Lisk (LSK) – In today’s society being associated with Microsoft is a big deal no matter where you are situated in the world. What many people don’t know is that Lisk (LSK) partnered up with Microsoft way back in the early 2016’s.

Listed in BitFlyer exchange
Getting listed is always great for a cryptocurrency. Lisk experienced this when it was listed on the Japanese exchange known as Bitflyer. The cryptocurrency shot up in value after the listing and rose from $21.63 to $35.26 in half an hour after the announcement! The altcoin rose in value from $21.50 to $36.27 growing by a whopping 65% after the news went public.
There was so much interest in the altcoin that Bitflyer actually crashed. The exchange experienced some downtime and early investors who had locked in positions with Lisk cryptocurrency got some attractive returns as soon as the exchange came back up.
The price of the altcoin dipped after the listing’s heat had cooled down. Despite that, Lisk is still trading on Bitflyer at a price which indicates the potential for growth through the rest of the year.
This was a groundbreaking development for Lisk because Bitflyer famously only holds 5 other altcoins. Thus, Lisk joins an exclusive club in a high volume exchange. The move confirmed to long-term investors that the altcoin is guaranteed to do well in 2018. The good news kept flowing in for the cryptocurrency after Robinhood expressed interest in listing the altcoin.
