Hello and welcome to Lisk - a platform for decentralized applications & sidechains written in JavaScript! Developers can build, publish, distribute and monetize their applications within our custom built crypto-currency powered system.

We are happy that you took an interest into our platform and hope that we can convince you that we are the next logical step within the blockchain environment. Our ICO will start on the 22nd February, but you can already play around with our testnet client and even get some testnet LISK to play around with. It would be awesome if you join us on our Lisk.Chat and get in contact with us. We would like to hear your opinion about Lisk.

If you want to know who is behind Lisk, then please check out our first blog post Welcome to Lisk. This is us. in which we explain in more detail who we are, where we are coming from and what our plans are. If you want to know more about the way we will handle things you can also read the blog post Lisk - A new approach.

We shall reserve 1,000,000 LISK (1% of the total amount) for bounties which we will distribute to everyone who supports Lisk before and during the ICO. You can support Lisk by creating more awareness within other crypto-currency communities and strengthening its brand.

Newsletter Subscribers — 200,000 LISK

Subscribe to our newsletter and receive weekly summaries about Lisk. Just scroll to the bottom of our website and insert your email address into the form which says “Your email”.

Update: There is an unusual high number of newsletter subscribers. We suspect that these are fake emails. We are using Mailchimp to send out our newsletters, and we can see user ratings there. That means we can see if a user is reading a newsletter or not. At the end of the newsletter bounty campaign we will filter out all fake emails. Please be fair to the others.

Facebook Likes — 100,000 LISK

Give us a Facebook like and receive constant updates about Lisk and our ICO. We co-post every blog post and important announcement to Facebook.

Update: A small mistake happened here. We corrected the Facebook bounty fund to 100,000 LISK.

Twitter Followers — 200,000 LISK

Receive a regular stream of Tweets at our official Twitter account. We will keep you updated about Lisk, our website and our services. From time to time we will also post useful tips and tricks.

Signature Campaign — 200,000 LISK

Add our official signatures from our Bitcointalk OP to your Bitcointalk profile and receive a stake every week! This way many more crypto-currency enthusiasts will get in contact with Lisk.

In order to make a weekly list of all Bitcointalk users with our signature, they need to post to our Bitcointalk Thread at least once. We go through the whole thread once a week and write down all usernames.

Translations — 300,000 LISK

Everyone who participates in translation work will receive a stake in this category. So if you see that our Bitcointalk OP wasn’t translated into your language yet, then please contact us.

Bounties for translating our client will fall into this category as well. Client translators will receive 5 stakes, we are currently not looking for further client translators.

Many more information about our bounties are available on our blog post Overview of all available Bounties.

Bounty stakes: Week #1, Week #2
