LiskHQ launches dev-focused forum
This new forum will be the place to collect and ask questions related to Lisk products, such as Commander and SDK (e.g.: How to sign a message with my passphrase?, How to register a custom transaction with your custom blockchain app?). This is the second active forum, as the other one is Lisk Research Forum, where you can propose and discuss Lisk Improvement Proposals.
This initiative lets anyone to read Lisk-related discussions without an account, making topics more visible and accessible than Discord, that remains the place for community chats and support.
Updates from ThePool activities
ThePool released ldice.sh script, to easily manage and install the ldice node. Ldice is a provably fair dice game made with lisk-sdk, that soon should be released with Lisk DEX testnet integration and treasury dividends. As the group needs more nodes on the network, the team is inviting Lisk supporters to set up a dedicated node. Ldice token symbol will be (LDT) Lisk Dice Token.
Jong’s Lisk Update
Since many months, delegate Jong has been working on Lisk DEX and in the last 30 days he improved signature and transaction propagation, rewrote the order book/matching engine to improve performances, published two new open source libraries and tested the DEX on Leasehold testnet. In addition, he also started working on a open source tool/framework called LDEM (Lisk Decentralized Exchange Manager), that aims to be a more efficient way to run a DEX node.
