Your start into Lisk begins with your first account. It builds the foundation for every interaction with the Lisk blockchain and Lisk services. You have two options to make an account. You can use the Lisk web login or download one of many clients to your Windows, Mac, Linux or ARM device.

Right now you can only access the testnet though Lisk web login. Once distributed all LISK you will be able to enter the mainnet and download the clients.

Please note, if you lose access to your first passphrase you won’t be able to recover your money.

Later on there will be several different ways to get LISK. Users can discover bounties on the Lisk community forum which payout LISK. It’s also possible to participate in competitions and giveaways within the community. Otherwise, LISK will be available on various cryptocurrency exchanges when it distributes, it is already listed on IOU-markets.
