Watch Lisk Grow

Lisk Ascend delegate Slamper has worked hard on providing the Lisk community with useful Lisk tools. This week he released his latest tool with a smart interface to browse real-time and historic Lisk transaction and account statistics. The transaction stats are updated every 5 seconds and the account stats update once every 60 seconds. In the upper right corner of the site you can select a timeframe from which the data should be shown. Some data is cumulative, which means that “New Accounts” shows the total number of new accounts in the selected. The tool lets you select a certain timeframe and shows you stats such as the total transactions per hour, unique senders, volume, the biggest transaction and the average transaction amount. Slamper is also close to releasing another project which is a Lisk network monitor. This will use the new 1.0.0 Websocket API to collect stats from all Lisk nodes on the network to measure uptime, health, block propagation speed, missed blocks + non forging and so on. The tool will allow node owners to set free alerts (Telegram, SMS, Lisk.chat) on their own nodes and delegates without having to install software on their servers. This data will also be recorded and made available via the new stats.lsk.party so it can be browsed easily. This will also form the core for the tools Slamper wants to build to make it easy to deploy failover Lisk clusters using Docker and Kubernetes. Based on these tools he will later build a Sidechain-As-A-Service business, which will allow new Lisk Developers to deploy their own side chain for free without having to struggle with infrastructure plus a paid side chain and delegate hosting with added features. Slamper’s goal is to give the tools which are necessary to allow newcomers to quickly get started with Lisk once side chains are out and that will help the Lisk ecosystem thrive. For more information on the Lisk Acend delegate team, pledging your vote and the referral system you can check out their website. It also feature live chat where you can ask your question or get help with pledging your account.

Lisk Integration With Trezor

This week LiskHQ team member Mariusz Serekannounced that Lisk integration with TREZOR is planned for version 2.0.7. TREZOR is a hardware cryptocurrency wallet which stores the user’s private keys in a secure hardware device. With TREZOR your transactions are completely safe even when initiated on a compromised or vulnerable computer. This is because you are physically using the hardware device to confirm all the actions you make. This integration with TREZOR and most likely creating the first Lisk hardware wallet has been made possible by Lisk community member and GDT delegate Alepop. Currently TREZOR is at firmware update 1.6.1 so it will still take some time before the release but if you want to add some extra wallet security then make sure you keep an eye on the updates.
