Can a LIP, accepted as “proposed”, be rejected or withdrawn?

  • Apart from very special circumstances, a LIP that has been accepted as “proposed” will not be set back to a previous stage of approval.
  • However, it may be that a superior LIP addressing the same area makes it through the applications stage. At this point, the initial LIP is marked as “obsolete”.

We have updated the LIP Guidelines. Here are the main points of change:

  • The guidelines for reaching the status "Proposed" and for proposing a change to the network are less strict
  • A LIP reaches the status "Final" if it is implemented on the chain that is decided to be the Lisk blockchain by the Lisk Foundation.
  • The decision criteria of the Lisk Foundation are made more precise. Decisions with regard to instructing a third party to implement a LIP are based on technical and scientific arguments, feasibility and the objectives of the Lisk Foundation. Decisions with regard to accepting changes/forks are based on several factors, including the acceptance of nodes, delegates and exchanges. You can find the full version of LIP guidelines here.
