As Lisk.js 2019 was an outstanding success, bringing together a myriad of developers and blockchain enthusiasts, we decided to host Lisk.js 2021 as a two-day virtual event, featuring talks from Lisk team members, in conjunction with members from our esteemed Lisk community who have been building blockchain applications with the Lisk SDK.

Lisk.js will return on May 21st - 22nd, 2021 and it will be hosted fully online, so everyone can remain safe and healthy. Therefore, the event will be live-streamed from the stage in the Kühlhaus venue in Berlin. Our two-day event will feature a packed agenda comprising the latest cutting-edge and in-depth presentations by our research, development, and marketing teams.

These talks will include the latest updates, a deep-dive into the Lisk interoperability solution, our upcoming online hackathon, live demos, our newly improved Lisk Developer program, the blockchain applications showcase from our Lisk core community members, and much more.

Event Format

The main focus of Lisk.js 2021 will be on Lisk’s interoperability specifications. Our main goal was to deliver a scalable and decentralized blockchain interoperability solution for the Lisk ecosystem. During the event, all interoperability LIPs (Lisk Improvement Proposals) will be unveiled, as well as the plans for research and development moving further forward into 2021.

The Lisk.js 2021 two-day event has been designed to cater to all levels of technical knowledge and experience, including newcomers into the Lisk ecosystem, as well as blockchain enthusiasts, and development professionals. Therefore, to cover all the relevant topics we decided to split the agenda over a two-day period.

The first day will be dedicated to showcasing Lisk’s interoperability solution, the new Lisk research roadmap, the latest development announcements, and the upcoming online hackathon. In addition, Max Kordek, our CEO and co-founder of Lisk, will give a keynote speech about our achievements and a new era of Lisk, coupled with Lisk’s vision for the future.

The second day of the event will consist of in-depth Lisk interoperability solution presentations, developer demos, and community talks.
