Can Lisk develop an ecosystem that pulls developers from using the Ethereum network? If Lisk can entice developers to make dApps on their Sidechains then Lisk can become a great investment.
Lisk has created a strong team but has been slow to the market with a working product. Now that Lisk has released their new Lisk product the consumers’ reaction will be a strong indicator to see if the Lisk ecosystem has a future.
Rather than offering a Proof of Stake or Proof of Work system, Lisk uses a Delegated Proof of Stake system (DPoS). The DPoS eliminates the issues concerning centralized miners. As far as dApps, Lisk has invented the idea of Sidechains which allows greater scalability. Each sidechain can decide what kind of protocol to run and if there is a problem within a sidechain it will not affect the mainchain.
It’s clear that Lisk is aiming for all dApps to be built on their network and continues to push the simpleness of its platform as the main selling point. However, up to this point, the Ethereum platform has offered a more advanced option for developers. No doubt, Lisk has excited the developer community but it won’t turn out a high ROI until it convinces the rest of the crypto investors.
