The CoinCodeCap Ranking
On the website we can see that Lisk is ranked in first place out of all Blockchain projects on commits over the last three months time. The LightCurve development teams created a total of 5494 GitHub commits leaving behind Waves and Insolar. The Lisk GitHub page also has around 955 watchers and a total of 760 contributors.
It’s nice to see Lisk once again being ranked first and there being that much activity in its development!
January’s Elite Report
On Monday, the Elite Delegate Group released their monthly report in which we can read about the work and promotion Elite did to expand the Lisk ecosystem.
The report starts of with EliteX exchange which opened for testing on January 2nd. EliteX will be the world’s first exchange platform based on the Lisk ecosystem.
Last month, the second Lisk Elite Center in Tokyo (Japan) officially started to operate. The incubator hopes to provide a good startup environment for developers to create promising projects. At the start of the year, the first Elite Center in Xiamen (China) got a visit from Mr. Chen Haiteng, the CEO of the Huobi exchange.
The report continues with some of the events Elite members attended. Leah, the operation director of Elite Center, attended the Global Fintech Innovation Summit in Haikou. Some Lisk Elite members together with Aslan and Leah also visited the Xiamen Shengjiang Group, which mainly engages in traditional industries at present.
Last, but not least, Elite announced that Carbonara is developing a complete offline wallet app solution for Lisk. An offline wallet does not require any internet connection and has the ability of generating Lisk transactions offline. This provides the user with a higher level of security as your passphrase will never be shared online.
It’s good to see things happening for Lisk in Asia and the Elite group bringing a new offline wallet app to the community!
A New Lisk Foundation Board Member
In the blog post we can read that Benedikt’s joining follows the departure of Pascal Schmid from the board, due to the Foundation’s parting of ways with Sielva Management SA.
Benedikt has already been contributing professionally to Lisk as early as 2017 as its freelance legal advisor. He is also an early community member and adopter of the LSK token with an in-depth knowledge of the Lisk ecosystem. His role will be to help Lisk in overseeing regulatory matters as well as provide strategic advice.
It’s great to see LiskHQ hiring an experienced board member with knowledge of Lisk so on behalf of LiskUSA welcome to the team!
