The difference between LISK and its competitors is LISK requires its developers to use JavaScript for writing dApps, instead of Solidity (similar to JavaScript) and Serpent (similar to Python).

The concept is different in the sense that these blockchain apps are not supposed to run on the main chain, rather, they are required to be deployed on their own network of a chain called “side chains”. The idea of side chains allows for managing scalability that other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin struggle with.

Development Roadmap
LISK has divided its roadmap into five phases:

Conception: The conception phase is where the main objective is to create a stable and robust platform along with basic development tools.

Resiliency: This phase will mean the beginning of a renewal process of the entire platform. The platform will undergo drastic improvements in terms of performance, ease of use, and features.

Expansion: In the expansion phase there will be support added for intelligent contracts and third-party technologies.

Ascent: This phase will prepare LISK to be used for the business sector. To support business and financial applications LISK will undergo further optimisation with security features and improved scalability.

Eternity: In the eternity phase a decentralized vote mechanism will be introduced to encourage the active participation of the LISK community in ecosystem activities.

INITIAL COIN OFFERING (ICO)

LISK conducted an ICO in early-2016 that raised 14,079 BTC and 80,696,177 XCR which totalled about $6.15 million at the time of the ICO closing. A total of 100 million LISK will be distributed.
