LSK / USD Price Analysis: Under Siege

Lisk is bearish in the short-term, with the cryptocurrency still trading below its 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame The medium-term trading outlook for the LSK / USD pair remains bullish The daily time frame continues to show a bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern Lisk / USD Short-term price analysis LSK has a bearish short-term outlook, with the cryptocurrency still trading below its 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame. The four-hour time frame shows a valid head and shoulders pattern, with LSK / USD buyers now attempting to reverse the recent decline and invalidate the bearish pattern. Technical indicators are still bullish on the four-hour time frame and continue to signal further near-term gains.   LSK / USD H4 Chart by TradingView   Pattern Watch Traders should note that a much larger bearish head and shoulders pattern could take shape if the LSK / USD pair starts to decline. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator on the four-hour time frame is bullish, although it has moved into overbought territory. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the four-hour time frame has turned bullish, with the MACD signal line and histogram issuing a buy signal. Lisk / USD Medium-term price analysis LSK has a bullish medium-term outlook, with the cryptocurrency still trading above its trend defining 200-day moving average. The daily time frame is showing that the inverted head and shoulders pattern has reached its upside target, with LSK / USD bulls now needing to force price above the current 2019 trading high to encourage fresh technical buying. Technical indicators on the daily time frame are attempting to turn bullish alongside the recent advance in the LSK / USD pair.   LSK / USD Daily Chart by TradingView   Pattern Watch Traders should note that a bearish head and shoulders pattern could form on the daily time frame if buyers fail to move the LSK / USD pair to a new 2019 trading high. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator on the daily time frame has turned bullish as upside momentum continues to build. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the daily time frame is attempting to turn bullish alongside the recent advance in the LSK / USD pair. Conclusion LSK is attempting to build bullish momentum over both time horizons after finding strong technical support from its 200-day moving average. If sellers fail to invalidate the bearish pattern on the four-hour time frame, the LSK / USD pair could suffer even deeper losses and turn bearish over the medium-term.   Check out our coin guide for Lisk.

Developer Relations and Tech Evangelism With Rachel Black of Lisk

My first blockwatch of 2019 is an interview from late 2018 with Rachel Black of Lisk (@RachBLondon), in which we discuss the company, what’s coming up and the importance of developer relations/tech evangelism in the blockchain space.If you like what you read, listen to the full interview with Rachel below as it contains lots more Lisk titbits and pearls of wisdom.https://medium.com/media/d1f82dcf1411c0ee396ac32119442a04/hrefLisk (in a Nutshell)I’m not going to talk too much here about Lisk because I’ve done that already in a previous post you can read here.In summary, Lisk is a blockchain applications platform that provides developers with the tools they need to build decentralized apps (dApps).The Lisk team differ from many others in their space because they have a big focus on accessibility and have been working hard to create an ecosystem that’s both useful and usable for developers — things you’ll hear a lot more about in my interview with Rachel.From Web Development to Promoting BlockchainBecoming a Tech Evangelist at Lisk was a natural progression for Rachel.Having spent years in the web development space working with several London-based start-ups, she caught the blockchain bug after participating in a hackathon in 2017. Her new-found interest in blockchain saw Rachel attending more and more blockchain-focused meetups, and also organizing and speaking at them. Having landed a bespoke role as a blockchain evangelist and developer advocate at Lisk, Rachel is now in her element, helping to promote the technology and nurturing developer relations.What’s Been happening at Lisk Since I Spoke to Its CMO?Back in July 2018, I spoke with Thomas Schouten, head of marketing at Lisk about the company’s projects and the difficulties often faced when marketing something as complex as Blockchain.Naturally, I wanted to find out from Rachel what’s been happening since.The company released Lisk Core 1.0.0 to Mainnet — a development described by Lisk as its “biggest milestone to date.”Rachel also told me about two other big announcements:A revised Lisk development roadmap — A detailed document that breaks down where the company is now and where it wants to be in the short- and long-term future.Lisk Improvement Proposals (LIPs) — Technical and academic documents that detail what Lisk does on both a protocol and application layer to help increase transparency and add a solid technical backbone to the dev roadmap.Lisk Academic Partnerships and Use CasesRachel and I also discussed some exciting LIPs academic research partnerships, such one with King’s College London, which allows students and faculty members to work with this exciting (and growing) area.In terms of use cases, Lisk is actively hiring on the business development side of things, and Rachel mentioned that Lisk is actively researching and looking for its first large industrial projects.Are People Building With Lisk?While the Lisk main chain is operational, right now, people can only run nodes and build apps that interact with it on a currency level (transactions and voting for delegates).However, future SDK offerings will center on allowing people to create side chains and set up custom transactions specific to their use case.Once the Lisk architecture and design phase is complete, the first SDK offering (Alpha SDK) will follow. The Alpha SDK will be for more adventurous developers, but a Beta SDK and Release Candidate SDK will follow, removing a lot of the pain for devs.A Day in the Life of a Tech Evangelist/Developer AdvocateRachel’s role is relatively new, especially in the European blockchain space. Improving and building close developer relationships is essential for such a highly-technical product as blockchain, and the more forward-thinking companies in the ecosystem are starting to recognize this.Rachel is passionate about communicating with devs, finding out what they are doing, understanding their needs, and listening to their pain points. It’s a vital role that acts as a bridge between marketing and engineering, and that looks at how best to reach out to developers outside of the blockchain space and get them interested. This task is particularly challenging (and important) because of the skepticism that surrounds blockchain.For example, as part of the company’s wider advocacy drive, Lisk team members were at both React Day Berlin and TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin last year, despite them falling on the same day.While the current cryptocurrency bear market isn’t great for tradable tokens right now, it is providing Lisk the opportunity to make some serious progress. That’s because more devs + fewer traders = an excellent time to develop.Image Source — Take the LeadOriginally published at https://dzone.com.Developer Relations and Tech Evangelism With Rachel Black of Lisk was originally published in Hacker Noon on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

AT&T Will Now Accept Bitcoin For Your Phone Bill

US-based mobile users can now use bitcoin and cryptocurrency to pay their bill thanks to a new partnership between AT&T and BitPay. AT&T Will Take Your Bitcoin Bitcoin’s path to mass adoption continues forward as major US telecom giant AT&T has announced that customers now have the option to pay their bills in cryptocurrency. The addition of crypto payments makes AT&T the first major U.S. mobile carrier to offer this option and Kevin McDorman, AT&T’s vice president of Communications Finance Business Operations said: We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services [and] we have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer. Currently, the crypto payments are limited to bill payment only and AT&T did not specify whether customers would be able to purchase smartphones and other accessories online or in AT&T’s brick and mortar stores. Customers interested in making crypto payments can simply select BitPay as the payment option when they login to their accounts online or through the myAT&T app. Will Corporations FOMO into Cryptocurrency? AT&T is not the first major US-based corporation to accept cryptocurrency payments as Overstock, Expedia, Subway, Shopify, and Microsoft are just a few of the major multinational corporations accepting crypto payments. Just recently, Whole Foods and a slew of other big-name retailer have also started accepting bitcoin via another third-party payment partnership. But considering AT&T’s name recognition and dominance in the telecom sector the announcement is sure to make waves and is extremely positive news for the cryptocurrency sector. Are you going to spend your bitcoin on a cell phone bill? — Mr.Hodl (@MrHodl) May 23, 2019 As one would expect, not everyone is over-the-moon about the telecom’s new found love for cryptocurrency. Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano excitedly tweeted the news and is currently being bombarded by an array of semi-skeptical replies to AT&T’s announcement.
