Lisk Raises over 14,000 BTC (US$5.7M) in Initial Coin Offering

liskLisk, an Aachen, Germany-based custom blockchain platform, raised over 14,000 bitcoins (approx. US$5.7M) in an Initial Coin Offering.

Founded by CEO and entrepreneur Max Kordek, and CTO Oliver Beddows, a full stack developer for over 15 years, who first worked together at the MIT licensed decentralized application platform Crypti, Lisk provides a decentralized application and custom blockchain platform which uses JavaScript to allow programmers to develop their own dapps.
The launch of the platform is estimated to be on the 11th April.

The company’s team is working together with Microsoft to bring the Lisk decentralized application platform to the Azure cloud. As a first step Microsoft Azure has officially integrated Lisk into its Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) program – meaning developers worldwide can develop, test, and deploy Lisk decentralized applications using Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform and infrastructure.
Additionally, the company is in a strategic partnership with the research lab Chain of Things which investigates whether blockchain technology can be effective in establishing security in the Internet of Things.

Lisk is also actively seeking out developers who can develop JavaScript based decentralized applications with its SDK.
