Yesterday was undoubtedly one of the worst for crypto markets for a long time. Over 20% fell off the total market capacity in one day alone, a crash only eclipsed by the January 15-17 selloff which resulted in a 40% market decline. As usual one altcoin shines above the rest during today’s Asian trading session and that accolade goes to Lisk.
LSK had been trading sideways at around $22 for the past week or so. It is one of the few altcoins that shows considerable resilience to large market swings, Ethereum is another. The price of LSK shot to the moon yesterday at 05.30 UTC when it jumped 60% to $36 in around half an hour. Since then the market has corrected and Lisk has returned to around $25 where it currently trades. LSK has made steady gains of around 35% over the past month and is up 25% on the day.
Lisk currently has a market capacity of $2.9 billion, it is 16th in the market cap chart at the time of writing and there are 117 million tokens in supply. Most of the trade in LSK is made on Binance, closely followed South Korean exchange Upbit, and Bittrex.
