Lisk At Disrupt Berlin 2017
This week the Lisk marketing team attended Disrupt Berlin 2017 organised by TechCrunch. TechCrunch Disrupt is the world’s leading authority in debuting revolutionary startups, introducing game-changing technologies, and discussing what’s on the minds of the tech industry’s key innovators. TechCrunch Disrupt gathers the best and brightest entrepreneurs, investors, hackers, and tech fans for on-stage interviews, the Startup Battlefield competition, a 24-hour Hackathon, Startup Alley, Hardware Alley, and After Parties. The Lisk team had a stand in the startup alley and was represented by Jennifer, Lindsay, Kuba, and the new Lisk team members Michael and Mat. In the two days they where at TechCrunch Disrupt they talked to the general tech public and noticed an overwhelming interest for Lisk.  This once again shows that Lisk has one of the best and most supportive communities out there.

Lisk Community Update
This Tuesday the Lisk team released a new blog post in which they gave a community update  for the month of  November. The post starts of with a brief recap of Lisk’s latest releases and business updates. The month of November had many accomplishments, such as the release of Lisk Explorer 1.4.0, Lisk Nano 1.3.0, the new Lisk development roadmap, and Lisk being listed on the Binance exchange. The post also contains an introduction to the latest Lisk employees. In November, Michael (Marketing manager), Yair (QA Engineer) and Julian (Motion Designer) started working at Lisk, and this month the team expanded with the hiring of Mat (Community Manager), Andries (HR Manager) and Michał (Backend Developer). So if you want to get to know the new Lisk employees and where they are from, make sure you read this latest Lisk blog post.

Moracle
In the future, people will be able to have their own project running on a Lisk sidechain. Some people are already working hard on preparing the sidechain projects they want to build on Lisk. One of these future sidechain projects is Moracle.  This is a project to bring a decentralized oracle service to the Lisk platform. An oracle service is necessary in order for blockchain applications to access data from the open internet. Oracle services exist for Ethereum, but are centralized and can have pricey fees. Moracle solves these problems by offering a full decentralized Oracle service for Lisk. Using the MRCL token as the sidechain currency for all Oracle service payments, users will be able to earn by running a node. This will allow for low prices and a fast network. The Moracle project already has a white paper and twitter account. You can also subscribe to the mailing list to never miss a Moracle update.

Sapiens
Another future Lisk sidechain is the Sapiens project. This project started back in 2016, when Matteo Ferrari decided to use his passion for Blockchain and Innovative technologies in order to build a platform for schools, universities, and companies to share their resources and services with a decentralized, cost effective, and secure solution. His first idea was to use and build a prototype by using the Smart Contracts functionality of Ethereum, but he quickly faced issues relative to fees and scalability. Ethereum is, in fact, a giant Singleton and a Complete Turing-Machine, but it is not designed to scale or support high computational processes. Later, Matteo started looking at Lisk (and Crypti code-base) with the intent to figure out if this particular technology could fit with the objective of his project. Matteo strongly believes sidechain technology is the perfect solution to solve scalability. His mission is to deliver a base prototype of Sapiens Decentralized Platform, backed by Lisk sidechain, and promote it in universities, schools, or even private companies in order to spread these new technologies and raise awareness of this new decentralization era. This platform will be able to store every aspect of the career in an immutable way: exams results, achievements, courses, publications, certificates and degrees. Matteo sees a future where you just need a link to Sapiens Decentralized Platform on your CV. Through this link you will be able to verify all of the academic history and certificates that candidate owns.

Lisk.support
Our developers are working hard on rebuilding Lisk.support and getting our new and improved site ready for release. The site will be even more user friendly, will have all the Lisk tools, and is going to have the updated information on all things Lisk related. This week we are pleased to give the community a sneak peak at what the Lisk.support development team has been working on so far.
