NFT Tokens on Lisk, a use case presented during #WeAreDevelopers
Nazar Hussain, Senior Backend Developer at LiskHQ, introduced the Lisk SDK and showcased how it is used to build a blockchain application in JavaScript during the WeAreDevelopers conference.
WeAreDevelopers hosted its second series of webinars and online events, after the success of the first edition with more than 12,000 participants and 40+ speakers.
Watch the Nazar’s presentation here.
Nazar introduced the features integrated in Lisk SDK 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0, that will lead to the final released version. As a proof of that, he announced that in one year LiskHQ has produced 850+ issues, 790+ Pull Requests and 30+ LIPs.
The explanations were very technical and the focus of the first part was the showcase of the three core achitecture traits: the flexibility of the on-chain architecture, the integrability of the off-chain one and the openness of the communication architecture.

During the slide showed above Nazar specified that the use cases supported by the SDK will be only the ones in the upper areas, because the initial version of the SDK will not support Smart Contracts as we know them. Other developers could build more modules and provide smart contract behaviours but the released SDK will not have those modules.
He also presented how to build non-fungible tokens (NFTs), a topic that is getting traction in crypto ecosystem, describing the passages using this demo.
