We have prepared a Google Sheet at which you can take a detailed look at the genesis block distribution. The document contains the full 100 million LSK distribution including the developers shares, the ICO participants, and all separate funds.

Please note: Those who did not validate their passphrases on the ICO website will be contacted a few days after launch. We will require a Lisk address from you in order to transfer your acquired LSK to it. The LSK associated with non-validated accounts will be held in the Lisk account 9243982164850799229L.

Definite Release Time

Many of you have expressed their interest in the exact release time Lisk will launch. Until now we were hesitant on releasing an exact time as there were still moving parts in our internal launch plan. However, now we can announce with full confidence a definite release time.

Lisk will launch on May 24, 2016 at 8pm UTC.

Tomorrow we will add a countdown to our website so you can see immediately how many hours are left until launch.
