About half a year ago, the team behind Lisk relaunched its platform. The most important message Lisk received was that they wanted to make it easier for blockchain developers to start sidechain projects on Lisk. A look at the largest and most important projects associated with Lisk.
The Sapiens project aims to create a decentralized platform for certification and verification within an academic ecosystem. Blockchain developer Matteo Ferrari had already founded the platform in 2016 to enable people to control their data and certificates via a blockchain. His first area of application was to identify schools, universities and other educational institutions whose administration is to be relieved and made more efficient.
Adamant is against this with a blockchain application for crypto trader
“People deserve to have full control over their certificates and records in a form that allows them to easily share them. In return, the crypto trader blockchain can function as a secure and trust-independent notarial system. With Sapiens, we want to help schools, universities and businesses offer their services through a decentralized, cost-effective and secure crypto trader application, says Matteo Ferrari.
According to the team behind Sapiens, digitized academic references should make services and certificates more easily retrievable and verifiable. The Sapiens platform wants to provide the necessary tools with which everyone can deposit the most important building blocks of their career on the blockchain. Sapiens builds on the Lisk-Blockchain and uses the possibilities offered by the Sidechain Development Kit of the platform.
The Blockchain platform BrikBit exists only since this year and has the goal to develop Blockchain applications for the real estate sector. For this purpose, a team of architects has been put together who want to work with their experience in the real estate sector to solve key problems. The approach of BrikBit includes a crypto currency REDA (Real Estate Digital Asset).
The central challenge of BrikBit is that there is no object that realistically reflects the value of a property. In contrast to other models of tokenization, BrikBit does not only want to create a pure crypto currency, but an asset that contains the information about the property in digital form. For example, construction and renovation measures are to be mapped on the blockchain.
Like the Sapiens project, BrikBit builds a sidechain on the Lisk-Blockchain
“REDA collects a range of information about the properties, which is jointly managed by a community. Thus, the system creates an infrastructure for the exchange and maintenance of this information through protocols that are accepted by all members. We are taking the first steps to develop international standards to be able to react to the developments in the real estate market”, says BrikBit, said BrikBit CTO Alex Dell’Orto.
The Adamant project is in the process of building an open source messenger on the blockchain. With this, the company wants to address a number of problems that arise with the various existing messenger services. The biggest problem identified by the team is security gaps, which are exemplary for centralized peer-to-peer messengers. The privacy of the users who communicate via the messenger also leaves something to be desired with the classic short message services.
The platform advertises itself as the only private messenger that runs entirely on the blockchain. The project, whose developers come from Russia, exists since 2017. In contrast to the two previously mentioned, it is not a direct Lisk sidechain project, but rather builds on the code base of Lisk. In addition, the crypto currency LSK should be able to be used as a means of payment in the Adamant Messenger.
“We believe in the power of Open Source. That’s why we’ve looked at several open source projects to start our project. We first started with a proof-of-work system. However, since sending and receiving messages took too long, we quickly stopped. Delegated Proof of Stake seemed to us to be a good alternative. Finally, we decided to base our system on Lisks Code-Base. The fact that Lisk uses NodeJS and PostgreSQL also influenced our decision,
says Adamant-CTO Dimitriy Soloduhin.
The Blockchain project GNY started already in 2015 under the name Grey Jean Technol.
