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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world. Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
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…
