LiskHQ Will Attend Consensus

Today, LiskHQ announced that they will once again be attending the Consensus Blockchain conference in New York city.

Consensus is the annual gathering of the cryptocurrency and Blockchain technology world. Since 2015, Consensus has attracted every major company, developer, founder and investor in the cryptocurrency and Blockchain world to engage in an annual discussion about the future of the industry.

Consensus is designed to be a big tent for the industry: it convenes industry participants ranging from enterprise consortia to cypher punks. This convening power breaks down the barriers that separate companies in the industry and allows everyone working on the technology to spend three days learning from their peers.

Consensus offers a place for exceptional networking opportunities as it brings brings entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, traders, developers, academics, students and the curious together under one roof.

This is why Lisk’s ceo and co-founder Max Kordek together with Tech Evangelist Rachel Black will attend Consensus and be giving keynotes on Lisk.

More information on the event and their trip will likely follow later this month!

A New Lisk Milstone

This week, a new milestone was hit on the Lisk network with the forging of the 9 millionth Block since the network went live May 24th.

On the Lisk explorer a new Block is forged each 10 seconds and each Block may hold up to 25 Lisk transactions. For each forged Block the 101 delegates that are securing the Lisk network receive a forging reward and the transaction fees for their service.

Initially this started in 2014 with a reward 5 LSK per forged Block. But every 3,000,000 Blocks (approximately 1 year) this reward is reduced by 1 LSK, ending at 1 LSK per Block where it stays like that forever.

Currently each successfully generated Block is awarded with 3 LSK. Once we hit Block 10.451.520 which is expected to be around 14-10-2019 that reward will reduced to 2 LSK.

So even though Lisk’s supply does not have a hard cap it does have an annual Lisk inflation rate ending at 1 LSK per Block.
