Blockchain technology will usher in a new era of decentralized internet, supporting innovation in and disruption of all major global industries and charitable causes.

Before blockchain can fully achieve its potential, it needs mass adoption. Niche programming languages, lack of technological education and uninviting user interfaces have so far kept it away from many of those with the potential to use it.

This is where Lisk comes in. Lisk is a blockchain application platform. We create tools to allow developers to build their own decentralised applications on our blockchain. All of our software is written using the mainstream language of JavaScript. Blockchain application builders also get the benefit of deploying their own, customizable sidechain, along with their own custom token. They also get the benefit of thorough documentation and friendly user interface.

Our core values of blockchain accessibility, education and user-centricity guide not only our technology, but also our marketing and community channels. With the founding of Lisk Academy, we aim to educate and inspire as many as possible about their ability to realise their disrupting blockchain vision.
