Lisk Core 1.0 Is On The Mainnet

Today, at Block height 6,901,027, the migration of Lisk Core 1.0 onto the Mainnet began. This day marks a huge milestone for LiskHQ and the entire community as Lisk Core lays the foundation for Lisk’s future.

When the Block height arrived the Lisk delegates were ready to quickly adjust their nodes and many of them where back up and running in no time. As always everyone was very willing to help each other out and in sharing their results in the Lisk.chat Network channel. This collaboration of the Lisk delegates and node runners ensured a quick and very smooth migration.

On this milestone day, LiskHQ also released a new page on their website dedicated to Lisk Core. On this page, you can find all the Lisk Core release statistics such as the amount of contributors, commits, closed issues and much more. The page also features several documentation guides and videos on Lisk Core as well as Code Quality Recognition LiskHQ got from the Darpal Ratings team.

If you have any questions about Lisk Core or need help migrating then don’t hesitate to ask in the Lisk.Chat Network channel!

A Lisk Community Challenge

Yesterday, marketing manager Lindsay Buescher started a community challenge on the Lisk Reddit with the question : Can we get Lisk Hub to 500 stars this week? With over 30.000 Liskers on Reddit I think we should have already done this but as a community lets accept this challenge and click that star.

So what do you have to do to give LiskHQ a GitHub star? You click the link to the Lisk Hub sign-up or login to GitHub and in the top right of the page you will see three buttons : Watch, Star and Fork. All you need to do now is click the Star button and that’s it, you don’t need to do anything else!

So lets show LiskHQ some community love in this milestone week and get them at least 500 GitHub stars!

The First Lisk Houston Meetup

On August 17th, Lisk community member Ian Fortney (Southpaw439) hosted the very first Lisk Houston meetup. It was immediately successful as it attracted around forty Houston locals who showed up to learn more about Lisk and Blockchain technology.

During the meetup Lisk was also represented by members of LiskUSA.io (Sponsor), Bloqspace.io, Arro and BrikBit. The meetup consisted out of a couple of segments such as a “Blockchain 101”, “Lisk Intro and Updates”, a Brikbit presentation and ended with a Q&A session.

There where unfortunately some camera issues but LiskUSA still managed to create a video of the meetup and for more photo’s and info you can read our official Lisk Houston meetup report!

LiskHQ’s Weekly Development Update

Thursday, LiskHQ released their weekly developement blog post. In it we can read that the Lisk Core team has continued their work on future releases. This resulted in the Lisk Core 1.1.0 quality assurance (QA) phase to be completed without any issues. The team also made progress on Lisk Core 1.2.0 on which they managed to close the following issues : #2201, #1884, #2320, #2323 and #2261.

The team also fixed another issue found by community members who reported that the memory consumption of their nodes was slowly increasing over time. The development team traced this issue back to the Socketcluster-server dependency of Lisk Core. They recommended all Testnet nodes operators to check that the Socketcluster-server version is 11.2.2 as this would fix the issue.

The next steps for the team after the migration of Lisk Core 1.0 to the Mainnet is complete will be to freeze Lisk Core 1.2.0 and start its QA phase next week. And if you look on Lisk’s GitHub you can also see that Lisk Core 1.3.0 and 1.4.0 are already tagged so the team is making nice progress!
