The Lisk platform
and its LSK token are tasked with supporting the streamlined development of decentralized apps (dapps) and sidechains. The platform operates as a decentralized network built around the idea of making the blockchain development a much easier task for as many devs as possible.
Based on its stated list of operational priorities, Lisk is often described as a competitor of Ethereum
which also pits it against similar alternatives such as NEO. Yet, its creators see its provision of SDKs and features allowing for interchangeability of digital assets across various sidechains as the Lisk’s main trump card.
