Realtime Lisk Transaction Visualizer
Lisk now has its own realtime Lisk transaction visualizer which was created by Lisk.chat member and Sapiens (sidechain) project founder Matteo (Hirish). On the visualizer you can see all the newly forged Lisk blocks and which delegate created it float by. The visualizer also shows the amount of LSK the blocks contain and you even have the option to turn the USD price to show the value of the transactions.
Capture These Lisk
This is a new series of challenges loosely based on the story of Lisk with a hint of pop culture. Capture These Lisk was created by delegates slasheks & gr33ndrag0n as a token of gratitude for the support of the community. The challenges will be separated by seasons, each consisting of ten or more challenges (episodes) of varying difficulty and involvement. The first person that manages to solve a challenge will be rewarded with a amount of LSK based on the perceived difficulty of the challenge. This season two challenges have already been released of which only one has been solved thus far. The new challenge will be released each Saturday at 14:00 UTC. So if you are having some trouble with this weeks challenge then you can always try your luck with the new episode which will be released in less then 6 days from now.

Are you planning on attending the Lisk HQ relaunch event on the 20th of February? Let us know and take part in our new promotion! LiskHQ is in favor of open-source development and embraces the idea of working together as a community in building an eco-system of products and services. Lisk.support has been the community platform to answer questions about the Lisk platform and sharing various kind of news articles. We have had some great feedback which keeps us motivated to continue our work. We like to ask the community to give back in helping us with promoting our platform by wearing our Lisk t-shirt at the upcoming Meetup in Berlin. As a bonus we will reward each person that wears a Lisk.support shirt with 1 LSK and an additional 2 LSK if you make a picture of yourself at the event wearing the shirt and tweet it to joo5tylisk.
This week Lisk.support team member Leongaban released the final post in our series: Planning a Dapp on Lisk Business Plan.

As always Leongaban uses some easy to understand examples to help explain each step.
