We proudly announce Lisk Core 1.0. With this achievement, we underline our aspiration to advance innovation in the blockchain ecosystem. “
The suite of technological advances released as part of Lisk Core 1.0 includes the implementation of a SocketCluster library. Other updates include public API extension and replacement, the introduction of numerous code refactors, and a complete overhaul of the test suite.
Key Milestone for the Lisk
Lisk co-founder and Lightcurve’s CTO Oliver Beddows said:
“This is one of the key milestones for the Lisk ecosystem and comes from a rigorous testing and development phase. In this phase we have developed 41 versions of Lisk Core. With this we want to further improve the scalability and stability of the future blockchain ecosystem. To take that big step with the release of Lisk Core 1.0 on Mainnet, we had to take a deep dip in the code. That was very time consuming for our team, but also rewarding. “
