Along with the unveiling of the brand new Lisk Development Roadmap , we are pleased to announce the beginning of the Lisk Improvement Proposal process. Lisk Improvement Proposals, also known as LIPs, form a proposal system which allows transparent and open discussion on how we develop the Lisk network and all the objectives disclosed on the new roadmap.

To put it simply, the objectives disclosed on the new roadmap provide a clear indication of Lisk’s direction, while LIPs provide the scientific backbone to this direction.
Lightcurve Science and Development teams have been trialing and refining the LIP process internally throughout this year. Today we are excited to reveal both the process and initial body of research produced during this timeframe. As the number of LIPs grows, we will continue to add to this, so please star and follow this repository to stay updated and involved.
We look forward to working together with the community in an open-source, collaborative manner using LIPs.
Let’s have a look at how LIPs are actually submitted. Please note that the process described below is intended as a general overview. Community members that would like to submit a guideline-compliant and technologically feasible LIP, please make sure to first read the full rules outlined in LIP-0001. You can also find the terminology used below in our dedicated LIP FAQ.
The first step in submitting a LIP is to check that the idea is feasible. Much of this early research and discussion will be conducted on our mailing list.
After checking the feasibility of the initial idea, the next ...
