Lisk at Berlin Blockchain Week 2019 — Recap

Lisk at Berlin Blockchain Week 2019 — Recap

In Berlin, August is all about blockchain. It was clear that the third edition of the Blockchain Week Berlin was a fully community-driven initiative. Its aim? To promote education around this complex technology and continue growing the local community of developers, entrepreneurs, scientists and enthusiasts. Four times bigger than the previous year, Blockchain Week Berlin included four major conferences and over 60 satellite events. With a total of ten events attended or organized by Lisk, we had a successful presence during these two weeks filled with on-boarded developers, networking opportunities, and loads of exposure for

Exploring Pre-Votes and Pre-Commits for Byzantine Fault Tolerance Consensus (BFT)

Exploring Pre-Votes and Pre-Commits for the Byzantine Fault Tolerance Consensus (BFT)

Since their introduction in late 2018, Lisk Improvement Proposals (or LIPs), have helped to improve the ecosystem in close collaboration with the Lisk community. One of the many network features we introduced through this process was the new Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) consensus system. We have already covered the benefits of this consensus algorithm for the Lisk protocol in this blog post. Ahead of its implementation in Lisk SDK 3.0.0, I want to focus one important aspect of the BFT consensus — the process of computing block finality i.e. a guarantee that

August is a special month for Berlin’s blockchain industry. Thousands of attendees travel from all over Germany (and beyond) to its capital for a fix of developer conferences, hackathons and meetups at the Berlin Blockchain Week. Around the city, local projects organize events filled with scientific discussions, technical talks, and business updates. Lisk always had deep ties to Berlin and its blockchain scene. Today, we’d like to give you a rundown of where you can expect to catch us in the coming weeks:

Lisk Core 2.0.1. Released to Fix a P2P-related Network Vulnerability

Lisk Core 2.0.1. Released to Fix a P2P-Related Network Vulnerability

Today, we released Lisk Core 2.0.1 to both Testnet and Mainnet. This patch was released because of a vulnerability in the way nodes manage peer lists. This in turn led to unsustainable growth in CPU and memory usage for all nodes in the network. This update is for node operators only — all the funds are safe and there is no need for any action from Lisk Network users.

On July 15th, we received a Bug Bounty Program submission with a number of vulnerabilities. We accepted three of them as valid. Two out of the

Alpha SDK Phase Officially Begins with the Launch of Lisk SDK 2.1.0

Today, we are happy to announce the release of Lisk SDK 2.1.0. This marks the beginning of the Alpha SDK Phase on our Development Roadmap. This phase will allow developers to create their own proof-of-concept blockchain applications. Developers will also be included in the SDK’s design by being able to provide feedback on how their experience can be improved.

What is Alpha SDK?

The goal of the Lisk SDK (Software Development Kit) is to provide developers with a set of tools and libraries that will make the process of creation and customization of blockchain applications quick and easy.
