Research Completed until Blockchain Interoperability

The research for the four protocol roadmap phases “Security and Reliability”, “Network Economics”, “Network Consensus” and “Network Longevity” was completed. This represents a major milestone for the research on improving the Lisk protocol. Over 35 LIPs have been completed and merged into the lips GitHub repository since June 2018. We have published a blog post summarizing the significant protocol changes of the four roadmap phases.

In order to offer the community the opportunity to ask questions regarding the completed research until Blockchain Interoperability, we hosted an AMA session with Jan Hackfeld and Iker Alustiza on on May 15th. A full recap of the live AMA can be found on our blog.
