Max Kordek is the Co-Founder and CEO of Lisk, a blockchain platform for decentralized applications established in 2016 together with his Co-Founder Oliver Beddows, who is the CTO. Lisk was one of the earliest pioneers of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithms, specifically Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS), as well as drawing out the vision of blockchain inter-operability through sidechains. Lisk is reaching the end of the current implementation roadmap with the SDK in version 5.0 having been marked as "development complete".
Max talks to us about the various new products (e.g., Lisk Service) and functionalities under development and the state of research (for the latter, in particular the specification of inter-operability), the compelling proof-of-concept Dapps the community is developing, supported by the Lisk Builders Program, and the Lisk Centers in Utrecht, Tokyo (at Binarystar in Ginza) and Berlin, with the Berlin opening (virtual) event scheduled for November 20.
