Lisk was founded in 2016 by Oliver Beddows and Max Kordek. Both are well-known names within the cryptocurrency industry.
Lisk is similar to Google Play and the Apple Store but decentralized. As with an appstore, you can search for a dApp in Lisk's system. All blockchain applications built on the platform must be registered on the Mainchain. These registrations create a connection between the Lisk mainchain and the sidechains, so that all blockchain applications and services can be found.
In total there are over 126 million LISK.
