22nd February 2016 was a grand beginning for Lisk as they started their Initial Coin Offerings. Surviving the capital raising and still on for months after their ICO (Initial Coin Offerings) was just a clear indication that Lisk LSK would compete well in the digital market.
Following the EWN report about the MainNet Migration of Lisk (LSK) by the development team on the 29th of August, the hard work had seen the light of the day as they eventually launched the much anticipated Lisk Core 1.0 to the Main Network.
The earlier report at Ethereum World News states:
“Here at LiskHQ, we’re buckled down and working hard in preparation for the upcoming Lisk 1.0.0 migration on Mainnet on August 29. All of the components of the Lisk ecosystem Lisk Core, Lisk Elements, Lisk Commander and Lisk Hub-are all being updated and aligned with one another for the big migration. In addition to this, the Lisk Core team is also working on future releases, the Lisk team wrote in the blog post…”
Just like Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store allow individual developers to build and distribute apps, Lisk provides a similar blockchain-based application platform. The big difference is that Google and Apple control their respective app stores, while Lisk is decentralized and distributed to run across many computers on the public blockchain.
Lisk Co-founder and CEO of Lightcurve Max Kordek at the launch remarked that:
“Today marks the beginning of a new era for the Lisk community. The road to innovation is rarely smooth, and we have taken a methodical, measured approach to our development phase, taking no shortcuts along the way. It is with the great sense of collective pride that We officially announce the release of Lisk Core 10, an achievement that reaffirms our ambition to be the enablers of innovation in the fast-evolving blockchain ecosystem.”
As stipulated, the successful launch of this new version of Lisk after several days of very tedious, series of testing, the team launches Lisk Core 1.0 to the Main Network. With its SDK or SideChain Dev Kit, scalable blockchain apps are now possible.
