Blockchain is all about fairness and security. It’s a big database that lets you record information safely and interact with anyone, without the need to trust them or rely on a big company.
Blockchain is decentralized, which means it does not have a central point. All of the information is stored on a lot of different computers, which makes it more difficult to break into a single device or steal information. Blockchain technology is a way of recording information onto lots of different devices all at once through the internet. There are many different blockchains, storing different types of information. You can have a blockchain recording money, recording identities, storing music or agreements between people. Literally any type of information can be recorded onto a blockchain in a better way than we have ever seen until now.
Blockchain gets rid of the problem of being unable to trust anyone because everything that is there is meant to be there. We can be sure of this thanks to computer programs that check everything that is added to a blockchain. The data that is recorded on a blockchain is copied onto many different devices that are connected to each other to form a network. Whenever any new information is added, all of the devices are updated through these computer programs.
We envision a world in which everyone benefits from blockchain. Given this, the Lisk Foundation set itself the goal to inspire blockchain enthusiasts and developers alike. The ultimate goal is to bring talent into the blockchain industry by enabling you to participate in building the decentralized future with our products, whether you are a technical person or not.
Lisk believes that general purpose protocols should be non-profit. This is why Max and Oliver set up the Lisk Foundation in Zug, Switzerland in 2016. This approach has other benefits as well – easy and fast incorporation, friendly regulatory environment, and a handy ecosystem of other foundations and other services.
Lightcurve GmbH was then set up by the Lisk Foundation in early 2017 and is managed by Directors Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows. It’s a blockchain development studio, employing approximately 50 team members who work on blockchain development, marketing, community management, business development and operations to strengthen the Lisk platform. Currently, the Lightcurve team is based in Berlin, Germany and is exclusively on the retainer of the Lisk Foundation.
Lisk is a blockchain application platform, founded by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows in early 2016. Based on its own blockchain network and utility token, LSK, it will enable developers to build blockchain applications and create an ecosystem of blockchain applications for mainstream users to benefit from.
Before blockchain can achieve its full potential, it needs to gain mass adoption. Lisk is determined to solve this problem by becoming a safe and secure gateway to this technology for developers and enthusiasts alike.
