Lisk Community Is Rapidly Developing Tools and Services for the Ecosystem

The Lisk team is excited about the communities’ involvement with the platform. Since launch, the Lisk platform has experienced growth from community projects. LiskSocket.com is a WebSocket service which provides real time information on transactions and new blocks on the Lisk blockchain.

Also, the community has created several implementations of the Lisk API in different languages, e.g. C# / C#, Python, and Node.JS. Additionally, these community developers have been working on tools to provide more information about the network, the nodes, or to simplify the platform features. A few examples of these tools are:

- lisk-autoVote – a script which automatically votes on delegates from text files with delegate names, addresses and public keys
- LiskMonitor a stand-alone PowerShell script to do end-user monitoring on Lisk Main-net and Test-net nodes and delegates.
- lisktool.sh – a Lisk toolset for maintaining a Lisk server
- Lisk Army Knife – a forging failover and command line Lisk
- LiskMonitor (app) – An Android application to monitor delegate account status

Alternatively, if you’re looking for other ways of accessing the Lisk platform, a Lisk Lite Client provides a fast experience for viewing, depositing and sending LSK. The Lisk Lite Mobile Client by FreeWallet.org enables the same on Android and iOS smartphones. There is also the website LiskPaperWallet.com, which generates a paper wallet for the secure long-term storage of the digital currency LSK. Furthermore, blockchain enthusiasts are looking into Lisk for potential solutions of current real-world problems.

Blocksafe, an upcoming blockchain startup, will use a combination of Lisk, BitTorrent and Telehash to create their infrastructure for smart devices of firearms. LiskDice, an upcoming gaming solution built on the Lisk platform, just recently raised over 4000 BTC in its crowdfunding. The official Lisk forum and chat is thriving and new projects are coming up every other day.

Lisk is a unique alternative to Ethereum, in that it is based on a consensus algorithm called the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS). In DPoS, blocks are mined or generated by stakeholders, or investors that hold the highest amount of LISK. Within the network, these majority stakeholders can....
