Over 1,100 entries, nine hours of content, 450 slides and thousands of viewers – this nearly two-day blockchain event could have been held due to COVID-19, but it was still filled with content.

Lisk.js is a developer focused event and it was full of ads. The public was presented not only with an innovative interoperability solution, but also interesting details about an ambitious new hackathon and grant program.

The conference kicked off with an exciting speech from Lisk CEO and Co-Founder Max Kordek, who spoke about how far the project has come over the past two years.

As you would expect, the interoperability solution was the primary goal of Lisk.js 2021. Research Manager Ian Hackfield gave a compelling and concise account of how it works and was accompanied by the publication of a detailed literature report on the sidechain lifecycle as well as detailed information about messages and certificates in chains. …

The forward-looking presentation also provided a roadmap for launching an interoperability solution with expected milestones in the coming months. Manu, the lead backend developer, also started the journey to the Lisk version 3 mainnet and talked about the planning and development process.

Then there was Marketing Manager Monica Tartau, who had details about HackOnLisk as well as the platform’s new grant program – which Cointelegraph wrote in more detail about in a recent article.

The importance of HackOnLisk is that it is the first online hackathon to be held for the Lisk ecosystem. After the completion of the $ 33,000 prize pool, there is clear excitement that this competition will lead to the development of attractive new applications that move the Blockchain forward – and even better, they can be created using JavaScript.

Meanwhile, the emergence of the grant program gives hope that more developers and entrepreneurs will be inclined to give Lisk a chance.

All of this development means a new era has begun for Lisk, Kordich said. The roadmap has been divided into six stages, each of which has been awarded a gem. Stage “Quartz” took place from January 1 to May 24, 2016 – “Transition to amber”, which ended on August 16, 2018. It moved to the “Rubin” stage and ended in July 2019, which led us to the current stage ” Emerald”. Looking ahead, we have the Sapphire and Diamond phases – both of which will be useful in ensuring the Lisk connectivity solution becomes popular.

What real compatibility looks like
The second day of Lisk.js 2021 aims to take a deeper look at the solution to interact with Lisk for three hours, bringing together expert analysis and understanding of the entire project. Researchers raised topics including token standards. The full presentation is still available on the Lisk YouTube page, and the in-depth blog post provides a detailed overview of all the topics discussed.

It was also a long time devoted to the Lisk SDK 5.1.0 released during the event. This was accompanied by a live demo showing how a blockchain application can be developed using the latest SDK.

Of course, not only Lisk’s team was invited to express their opinion during the event. Several community members who have already collected evidence of blockchain applications using the Lisk SDK, including fair ticketing systems, crowdfunding platforms, independent marketplaces, and stack coins, also shared their experiences of building blockchain applications on Lisk.

Since there is so much to expect in the roadmap, all eyes are now on Lisk.js 2022, and the project hopes to keep this event private.
