Do I need to be technical to use Lisk?

No, you don’t! Lisk strives to make blockchain technology accessible for everybody. A seamless user experience on the Lisk platform and easy to understand documentation should make it possible for anyone to send LSK, download applications and educate themselves without having a deep technical knowledge and expertise. To learn more about blockchain technology visit Lisk Academy.

However, in order to build your own blockchain application, you will be required to understand JavaScript programming language. By offering an SDK (Sidechain Development Kit) written in JavaScript, Lisk provides millions of developers around the world with an accessible entry point to blockchain technology. Developers will be able to create, build and deploy their own sidechain connected to Lisk's mainchain.
