What is Lisk?

Established in May 2016, Lisk is an open source project focused on blockchain accessibility. Lisk's ecosystem offers everyone the opportunity to benefit from blockchain technology through developer tools, cryptocurrency wallets, and a vibrant community.

Apps Built on Lisk

The Lisk community is working on multiple proof of concept blockchain applications developed with the Lisk SDK.

Lisk Roulette

A decentralized, fully deterministic game of roulette

Lisk Global Data Chain

A decentralized database for storing global datasets


A decentralized archive for storing and verifying websites

Lisk Inviter

A decentralized app to validate and control event attendees

Explore the Lisk SDK

Develop blockchain applications compatible with the Lisk protocol. No need to learn new languages, everything is being written in JavaScript and TypeScript.

The modular design of the Lisk SDK enables you to realize any kind of blockchain technology use-case.

const { Application, genesisBlockDevnet, configDevnet } = require('lisk-sdk');

const app = new Application(genesisBlockDevnet, configDevnet);

    .then(() => app.logger.info('Blockchain application started...'))
    .catch(error => {
        console.error('Error in the application', error);


Official Lisk Wallets

Lisk Desktop is an all-in-one solution to manage your Lisk account, access and send tokens, or vote for delegates. It combines the functionality of a cryptocurrency wallet with the transparency of a blockchain explorer. Lisk Mobile is your lightweight version ready for on-the-go use.



This full-day annual Lisk developer-focused event is the culmination of all the development and research efforts of the Lisk project and ecosystem.
It takes place at Kühlhaus Berlin, and includes workshops, coding challenges, research and development talks, panel discussions and also several Lisk Ecosystem presentations by our core community members.
