Lisk CEO Discusses Partnership with Chain of Things

After an initial token crowdsale raising almost $2 million and being added to Microsoft’s Azure Blockchain-as-a-Service, Lisk CEO Max Kordek spoke about Lisk partnering with the blockchain-enhanced IoT research lab, Chain of Things.

Can you provide your name, your background in relation to blockchain/security/IoT and why you are interested in this Research project?    
My name is Max Kordek and I currently live in Aachen, Germany. Until recently I studied electrical engineering with a focus on computer engineering. This places me into the right context for Internet of Things research and development. Since I heard of Bitcoin three years ago I’ve also become a big supporter of blockchain technology. Together with my partner Oliver Beddows I founded Lisk, a decentralized application and custom blockchain platform for JavaScript developers. I see a huge potential for the combination of Blockchain technology and the Internet of Things. With Lisk we are looking forward to further innovate this sector, by providing customizable blockchains for everyone. Our end goal is an “Internet of Blockchains”, which still requires more research and open standards. For this reason we’re very interested into the Chain of Things research lab and hope that Lisk can provide valuable input.
