GDT Rewards The Community

The Global Delegate Team (GDT) thinks it’s important to show some appreciation to community members who do special work for the Lisk ecosystem.

This is why they recently created the GDT Bounty fund which is used to reward some of the most hardworking Lisk community members.

Last night, they announced the bounty winners for December.  The following 10 Liskers were rewarded with 160 LSK tokens each : Przemer, Lemii, zOwn3Ds, Lisk.central.america, Lisknews, Sexor, TonyT908, Prolina, Endro, and Elevate.

Congratulations to all the winners and great job GDT on this motivating initiative!

The Lisk Foundation Expands

Today, LiskHQ released a new blog post where they welcomed back Guido Schmitz-Krummacher to the Lisk Foundation.

Guido is coming back as the Managing Director with a primary focus on Lisk’s administrative, legal, and financial well being. He will use his international law background and Swiss regulatory system knowledge to make sure Lisk makes full use of Crypto Valley’s ecosystem.

Guido will also create regular reports and present his work’s results to the Foundation Council.

LiskHQ also expands their Zug office team with two new hires. The first being Marcin Zarakowski who joins as the legal counsel. He will drive progress in compliance, corporate issues, and management of intellectual property.

The second hire is Camelia Ionela Mikesch who has joined as the foundation’s accounting manager and will help oversee its finances.

It’s really good to see that Lisk’s administration, legal and finances are being taken care of by a team of experts!

Lisk Received A KuCoin Promotion

Last Monday, KuCoin made an official announcement in which the LSK token was promoted to the KuCoin Plus Trading Area.

Tokens which are promoted to the Plus Trading Area have already completed a strict screening process done by KuCoin. They are also considered by them as well performing projects with less risk than the tokens traded in the main market.

To be upgraded, projects must meet a number of criteria. These are being ranked in the top 40 on coinmarketcap.com, have a well-performing trading volume within the market, and continually pass the regularly ratings test after the initial rating.

It’s great to see Lisk getting recognition from KuCoin with this promotion and being ranked as a well performing project!

The Official Opening Of The Elite Center

On the 25th of January the Elite Center Japan will host a meetup to celebrate the official opening of the Center.

The event will start of with an welcomes video by Lisk’s CEO Max Kordek after which the manager of the Elite Center will give a introduction on how the Center came about and what the Center will be used for.

After the introduction there will be presentations by Dr. David Zhang, president and representative director of BTC Box Co , and Mr. Eileen of EliteX CMO for Asia. Last, but not least, there will be a guest speaker which has yet to be announced.

After these presentations there will be time to network and for the attendees to meet the events speakers. As this is an official LiskHQ sponsored event there will be drinks and snacks provided and to celebrate the opening there will be a lottery draw where attendees can win a special price.

Unfortunately, all tickets for this event have already given out but we will likely see an update shortly after the event took place!
