Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
Digital currencies are very high risk. Do not invest money you can’t afford to lose. Please consider the suitability of crypto for your individual position before trading.
What is Lisk (LSK)
Switzerland-based Lisk bills itself as a “blockchain application platform" and it is specifically tailored to simplify the process of creating blockchain applications, according to the lisk.com website.
Launched in 2016 by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows, Lisk was one of the first development ecosystems to gain traction within the crypto space and it now enjoys fully decentralized governance, secured by a delegated proof-of-stake (dPoS) consensus mechanism (Messari).
LSK is the network’s native currency, a governance token also used to pay transaction fees (CoinGecko).
Lisk insists it lives to let developers more easily create decentralized applications (dApps). Underscoring that ethos, the protocol enables dApps to be written in traditional programming languages like Java and Typescript, helping to streamline the development process for programmers with limited blockchain experience, CoinGecko said.
The dApps built on the protocol are individually secured via a unique sidechain structure connecting with the broader Lisk network.
