Full blog on Lisk Interoperability published
After numerous researches, documentation and several LIPs publication, and in-depth review at the just concluded Lisk.js 2021 conference, Lisk Foundation has now published a full blog detailing its proposed scalable and decentralized interoperability solution for the Lisk ecosystem. The blog details Lisk Interoperability around eight roadmap objectives. These roadmap objectives were as follows:
- Define cross-chain messaging protocol
- Define side-chain registration and lifecycle
- Define state model and state root
- Introduce token standards for the Lisk ecosystem
- Update Lisk-BFT for Lisk Interoperability
- Update block header format
- Introduce alternative validator selection mechanism for sidechains
- Enhance signature scheme
After successfully publishing the entire amount of interoperability and supporting LIPs, the team will now focus on implementation phase, which will see it work on topics such as reducing the time for finality in the consensus mechanism, or providing a sound incentivization for the role of the relayer in the interoperability solution.
A solution is only as relevant on how it is easy to use, hence, the Lisk Foundation developers and researchers will also collaborate with its UI team members to ensure that the accessibility for end-users to the Lisk ecosystem is as seamless and secure as possible.
Lisk blockchain celebrates five years since launch
How best to celebrate another anniversary of Lisk blockchain if not just after the epoch Lisk.js 2021 conference? The Lisk community celebrated five solid years of Lisk blockchain creation and continuous improvement with several products launched on it as the community witnessed at Lisk.js 2021. Since the Mainnet went live, Lisk reached a block height of 15.5 million. Over 1880 delegate accounts have been registered on the network and more than 37 million LSK tokens have been forged by delegates so far. So much has been achieved within these five years comprising developmental achievements like the release and continuous improvement of Lisk design and desktop implementation, Lisk service, launch of Betanet v4 and v5, external security audit of Lisk SDK 5.0.0 and Lisk Core 3.0.0 and more. Per research, Lisk has completed 35 LIPs and merged into GitHub.
On community initiatives, Lisk Foundation opened Lisk Centre Berlin, joined COPA to help bolster sharing of cryptocurrency-related patents, celebrated one year of Lisk Builders’ Program featured top products built using Lisk SDK and the acquisition of the pricey Lisk.com domain.
