Anyone who has been on the lookout for the promising coins, have surely noticed Lisk in the pool of progressive currencies with bold ideas. With the launching of new Decentralized Apps, Lisk is climbing up, both in price and in the market demand. Let’s see how Lisk has been doing these days as well as check out what sort of Dapps this coin is working on.
A Reminder about Lisk
The application is shown with its interface and available for all interested users, while all developers can earn through this ecosystem and share their app with the Lisk community.
The main chain represents the home of LSK as a currency and it provides a hosting service for Lisk. This hub will soon be available as a platform where developers will soon be able to launch their ICO among all other neat things.
The team behind Lisk strongly believes that the future of business, the internet, the currencies and the way technology works all lie within the blockchain technology. With this idea, they are creating a new decentralized ecosystem with the main goal of creating a globally influential decentralized platform.
That is how Lisk team is not stopping at what they have made, but are working on further development of this currency and its decentralized ecosystem.
Lisk and LSK Game-changing Dapps
LSK and Sapiens Project
The idea behind this project is so simple and yet this decentralized app turns out to be a real game-changer. You know that time when someone asks you to share your certificate, diploma, your transcripts or a confirmation that you have attended this or that class? There is a case that we are asked to show our degree and prove our professional training by showing a copy of our diploma or a similar verification method, but this sounds a lot easier and simpler than it actually is.
Sometimes you need to send, receive and reply to a tone of emails before you can get to your certificates and diplomas and before you can send them to a review to the other party. That is how Lisk is hosting a pretty neat project, called Sapiens Project. With this application, you no longer need to worry about having your certificates and diplomas lost or damaged, or hard to get to because this application is made to allow all users to have their certificates and diplomas highly accessible. This application is fully decentralized and based on blockchain technology, making it fast and cost-effective as well as easy to use.
LSK and Rencoin.io
Rencoin.io exists as a side chain to Lisk ecosystem and it offers a decentralized application that was created to encourage children to read and learn. The motivation all users are getting by reading and learning are being handed out in form of REN currency. The children are rewarded with REN currency that is being stored in their wallet in form of a savings account. The savings can be administrated either by the parents or by children and can also be used for exchange or purchasing where REN currency is accepted. We bet more children will like learning this way!
LSK and Mandana.io
This is another side chain platform existing within Lisk and it allows users to control the way their data is being shared. What we rarely think about is the fact that we are constantly sharing our data and personal information: we are sharing data every day through online interactions and even when we are buying something at the market. With this decentralized application, you can choose whether your data remains completely anonymous or whether you are sharing your data with a third party representative.
LSK and Brikbit.io
Real estate agents can be pretty expensive so when you are buying a real estate or investing in real estate, a great portion of the money goes to the third party representatives. On this side chain, you can easily invest in property shares and purchase real estate without the presence of the middleman, that way saving money and sealing more cost-effective deals.
LSK and Moosecoin.io
Getting into the music business can be pretty tough, especially with great record labels watching over you. With this side chain, LSK allows you to make your own business plans and raise funds for your music business without the third parties involved. This Dapp will allow you to get to the people who care about your music and who will help you out with getting your art out there.
How is Lisk doing at the current moment?
In the end, we are all also interested in the price of our favorite coins and tokens, so here is how LSK has been doing for the past couple of weeks.
On February 17th, LSK showed an immense progress when this currency jumped for 11.09% against the dollar, that way trading in green at the price of over 35$ per one unit. Needless to say that this was a major success for LSK as at this time this currency was the closest it has ever been to its all-time high price. LSK’s all-time high was marked at 37.80$. While this currency was ranked as 14th best coin according to global coin ranking list, it is now listed as the top 19th currency.
In case Lisk would have continued to progress up at the same pace, the coin could have easily go pass its all-time high, but the currency fell down with its price soon after the last week’s peak.
LSK is now available at the price of 19.14$ per one unit as it had the latest drop of -6.19% against the dollar, which made this currency start trading in the red.
Lisk was holding on well, spinning around the price of a bit over 20$ per one unit, but it eventually dropped to the current price. The latest drop might possibly be the result of a massive selloff as many people wanted to cash in on the latest gains this currency has gone through.
For now, LSK is trading in red, but it will surely go up in no time as Lisk is doing an amazing job with deploying interesting and cost-effective, easy accessible Dapps.
As of the most recent changes, LSK has launched a new interface that is set to be all about accessibility. The developers claim that they find very important to have all users who are not clear with what blockchain technology is, educated and well informed on all important aspects of this technology. That is how their new interface and improved features go in favor of both, people who are still entering the world of digital value and people who are easily finding their way around decentralized technology.
We will be updating our subscribers as soon as we know more. For the latest on LSK, sign up below!

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more. One of the ways to have a successful trading…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
XENO starts VIP NFT trading service and collaborates with contemporary artist Hiro Yamagata
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 24th December, 2020, // ChainWire //
The XENO NFT Hub (https://xno.live) will provide a crypto-powered digital items and collectables trading platform allowing users to create, buy, and sell NFTs. Additionally it will support auction based listings, governance and voting mechanisms, trade history tracking, user rating and other advanced features.
As a first step towards its fully comprehensive service, XENO NFT Hub launched a recent VIP service to select users and early adopters in December 2020 with plans for a full Public Beta to open in June 2021.
“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
