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.

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.

KaratGold Background

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
