From Crypti to Lisk

In June 16th, 2014 it all began with Crypti and the Crypti Foundation. A founding team of 5 members set themselves the goal to develop a great cryptocurrency platform for decentralized applications and sidechains, they collected 750 BTC in their ICO and developed the platform for over one year. Max and Oliver were early members of the team and foundation. At the turn of the year 2016 ideologies were drifting apart and we decided to make our own platform called Lisk. It is being developed in a complete open source and public manner, and in collaboration with the Lisk community.
