Lisk is a blockchain application platform aiming to create an accessible future where everyone can benefit from decentralized technology.
Lisk enables developers to build applications as well as deploy a side-chain linked to the Lisk network that includes a custom token. Lisk empowers developers with a software development kit for blockchain applications and is working on an interoperability solution that will in turn let everyone seamlessly use it on the platform.
Who Are the Founders of Lisk?
The founders of Lisk are Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows, who started the project in 2017.
Max Kordek is the president of Lisk and is responsible for the strategy and business of Lisk. He is also the co-founder and director of Lightcurve, and is responsible for strategy and business there as well. Lightcurve is a blockchain product development studio and consultancy with a special focus on marketing, coding and support.

What Makes Lisk Unique?
Imagine a world where just about anyone can benefit from using blockchain technology. With that idea in mind, the Lisk foundation targeted one very specific goal, and that is to inspire blockchain developers and enthusiasts from all around the globe.
Lisk is a decentralized network, similar to BitShares, Nxt or Bitcoin.
However, Lisk does not utilize proof-of-work like Bitcoin does, and instead uses a simplified implementation of BitShares’ original consensus algorithm that is known as delegated proof-of-stake.
Every LSK holder can vote for mainchain delegates that are securing the network itself. There are 101 active mainchain delegates that always get the highest votes, and they can earn block generation rewards. All other delegates are on standby waiting to become elected or secure a Lisk sidechain. Lisk is also a cryptocurrency called LSK and it is also a framework known as the Lisk LSK SDK. You can use it to deploy your own sidechains and develop blockchain applications on top of them.
