What is Lisk ?
Lisk is a blockchain-application-platform that makes it easier for developer to create their own decentralized-projects.
Lisk tries to make blockchain-technology more accessible to developer by creating a Software-Developer-Kit for decentralized applications. In contrast to other blockchain-networks, common programming languages (JavaSkript) can be used to develop decentralized applications in Lisk. Therefore, developer can easily create new crypto-projects with their programming skills.
The goal is to give peoplethe right tools, full control, but also a secure environment to develop entirely new applications and business models in the cryptoworld.
The Lisk-network is based on a mainchain and multiple sidechains. Developer can create, distribute and manage their own sidechain (also with a custom token), which is linked to the Lisk-main-network. The cryptocurrency LSK is a crypto token that fuels the Lisk-network.
