Main updates in LiskHQ website
In the last week, many announcements came from HQ about improvements in its website.
The team added a network page, providing to visitors some statistics about Lisk Network.

In addition, they launched the Lisk Enterprise Portal on Lisk.io, as a way to collaborate with small or medium-sized enterprises on proof of concept development. This landing page aims to be the place to connect companies and businesses that are looking for blockchain applications with LiskHQ. The team needs to learn more about business requirements and challenges. More information will be added lately, such as comparisons between blockchain SDKs or use case analyses.
The portal shows how companies can use Lisk to get benefits in Supply Chain, using it for food supplies and to guarantee the origin and storage during the transport; in Public Sector and how governments can utilize blockchain technology to optimize processes and increase accountability; or in Financial Services, as an alternative to fiat currency systems and to enable the decentralization of traditional finance (DeFi).

Chip to chain’ selected for Lisk builders program
Caspar Gimly announced to have been selected by LiskHQ program, that will fund his proposal to store and secure IoT temperature sensor data directly on the blockchain through connected NFC chip.
He will work on the project together with one of his Odyssey team members, Thomas Modeneis, a developer that is also contributing to the Polkadot project and Dusk network. They are aiming to expand the team, as they need someone with more IoT experience.
More tech aspects and the tech proposal are available in the #co-working-mondays channel in LCU chat (invite link).

LCU follows up on digital identity research activities
LCU completed the first study day about digital identity concepts. The day started with an introduction to the resources about Self-Sovereign Identity, the foundational components of an open, standards-based, decentralized identity ecosystem and inspirational videos (e.g. Christopher Allen on Decentralised Identity). Marnix van den Bent (Rabobank accelerator lab) held 2 sessions that day, presenting the technical components of their ULA (Universal Ledger Agent).
They used a shared whiteboard to write down notes and thoughts. The next tasks are listed in the Github folder and the next 1h session is held today (Monday 6th April) at 1 pm CET.
