Lisk.Bike, a PoC to Showcase What Can Be Done With the Lisk SDK - Lisk Magazine

Joost announced the launch of Lisk.Bike, a Proof of Concept made in The Netherlands to showcase how to build Lisk applications using the alpha SDK. This PoC is focused on the development of a blockchain-based GPS tracking lock for bike rental, a huge market in that region.

The initiative is lead by Marc Buma, Founder at, that is one of the partners of the Lisk Center Utrecht. Marc is skilled in User Experience, Web Applications, Blockchain development, Cryptocurrency, and Mobile Applications and experienced in IOT development. Marc organizes also tech workshops to teach how to setup the Lisk node and help developers to do some trials with the SDK.

Exploiting this trend, Marc aims to develop this concept by fitting a bike with a GPS tracking lock, building a Javascript application and using the Lisk blockchain for data registration. Information like who is using the bike, when and its location will be immutable registered on the Lisk blockchain in its own separate sidechain.

The goals of this project are to give feedback to LiskHQ about how to improve documentation and development; to showcase what can be done with the Lisk alpha SDK and to inspire visitors/developers at the LCU to start building with the alpha SDK. The PoC is not developed to be evolved in a real company, nor to earn a profit. For this reason the team is opening a crowdfunding campaign, looking for 5000 LSK (Lisk donation wallet address is 11629240136553438599L). All the funds will be spent on PoC development, like the...
