###Last Updated: December 2, 2019 Hello and welcome to the official Lisk subreddit! ###Lisk empowers individuals to create a more **efficient** and **transparent global economy.** **Please be mindful before posting.** It is likely that someone has already asked the same question before you so please search the sidebar and use it as a directory prior to submitting your post. In addition, I've created this *Getting Started Guide* as a repository of resources that guides you to answers from commonly asked questions. ### [What is Lisk?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnMrIgSoiJQ) **A Blockchain Application Platform | Cryptocurrency | Peer to Peer Network | Framework (SDK) | Global Movement |** * Lisk is an open source blockchain platform that will enable developers to build blockchain applications in JavaScript. With Lisk, developers may build [blockchain applications](http://www.blockchaintechnologies.com/blockchain-applications) which utilize their own sidechain interlinked to the Lisk platform. Thanks to the scalability and flexibility of sidechains, developers can implement and customize their blockchain applications entirely. Lisk is a non-profit organization, founded in 2016 by [Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows](https://blog.lisk.io/welcome-to-lisk-this-is-us-746d745e44b6#.j2hk816xo). ### [Lisk Foundation](https://lisk.io/lisk-foundation) * Max Kordek (Co-Founder, CEO) | Oliver Beddows (Co-Founder, CTO) ###[The Lisk Roadmap & LIPs](https://lisk.io/roadmap) * **[Sign up for our newsletter to get roadmap updates straight to your inbox](https://mailchi.mp/lisk/newsletter)** * **[Sign up for the LIPs Mailing List to view and contribute to discussions specific to Lisk Improvement Proposals](https://lists.lisk.io/mailman/listinfo/lips_lists.lisk.io)** ###Who is building Lisk?
