Does anyone has an opinion to Lisk?
« on: February 24, 2016, 08:54:51 pm »
https://lisk.io/

they are combining Crypti and Ethereum. Do you think the fundraiser is worth to risk some BTC?

 they're using DPOS



3. Consensus

Lisk is based on the DPoS[4] (Delegated Proof of Stake) consensus mechanism. This method of consensus was originally created by the BitShares team.

I think the team consists of several former crypti team members.

It's just a clone of Crypti, including web site and documentation.

The organisation seems good, at least the way they organised their ICO etc. They made quite some money and that itself can lead to good results.

However, the whole Dapp thing is just going to be a big bubble IMO. Everyone is talking about Dapps and build Dapps and create platforms for Dapps etc. The people behind Lisk are some of the people from Crypti, who abandoned the previous project in a weird way. Also their experience and status is quite weak.

The concept of DPoS and Ethereum is good though. That's why I think we really need to act quickly with the development, just because of the network effect. Because they could easily take whatever we've done and build it on top of Ethereum.

Yes, it seems more like a rebrand more than anything else. To try and give the project a new boost.

It has the possibility to become Bitshares + Ethereum.  Thats worth a shot at investing in, even if it ends up failing.

BM has mentioned a few times in the past a new Ethereum like platform trading exclusively on the DEX...

given they are using DPOS and give credit to Bitshares for original work, any chance this is what he is referring too?

Sounds like a weak proposition to me. Buying Bitshares looks better right now.

There's going to be a lot of buzz around Lisk.  We better be one of the first exchanges to trade them.  If not, it will be one of the biggest missed opportunities.  I brought this up to Ronny/[member=23432]ccedk[/member] several times on another thread but have heard nothing back.  Very frustrating.  We should have already made it known that Lisk will trade on OpenLedger from day 1.  In fact, considering Lisk is a spinoff from Crypti (which borrowed dPoS from Bitshares) we should be aiming to get an exclusive to trade them for a period of time.  This is just the sort of shot in the arm we need. 

[member=120]xeroc[/member], have you even heard form Ronny lately?
