Before the launch of Mainnet, Lisk price jumps by + 20%

Lisk price jumps by + 20%

The German cryptocurrency Lisk has announced the launch of its Mainnet by the end of August. Probably, the Lisk price has risen by over 20 percent.

The migration to Lisk Core 1.0 to Mainnet should be at a block height of 6,901,027, leaving Lisk core 0.9.16 behind. The set date is Wednesday, August 29, 2018. Thus, the Mainnet launch is only 12 days away.

The development team of Lisk pointed out that no transactions should be executed 24 hours before, during and after the launch. Also, the withdrawal and deposit should wait until the team of Lisk shows the green light and all migration processes are finally completed.

Lisk offers users the opportunity to create their own blockchain as well as dApps. The platform also provides Sidechains, an open-source software development kit (SDK) with the integrated back-end, front-end, and consensus algorithm for plug-and-play developers.
Furthermore, it should be possible to align ICO’s on the Lisk Blockchain. On 01.09.2018, MADANA is already launching its first Initial Coin Offering, which will show how solid the Blockchain and the Lisk ecosystem really are. It should be possible that Lisk can communicate with other blockchains within the network.

Unlike Bitcoin, which is written in C ++ and Ethereum in Solidity, Lisk is based on Javascript. The two Lisk founders Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows deliberately opted for Javascript to address a large developer community around the world that already knows the programming language well, making it easy to get started.

All dApps on the platform are registered in Lisk Mainchain, so users can easily search for apps similar to browsing the Google Play Store for an app. Third-party developers can add descriptions, categories, icons, and tags to better identify their products.

As soon as the Mainnet starts, the team wants to integrate a new API design as well as additional functions, such as a new data field. In this data field, users can add a message to their transaction.

As a result of this announcement, the price of Lisk rises + 20.73 percent at the time of writing (9:00 am) to a price of 3.93 USD. With a market capitalization of just under 428 million USD, Lisk is on the 22ndplace of the largest cryptocurrencies worldwide.
