They have great marketing focusing on just a few key features. Mix that with a 5.7 million war-chest and you have some potential.

Exactly.  And when you think about some of the advantages Lisk has over ETH, then you can really see how incredible the potential is. 

By the way, I think success for Lisk is great for Bitshares considering they use DPoS (which Bitshares invented) so we may gain some attention and credibility from their success.

So I think we should all be rooting for Lisk!

Liskers, you need to generate your lisk ICO passphrase and back it up before the 4th of April ;)

PD : I do like the simple but elegant GUI of the testnet. Would it be a lot of work to reach that kind of user-frendly display ?
Maybe it's over simplistic but isn't it just some tweaking on a couple of CSS files ?
I'm a big fan of what we have right now but it's a little scary for anyone who is not a trader and used to these black trading interface.

I know all about LISK, and was even asked to be the 1 of three escow for the incoming bitcoins from the presale etc. but was too slow to confirm interest, well just one of those situations you might have wished to have had that extra hour or so that particular day.

That would have been a good move for CCEDK

@ccedk  Already 13,000 BTC raised. Regardless of price, the volume should be absolutely crazy.

We are in talks, so Iam sure we will find common ground

 +5%  Thank you for the follow-up.

@tbone you caught my interest anyways, so i have contacted LISK again, although we had already agreed to speak again up around launch time. :) ;)

Sounds good, Ronny.  For the record, my comment about the paid articles was not meant to diminish them.  I know it takes a lot of effort, and I do believe they help bring exposure.  My only point was that some people recognize paid articles, and ultimately the product has to have not only substance but also growing utility.  Having such a promising project like Lisk trading on the DEX could be a great shot in the arm, potentially generating a lot of attention and users. 

By the way, what do you think about partnering with MetaExchange and Blocktrades to jointly make markets in Lisk and help ensure successful bootstrapping of Lisk trading on the DEX?  Perhaps such an effort could also be supplemented to some extent by a concerted effort among individual community members to help provide liquidity as well.  If this works out, it could be a big win for all of us.

look all I  am saying is that I am not able to cover all ground all by myself,. I need to focus on the battles I know I can win, and let the rest come to me if I have the time, thats it.

And why do you enter comment about paid articles? The majority of all articles out there from my side are not paid but based on heavy work and lots of push, and I am proud of being able to generate this for free in many cases.

I cannot jump because you say I have to, sorry, I cannot. I have to stick to the plan and let you or anyone else really interested in making things like this happen start joining in and contributing doing some of the leg work yourselves, thats all. As I see it, it is in your own interest to do some of this work instead of telling me how I should do mine. Sorry if you feel like that about OBITS, but I cannot catch all the apples falling down and it does not help really you telling me its a must. What is helpful is if you participate in making it happen.

I don't talk about every coin that pops up.  I talk about and invest in the good stuff.  And it's not every day that such a promising ICO comes along.  Decred was a decent one.  But Lisk is in another category considering they will be a legit competitor of Ethereum and they have already raised almost $1M, and they are not even half way through the ICO. 

Ok, so you missed being an escrow agent.  What does that have to do with getting Lisk on the exchange?   And why are you saying they should be contacting you instead of vice versa?  One day devs of such promising projects will be seeking you out, Ronny.  But you have to get on the map first.  Here's a chance to take a nice step in the right direction.  All of your paid articles by themselves don't do much.  There needs to be more substance behind it.  I'm surprised and disappointed that you're not jumping at such an opporunity.

P.S.  I'm not just saying this as a large BTS shareholder.  I also have a decent stake in OBITS.  But I'm starting to regret some of my recent purchases.  FWIW

Lets just make one thing clear. It costs money to integrate a new currency, time and money in fact.

I have all the world of interest in adding currencies, but there is a new one popping up every week, and if we had to pay for this every time really not worth it. We have added Emercoin and nobdoy here seems to care, we have added 10 other ones with little interest. I added Qora to CCEDK due to demand from bts communty but that lost interest quick, so I am happy I never did pay to get it done as automode.

Why is it that I have to spend my time contacting these coins? The coins need to contact me, or anyone interested in having it added nee to contact them to establish the necessary connections. I do not have the time to search for the right person, then wait for response. I have tried this too many times with too much loss of time and lost efforts.

What is the criteria for being good? We all see that ETH is great, but most other coins jump and go down again.

Anyone willing to pay 4000 USD for the integration, I will be happy to add the currency right away, otherwise currencies will  be added based on a demand and guaranteed support of the communty from that coin, otherwise a waste of money.

I know all about LISK, and was even asked to be the 1 of three escow for the incoming bitcoins from the presale etc. but was too slow to confirm interest, well just one of those situations you might have wished to have had that extra hour or so that particular day.

@xeroc, have you even heard form Ronny lately? 
Not sure .. he may simple be on a one-week vacation ..

Perhaps.  But I brought this up starting with Decred 4 weeks ago.  Ronny responded once 2 weeks ago with an answer that didn't inspire much confidence that he sees the importance of this or that he is willing or capable of making it happen.  If we want to jumpstart the DEX, we better get with the program.  A good start would be to immediately make it clear that Lisk will trade here from day 1.  What are we waiting for??

Akado did an excellent follow-up with c-cex.  Perhaps he can help us with his biz dev skill by attracting Lisk and developing it into a First Lisk's exchange. Paging @Akado.

I just emailed them, nothing more.

Well, it's just a matter of getting into contact with them, but ultimately it's up to OpenLedger to decide if it wantst to support it. Although I think it is a good idea, somehow I think that isn't really on top of Ronny's priorities now. Plus he has a lot going on with obits, bitteaset, etc. I honestly think that's too much and the focus should be OpenLedger only and handling this type of stuff but I'm not the one managing it.

If OpenLedger wanted to get Lisk on the exchange it would need to participate on the ICO I guess, just to have some lisk and help kickstart the market.

Without Ronny or someone from OpenLedger wanting to get Lisk, we can't do much. Unless someone provides some type of bridge. Metaexchange and Blocktrades maybe? I believe if OL wanted to get Lisk in it would have shown more interest.

Maybe jonnybitcoin's exchange could have it but it seems a relatively new project and I doubt he could get it ready in time for it. Later than this it's pretty much useless. And rushing things just because of a cryptocurrency doesn't make sense too so...

I can get in contact with them but in the end it's really not worth it if there's no interest from our exchanges.

Rushing things?  I've been talking about this for several weeks (since Decred) and the Lisk ICO is still running for another couple weeks.  If you're an exchange and you're serious about attracting attention and new users, then you need to jump on opportunities like this.  Otherwise you should just give up.
