Lisk Blockchain Applications Platform Announces the Launch of Lisk Nano

Lisk development team has introduced a new light-weight client that allows users to access their Lisk account on any device without synchronizing with the blockchain.

The decentralized blockchain application development platform Lisk has announced the launch of Lisk Nano. Lisk Nano is a lightweight, simple, and fully responsive client software that enables users to access the basic functionalities of the platform on-the-go.

Developed by Lisk Tools Developer Ricardo Ferro, Lisk Nano allows users to create and access Lisk accounts. Lisk Nano can also be used to send, receive, and view transactions of Lisk tokens (LSK). The current version, Lisk Nano 0.1.0 is compatible with all the leading computer operating systems viz., Windows, macOS, and Linux.

As the Lisk team continues to work on creating an easy to use, fully-featured client for Windows and macOS platforms, Lisk Nano offers a temporary alternative for the users to access the most basic features of the decentralized blockchain application platform. Unlike the full-fledged client, Lisk Nano doesn’t require synchronization with the Lisk blockchain or network. Instead, the client establishes a direct connection with one of the trusted official Lisk nodes.

“As we progress, we would like to add nodes maintained by reputable and trusted community members, or possibly switch to a completely decentralized network-wide node selection,” Says Lisk CTO Oliver Beddows.

Lisk Nano is still a beta software with room for improvement. The team will continue fixing any bugs while including new features in the upcoming updates. Lisk Nano is available for download here.
