Lisk researchers propose new supporting LIP
Andreas Kendziorra, a Lightcurve researcher, proposed another supporting LIP as the date for Lisk.js draws further closer. This LIP is for the roadmap objective “Enhance signature scheme”. This LIP specifies how to use BLS signatures within Lisk, including compact aggregate BLS signatures. Although as a supporting LIP, the Enhance signature scheme LIP doesn’t specify any concrete applications of BLS signatures, nor does it impose any protocol changes, it bothers how to create and validate compact aggregate signatures BLS. More specifically, the core purpose of this supporting LIP arises where multisignatures for large sets of signers are required, but the size of concatenated Ed25519 signatures is too disadvantageous. For this situation, cross-chain transactions for a trustless interoperability solution are likely to be adopted.
New updates on Lisk Desktop Wallet and Lisk Service
For v2.0.0-beta.3 – Change API to support Lisk SDK v5 API / Change to new address; Lisk Co-founder Oliver Beddows reported that 17 tasks had been completed with just one task remaining. As soon as that gets completed, QA will be initiated immediately. Lisk Foundation also aims to release both alpha.6 and alpha.7 in preparation for public beta.3.
Regarding v2.0.0-beta.4 – Support multisignature transactions / Remove second passphrase support update; Lisk team says have partially completed development for this release, but it remains paused due to earlier rescheduling. It hopes to commence development once beta.3 is released.
Lisk service development update covered development around v0.3.0 – Change API to support Lisk SDK v5 API / Implement blockchain data store. The team has completed development around “Implement blockchain data store” and “Change API to support Lisk SDK v5 API”. Meanwhile, the QA process into the 2nd round (alpha.1) is still in progress, having closed five issues with four remaining. The Lisk team hopes to release the public beta.0 once QA (alpha.1) is completed.
Aldo Suhartono Putra interview in Lisk Builders’ Program
In this edition of the Lisk Builder Program interview, Aldo shares his thoughts and experiences of developing his first blockchain application Collabolancer, an open-source proof of concept decentralised freelancing marketplace. The Lisk-based dapp enables seamless collaboration between employers, worker(s), and solver(s). Aldo narrated that he discovered while writing his thesis back then in 2107. Transitioning into becoming a blockchain developer, Aldo joined the Lisk Builders’ Program to help turn his abstract concepts into reality. Having been a freelancer in the past and recounting some of his bad experiences, such as client fraud and high fees in reducing costs and withdrawals, Aldo resolved to use blockchain to solve this problem for many other freelancers experiencing similar mishaps. Hence, his motivation to join the Lisk Builder’s Program.
But it appears he is not just interested in only developing a freelancing dapp. Aldo has his eye on the burgeoning DeFi industry and the recent buzz in NFTs. He hopes to leverage Lisk’s easy-to-use SDK to build a DeFi dapp that could further address the problems the various solutions within the DeFi industry are out to solve.
Benzinga Crypto features Max Kordek in an interview
Benzinga Crypto, the cryptocurrency arm of Benzinga, a media and data platform for investors, recently featured Max Kordek in an interview. Co-founder and CEO Kordek, while responding to the hosts’ questions, shared how easy it is for builders to leverage Lisk’s developer SDK to build dapps for any type of industry. He further shared how Lisk has continued to evolve since 2016 after its establishment.
