Mission Statement

The Lisk Foundation was created by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows in an effort to empower and connect future blockchain creators. Lisk’s biggest goals are to lower barriers and foster widespread blockchain adoption. Utilizing the accessible language of JavaScript, Lisk removes the intimidation factor that is often associated with this technology.


The power of education and democratic inclusion will also change the way connected systems work now and tomorrow. With the help of board member Benedikt Schuppli, Oliver and Max support the Lisk Foundation and its greater ecosystem in promoting the advantages of blockchain technology.
