Lisk Co-founder and Lightcurve CEO Max Kordek commented:
“Today begins a new era for the Lisk community. The road to innovation was seldom smooth. We have been methodical and moderate in our development phase and have taken no shortcuts here. With great pride, we announce Lisk core 1.0 now. With this achievement, we underline our claim to advance innovation in the Blockchain eco-system.”
The number of technological advances that have been published as part of Lisk core 1.0, includes among other things the implementation of a SocketCluster library. Other updates include a public API extension and substitution, the introduction of numerous code-Refactoren and a complete revision of the test suite.
Lisk-(Mit-)Founder Are Optimistic
Lisk Co-founder and Oliver Beddows CTO of Lightcurve said:
“This is one of the most important milestones for the Lisk eco-system and comes from a strict testing and development phase. At this stage, we have developed 41 versions of Lisk core. Thus, we want to further improve the scalability and stability of the future Blockchain ecosystem. To make this big step with the release of Lisk core of 1.0 at Mainnet, we had to dare a deep dive into the code. It’s very time consuming, but also rewarding for our team.”
The publication of Lisk core 1.0 includes a redesign of the P2P level. Thus, the team wants to maximize performance and improve the reliability of the network. Peers are now able to stay in contact with each other and to Exchange data via a real-time framework, provided by a leading open-source project, SocketCluster.
“This is the latest step in Lisk’s mission to simplify the creation of Blockchain applications, to democratize the Blockchain, and to extend the benefits of technology to all. While you can use the Lisk-core code base as a template, to develop new Blockchains. On these, you can build in turn revolutionary new applications. This is a necessary step to ensure the future stability and scalability of our Protocol and to support a vibrant ecosystem of Blockchain applications”,
