Entrepreneurs and developers could win 60,000 CHF for building blockchain applications on Lisk
Open-source blockchain application platform Lisk is searching for entrepreneurs and developers to build blockchain applications with the Lisk SDK. Successful applicants will receive a 60,000 CHF grant each (paid in LSK tokens) to expand their ecosystem with amazing use-cases. The current wave of applications finishes on 31st December, so get thinking.
Founded by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows in 2016 and raising a whopping 14,000 Bitcoin (BTC) in its initial coin offering, Lisk is a growing blockchain technology platform. Back in 2016, it was one of the most successful crowdfunding projects. In 2021, it has blossomed into the home of interoperability and entrepreneurship.
Lisk Grant Program
At its core, the Lisk Grant Program hopes to find entrepreneurs and developers to build blockchain applications with the Lisk SDK. These teams will contribute to building a strong ecosystem of production-ready blockchain applications, or dapps.
As part of the previous developer program, Lisk Builders Program, a series of proof of concept blockchain applications have been developed. They aimed to inspire developers to build production-ready blockchain applications using the Lisk SDK. The Lisk Grant Program hopes to build on this success.
In all, the Lisk Grant Program offers an opportunity for budding developers to not only showcase the diverse use-cases for Lisk, but also the creation of interesting tools. Next year Lisk will introduce plugins, modules, API wrappers, and new testing suites. Click here to learn more about these options.
For successful projects, 60,000 CHF paid in LSK tokens is up for grabs. LSK is the token native to the Lisk blockchain currently trading at roughly $3. To apply for the first wave of the program you will need to send off your ideas before December 31st. There will be another wave in January, 2022.
Taking success for grant-ed
2021 has been a busy year for Lisk. Alongside fireside events and the grant program, Lisk successfully completed its launch of mainnet v3. It was the biggest protocol update to ever occur on the Lisk blockchain. The integration to the mainnet drives the group further on its mission to blockchain interoperability, which will allow blockchain applications to register as a sidechain.
Indeed, Lisk has made a name for itself as an industry leader in blockchain interoperability. In essence, it makes the deployment of side chains onto the Lisk blockchain easy, enabling blockchain applications to scale while still connecting to the wider Lisk ecosystem. Sidechain connections to blockchain ecosystems such as Ethereum, Cosmos, Cardano, or Polkadot are imminent.
The Lisk network operates using a highly efficient delegated proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. In brief, it’s a network secured by democratically elected delegates. As a result, it maintains a significantly lower energy consumption than proof-of-work networks, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum (in its current form).
