The CCID Public Blockchain Ranking

Today, the CCID Research, which is a Chinese IT media initiative working under China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, released their seventh round of public Blockchain rankings. The ranking is based on three different criteria : Basic-tech, Applicability, and Creativity. The CCID gives the projects a number of points for each criteria and then adds those points together to create the total score.

In this 7th ranking, Lisk got a score of 68.1 for its Basic-tech, a 15.9 for Applicability, and 18.9 for its Creativity. This led to a total score of 102.9 leaving us in 8th place right behind Neo.

It must be stated that we only know the three different criteria and don’t know how the CCID actually awards their points. However, it’s good to see Lisk maintaining a top 10 place in these rankings!

GNY Get’s Lisk Machine Learning Listed

Back in September, GNY officially introduced the branding of their Lisk side chain called LML – Lisk Machine Learning. LML will allow the Lisk ecosystem to add artificial intelligence capability to sidechain applications.

This morning, GNY announced that their LML (ERC20) token will begin trading on Cryptopia as of November 27th.

GNY is a Machine Learning system which has already been tested and used in commercial US industry and provides customer behavior prediction. With GNY developers will have the tools to reach consumers with better and more genuine interactions.

The project leverages the power of the Blockchain with Machine Learning (ML) to pre-existing Blockchains, offering smart APIs that bridge to Ethereum, Asch, Lisk and any developer working with the universal system.

GNY focuses on today’s customers who are deeply involved with their digital lives and have increasing expectations to be met and questions answered with no more than a click.

The Erasmus Tech Community 2018

On November 26th, LightCurve Head of Marketing Thomas Schouten will present a keynote during a Blockchain event at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (Netherlands).

This event named Re:think Blockchain aims to reevaluate what we know about the technology and see what are actual applications of it. The goal is to help students understand how companies use it and why it matters – because Blockchain is here to stay. This is also why the University attracted some other companies like ING and IBM to speak during the event.

The next day the Lisk Amsterdam Meetup will be held allowing students to join and dive deeper into Lisk.

A special thanks to the Dutch Lisk Ambassador Meyade for making this event possible!
