The Origins of Lisk
Lisk was a hard fork of Crypti; another cryptocurrency started by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows (co-founders of Lisk) They didn’t leave Crypti on good terms. The project failed, a misfortune that Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows attributed to an ICO that didn’t raise enough money. They made an exit, surrendered a lot of tokens and did a whole thing to save face. There is a whole series of articles on medium that explain what happened. Spend enough time in the right forums of Reddit, and you will find many a bitter Crypti investor, who think Lisk's cofounders should have gone down with the ship. The Lisk ICO lasted four weeks and raised a total of 14,000 BTC. At the time this was the second largest ICO ever. 80,742,575 XCR (Crypti tokens) were also traded for Lisk’s LSK tokens. Lisk raised significantly more money than Crypti. The founders also decided to build their team in Europe, so they can get everyone around the same table and on the same page. So far it is working, on May 24, 2016, the Lisk main net went live, and the token is fluctuating between $20 - $40.
