The Lisk program is written in both HTML5 and CSS3, and Nodes.js in the front and back respectively. It is designed to support fast procession of all the platform’s functions including network transactions while working asynchronously. The Lisk database incorporates SQLite for running complex queries and implementation into the platform. It is the first decentralized application written entirely in Nodes.js.
Lisk has three client solutions namely; Lisk, Lisk Lite, and Lisk Mobile. Lisk is the available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux and is best for super users, delegates and developers. Lisk Lite is a lightweight Lisk client for regular users who want to access their accounts regularly. For the users who wish to access their accounts on the go, Lisk mobile would be the ideal choice. Lisk Lite is available on both Mac OS and Windows while Lisk Mobile is available for both IOS and Android.
Lisk Lite utilizes modern technology which does not require an installation process. Since it’s not an act of network nodes, it uses an HTTP connection to connect the user with other online peers. Lisk has put in measures to ensure that the application remains small in size since the user is not required to download the blockchain. Lisk is based on Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS). Selected trusted accounts are elected to become active Delegates. The 101 delegate’s accounts which gain the most votes create the blocks.
