As always we encourage you to read our monthly achievements blog to stay up-to-date with Lisk project’s development!
Two New Lisk Improvement Proposals Published
Every upgrade to the Lisk protocol must be submitted through a process called Lisk Improvement Proposals (LIPs). It's the format for proposing improvements to Lisk's products and features. Two new and exciting Lisk Improvement Proposals were published near the end of the month. They are both involved in Lisk's Delegated Proof of Stake Consensus (DPoS).
The first one, LIP: Introduce Reward Sharing Mechanism, defines an on-chain reward sharing mechanism for the Lisk ecosystem. This proposal aims to deliver a fair and transparent distribution of Lisk rewards between delegates and voters. Currently, delegates must make manual interventions to provide these benefits.
Additionally, LIP: Introduce Dynamic Block Rewards Module was also introduced. This one has already stirred up a lot of discussion on the Lisk Research Forum. It aims to improve total value locked (TVL) in Lisk’s consensus by alleviating barriers to efficient participation for large accounts.
After that, Manu Gowda, Lisk’s Head of Platform Development, gave a keynote speech about “Web3 and the Transition to a Decentralized Web”. He explained how decentralized applications are built on top of blockchain technology and how they will change our lives for the better through global accessibility, transparency and accountability.
