The latest version of Explorer has been announced by Lisk, called Lisk Explorer 1.6.0. The new version brings several stability patches and most importantly improved User Experience [UX] for mobile devices. And the new desktop UI functions same as before.This release matches the Lisk.io design that was introduced in February.
The release makes the search feature available on a small smartphone screen. The magnifying glass icon allows the users to look for certain transactions, block accounts, delegate public keys or block heights.
To make the view more mobile friendly, the rank column has been removed and an address shortener is introduced. With the help of address shortener, it is possible to see approximate one’s balance [decimal places are truncated] and percentage stake of market cap. Spacing has been optimized to make it more user friendly on smaller screens. The current sorting algorithm deals efficiently with columns.
Lisk also uses Explorer’s backend API for a chart displaying the value of Lisk. The backend is much more resistant to invalid responses from various third-party services such as cryptocurrency exchanges. In the upcoming weeks, Lisk will focus on minor fixes to polish up the new explorer.
Michal, a Lisk Team member says:
“Our fronted team put a great deal of effort into making the application similar to the other apps in the Lisk ecosystem. We are maintaining high coding standards, therefore, in the following weeks, we are going to be focused on improving automated tests.”
Lonut Scirlet a Twitter user says:
“Great UX on the new phone. Makes it easy to find my transactions.”
Another Twitterati commented:
“Time to buy more, this is seriously undervalued”
A Redditor says:
“General tools like top accounts, market watcher, network monitor and delegate monitor have also implemented the new design.”

Bitcoin will likely be valued at $100,000 with a market cap of over $2 trillion before the end of 2021
The entire cryptocurrency market seems to be on the brighter side of the market since the beginning of the year. A majority of the coins have recorded significant recoveries from their 2018 slump, a period during which most coins lost over 90 percent of their value, when compared to their all-time highs. Among all the coins in the market, Bitcoin [BTC] aka the digital gold, was noted to be making a massive comeback as the coin breached the $11,000 mark after nearly 15 months. The coin however, soon retracted to settle below the $11,000 level.
According to CoinMarketCap, at press time, Bitcoin was trading at $10,887.27 with a market cap of $93.549 billion. The coin recorded a 24-hour trading volume of $20.757 billion for the past 24 hours and saw a massive rise of over 17 percent over the past seven days.
Anthony Pompliano, Co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets, predicted that the largest digital currency could rise to reach $100,000, before the end of 2021. Pomp added that he was around 70-75 percent confident in this prediction. He stated,
“As I have previously said, making predictions is difficult […] Part of my process as a professional money manager is forming a thesis (price target), identifying a timeline (date), and establishing a confidence level. And then constantly re-evaluating those three aspects of my thought process as I receive new information.”
Pomp however, listed six pointers that have to be understood beforehand. First, this prediction is not an investment advice, and people should do their own research before investing in the digital currency. The second is with respect to Bitcoin’s volatility, with Pomp remarking that since it was a highly volatile market, the coin could witness a significant fall before being valued at $100,000. He stated,
“I anticipate that there will be numerous 20-30% drawdowns from new all-time highs as the asset continues to appreciate in value. These mini-boom/bust cycles should not cause panic, but rather need to be understood as natural market dynamics whenever an asset gains significant value in short periods of time.”
Further, the partner of the investment firm stated that the rise would be driven by several catalysts. This includes institutional adoption, exchange-traded funds and retail product approvals, global instability, governments all across the globe manipulating currencies, markets and economy. He went on to state,
“The market cap of Bitcoin will reach $2+ trillion when Bitcoin is worth $100,000. This is less than 1/3 the market cap of gold and less than 1/40 the global money supply.”
