Lisk has noted an amazing progress during the last week as it was following up with the market trend that made the majority of currencies to go up while trading in the green. Lisk is one of the currencies with an increased trading volume, which, of course, drawn the attention of the new investors as well. So, while there is a large portion of people investing in LSK for quite some time now, we are interested in analyzing all the reasons for having Lisk worthy of your investment.

Abra Adds Lisk to its Digital Wallet

Abra is one of the most commonly used digital wallet applications for easy storing and user-friendly trading of cryptocurrencies. That being said, getting listed on Abra makes up for a great deal for any currency of that kind of luck.

Lisk has just become one of such currencies as Abra announced adding this digital asset a couple of days ago.

Abra’s own CEO has announced that their digital wallet application will soon enable all users to easily buy and trade Lisk along with four other currencies that are being added alongside with LSK.

Abra makes possible dealing with over 50 different fiat currencies, which makes this application very simple to use, which means it is made to be user-friendly for a better experience and easier handling of the listed coins.

In addition to this case, Abra is offering the service of buying and selling cryptocurrencies with no fees or charges included in these exchanges. The app also doesn’t ask for a deposit, which makes it pretty accessible and altogether a pretty valuable addition to the world of cryptocurrencies.

Besides from adding Lisk, Abra’s CEO stated that their app will also be adding NEM, Verge, NEO, and Monero, so all users will soon be able to trade with all these currencies as well in addition to trading with 25 other currencies that have been already listed.

Needless to say, Abra might be one of the top reasons to consider owning Lisk at the current moment.

Lisk and the Partnership with Microsoft?

Lisk has teamed up with Microsoft two years ago in 2016 when this currency was announced to become a part of Microsoft Blockchain-as-a-Service project which included creating Azure Blockchain.

Lisk was supposed to be a part of this project and the announcement of this initial venture probably brought up a dose of popularity LSK needed at the time as everything Microsoft gets interested in, can’t be ignored.

There was even a press release stating that Lisk is going to provide the base of the Internet of Things for their project, named Azure, as well as to provide all needed guides and templates that would make the Internet of Things possible.

Due to the fact that Lisk is a decentralized blockchain platform with the aim of revolutionizing the world of cryptocurrencies, together with its technology that allows decentralized applications to be made on top of Lisk’s platform chains, Microsoft has found this digital asset interesting for the development of their project, Azure Blockchain.

This case made a lot of investors “chip in” on Lisk, raising its price as a consequence. Lisk is now rising up at a pretty stable pace of growth again, but the partnership with Microsoft is possibly not one of the reasons why because Azure haven’t been related to Lisk for a long time now.

It is been said that Lisk stepped out and dropped the project as they believe that their technology has yet to grow in order to be able to support a project of such scale.

However, that statement doesn’t exclude the fact that Lisk might soon be ready for this cooperation or for a similar venture that could easily sky-rocket this digital asset to the moon.

Lisk and Its Stability

Another one reason to consider owning Lisk is the fact that LSK has shown some great performance in the terms of showcasing its stability in oppose to the market trends. Even though the great market crash that lasted for weeks took over 50% away from the total market cap of all cryptos put together, Lisk has kept its calm while not losing much in oppose to the majority of dropping currencies.

That is how Lisk has easily become a target of investors that are playing in the long run with wanting to invest in a coin with a stable rate of increases and drops, to make sure they won’t lose much in addition to earning a pretty flattering profit in the course of a couple of years.

The level of volatility that Lisk has shown while climbing up from 10$ to dealing at the price of a bit over 14$ in only two days makes up for another good reason for owning Lisk.

How is Lisk doing at the Current Moment?

Ranked as 22nd-best currency on the list in accordance with its market capitalization, Lisk is doing a great job for the past two days, especially at this moment as this digital asset broke through the value of 14$ per one LSK unit.

After the latest change in the market, Lisk has gone up against the dollar for another 6.16% while trading in the green.

LSK is also trading up against BTC at the moment of this writing, which means that Lisk is doing slightly better than Bitcoin at this point as LSK went up for 4.32% against the original coin.

LSK can be currently purchased at the price of 14.12$ per one unit, which is still away from its record value.

Lisk has made its record price back in January during the golden time for cryptos when it was trading at the price of around 38$ per one unit. In case Lisk would continue to grow at this rate, it could easily reach its all-time high in the following months.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
