Lisk Foundation Releases Financial Update for October 2019

Global Data Chain
Korben introduced Global Data Chain, a decentralized Sidechain PoC build with the Lisk SDK. It can be used for storing various scientific measurements worldwide, such as global temperatures, radioactivity, rainfall, noise. With this wide range of collected data it is possible to gain insight in past conditions, analyse and predict future conditions and even see if there are any correlations between the different data stored on GDC.

LSK Listed in Abra App
Abra, founded in 2014, is a mobile wallet that supports around 70 cryptocurrencies and over 50 fiat currencies. It has been designed to simplify and make cheaper cash transfers and remittance payments. It attracted significant investment from many VC funds, raising approximately $35,5 million. The App allows users to buy and sell Bitcoin through bank transfers and MasterCard/ Visa/ American Express cards. Since November 13th, users can deposit, withdraw, buy, sell, and exchange LSK using the Abra iOS and Android app (source).
According to LiskMonitor, this week there were some movements in the delegates’ list. This trend is clearly linked with the recent announcements: some delegates that previously were in a group became independent. As it is no longer mandatory to vote for them and there are no statements about reward sharing, voters decided to shift mainly to Sherwood group, Endro, Moosty, Elevate, Liskpoland.pl, Lemii, Liskmagazine, Korben3, Gym.
