Lisk DEX

NOTE: The Lisk DEX (working title) is composed of the following component repositories: Lisk DEX: Core, Lisk DEX: Service, and Lisk DEX:UI. The Lisk DEX: Core being the equivalent of Lisk Core (the blockchain application backend). The Lisk DEX: Service being an extension of Lisk Service (the blockchain application middleware between Core and the UI). The Lisk DEX: UI being the blockchain application frontend. Going forward, the objectives of the Lisk DEX will be grouped accordingly (Core/Service/UI).

Initial goals for 2022:

  • ✅ Release Lisk Service v0.6.0, Lisk Desktop v2.2.0/v2.3.0, and Lisk Mobile v2.0.0 into production, thus completing the Emerald phase for these products
  • ✅ Complete the development of Lisk SDK v6.0.0 until the point of achieving "Base Interoperability", thus allowing alpha testing to start
  • Start the development of Lisk Core v4.0.0, Lisk Service v0.7.0, Lisk Desktop v3.0.0, and Lisk Mobile v3.0.0, thus commencing the implementation of the Sapphire roadmap phase (towards "Base - Interoperability")
