Lisk Centers In The World: How Lisk Is Boosting Blockchain Adoption Through Physical Hubs
Reading the recent announcements, we understand that the Lisk community is working to physically colonize 2 continents: Europe and Asia.
These initiatives are sponsored and supported by the Lisk Foundation, but it’s important to highlight that both of them are lead by independent groups. And this is good, because we know that today Lightcurve and the Foundation are driving the development of Lisk, so these hubs exponentially increase the level of resilience of the project. The community is already decentralized online, but till now the occasions to bring the relationships offline are only the meetups.
These physical competence centers come up not only as business centers with office facilities, but to provide training, networking and consulting in blockchain field, helping aspiring entrepreneurs to move from a concept to a real product.
The Elite Center, lead by Elite delegates group, is located in Xiamen, China and few days ago the Elite Center Tokyo celebrated its opening with the first meetup. The geographic area is not causal: Asia is the region with the biggest crypto exchanges and the crypto adoption is huge, as Japan granted cryptocurrency industry self-regulatory status.
During the meetup the organizers showed a video from Mak Kordek, that believes that EliteCenter will play an important role in the outbreak of LISK ecology. The event hosted also many speakers: Yuji Hosoe, the Tokyo incubator operation manager of EliteCenter; Eileen, CMO of EliteX Asia and David Zhang, CEO of BTCBOX Exchange.
