So, make sure your voice is heard and help in creating the future of Lisk!
The Lisk Play Contest
Last Friday, community member Lemii announce a new project called Lisk Play and its first contest.
Lisk Play is a fun tool enabling simple contests to be played for a nominal amount, utilizing the features and utility of LSK whilst showcasing a simple use case for transaction fields in explorer such as time, date, message, and so on with trivial value transactions.
The first Lisk Play contest is to predict the opening price of Bitcoin as at 00:00 on 2019/03/01. You can place you entry at the cost of 1 LSK and the closest prediction wins the sum of all the predictions.
Thanks to the generous sponsoring by StellarDynamic, liskpro.com, and zOwn3Ds the original price pool will get a boost.
You still have until the 16th of February to enter your prediction so make sure to participate and you might win the lot!

The Lisk Development Update
Last Thursday, LiskHQ released their bi-weekly developement blog post. This update has all the latest product releases and progress made in the last weeks.
As always, the blog post starts of with Lisk Core version 1.5.0 finished its development phase and is nearing a release to Testnet. Development of Lisk CoreLisk Core 1.6.0 started this week and will complete the last stages of the new system architecture LIP.
The blog post also has some more information about the next developement phase, called the Architecture and Design phase. This phase will be fully implemented in the next three (1.5.0, 1.6.0 and 1.7.0) releases of Lisk Core. Once the Architecture and Design phase is completed the Alpha version of Lisk’s SDK (Software Development Kit) can be released.
The blog continues with Lisk Elements on which the team finished the development of version 2.1.0. This version will implement features for the following Elements libraries: Transaction, Transaction-pool, P2P and continue integration with Lisk Core.
Next up is the Lisk Hub of which version 1.9.0 was released. This version includes the new Ledger Nano hardware wallet support. The Ledger integration works on Windows and MacOS. The feature is named ‘beta’ as LiskHQ continues to test and improve the user experience. This however has no impact on the security of the connection with the wallet.
For help with setting up your Ledger Nano to Lisk Hub, check out our Tech Evangelist Rachel’s walkthrough on Twitter.
Last Monday, LiskHQ released the first release candidate for the Lisk Hub 1.10.0. This version will introduce a completely redesigned login and registration process, new navigation menu and status bar. The development of version 1.11. is now in development.
For Lisk Mobile version 0.10.0 is close to being finished and it will enable 3D Touch, sending LSK via iMessage and German localization. The last means that the Lisk Mobile app will also be available to use in German language.
Last, but not least, the development of Lisk Explorer version 2.2.2 is ongoing and close to completion. This version will include UI fixes for both desktop and mobile.
As we can see progress is being made and it looks like we are closer to the SDK Alpha version as we might think!
