Lisk set to relaunch in February

Following a considerable slide, Lisk founder Max Kordek decided it was time to get back to the drawing board.  The cryptocurrency went through several months of operations to work out bugs and undergo a branding facelift, and is finally ready to make its reappearance in the crypto community.  The new and improved Lisk coin is scheduled to be unveiled on February 20.

The relaunch will see an increase in both marketing and media presence.  Additionally, Lisk’s 1.0 Core and the Lisk tool kit will be made available in alpha versions. Lisk provides a total platform based on the JavaScript programming language.  Apps run in their own sidechain, ensuring that the digital currency remains scalable and secure.  The Lisk platform enables the development of independent social networks, messaging apps and much more without the implementation of peer-to-peer networking protocols.  All decentralized apps can be built entirely on the user’s own blockchain.

The announcement has helped the digital coin see some positive growth.  At the end of 2017, Lisk was trading on exchanges at around $7.  It climbed to almost $30 at the beginning of the new year before settling around $20.  When it launched in May of 2016, the coin’s value was less than $1.  Part of its growth this year has come from the announcement that it could be listed on the Robin Hood trading app.  It is now trading at $25 and has a market cap of around $3.01 billion with 117.5 million virtual coins in circulation.
