Lisk week in Review – 2
Many news came up this week, but the most important one was the LiskJS event, planned since months. Featuring also: Lisk Builders Program, LSK listed on Kraken, List of existing PoC apps and delegates’ overview.
The event, held on 19th November, was divided in two parts: in the early afternoon attendees joined a Lisk.bike Workshop and then had the chance to apply the Lisk SDK to a real-world blockchain use-case. Everyone who did the workshop got a free Raspberry Pi and some sensors. Then, the coding challenges awarded the top 3 projects. Francesco, Sander and 1st place winner Jonathan received each a smart backpack and total value of €2,500 in LSK tokens.
The guys behind the #LiskBike proof-of-concept are running their own workshops – teaching our attendees how to create a #blockchain-based bike rental system. Check them out here: https://t.co/ISjJ15QZMq#LiskJS2019 pic.twitter.com/PvL7cxSkSF

“Thanks everybody for the great event, great vibe, lots of developers and certainly something to repeat. Really feels like the beginning of a next phase”
Jurre, Moosty team
“Lisk.js was fantastic. This community has been through some hard times in the past but it’s only strengthened our bonds. From community to HQ staff, it’s been an honor and a joy to work along side you. Let’s keep it going my friends!”
“Yesterday’s lisk.js event was great! Looking forward to the event next year. Nice to have met and talked to so many cool people at HQ and community.”
“I met people who traveled from Italy, France, Spain, America, Brasil, the Netherlands, Poland and of course Germany.”
Stellardynamic, part of Sidechain Solutions, revealed Chronicler, a new Lisk-focused project. There will be an airdrop for all Lisk holders participating in voting and a portion of the Moracle tokens will be addressed to Stellardynamic voters. Full report is expected to be released on Monday.
Other presentations from LiskHQ revealed the next goals : full research focus on interoperability, a better fee system and a new consensus algorithm, simplify the purchase of LSK within wallets, Lisk Builders Program and a Lisk Center Berlin in 2020. (source: Lisk Highlights and GNY)
