Delegate ThePool Introduces New His Plans

Today, delegate ThePool (Karek) launched his new website and introduced his plans focused on expanding the Lisk ecosystem.

ThePool will develop future Lisk side chain applications, and reward voters with tokens from the newly introduced side chains, in addition to the traditional Lisk token rewards. ThePool also urges other delegates and the community to start developing as it should be quite easily to migrate and tie the apps to the to Lisk main chain in the future.

Last but not least he asks the Lisk community act in the best interest of ecosystem, morally and technically.

It’s good to see these changes by ThePool and hopefully many more delegates will follow him in helping grow the Lisk ecosystem!

A First Proof Of Concept App : Lisk Bike

This week, delegate Joo5ty introduced one of the first proof of concept’s on the Lisk Blockchain : Lisk Bike.

The Lisk Bike team wants to showcase a proof of concept that can be made with the current state of the Lisk Alpha SDK. As the Netherlands is a huge cycling country and ‘commercial bike sharing’ becoming more and more popular. The team wants to make use of this concept, fit a bike with a GPS tracking lock, build a JavaScript application and use the Lisk Blockchain for data registration.

Lisk Bike already launched its own website together a demo and roadmap. The goal is to have a working demonstration for all Lisk Center visitors/developers to inspire them to also start using the Lisk SDK.

Currently Lisk Bike is looking for funding for their proof of concept so if you like the idea then don’t hesitate to donate!
