Lisk Foundation Releases Financial Update for September 2019
Our regular Financial Updates are published on the second Thursday of the following month. They will help you gain insight into the Lisk Foundation’s current financial health with a breakdown of total assets held, expenses and portfolio changes had during the previous month. The Lisk Foundation is registered in Zug, Switzerland — because of this, all financial reports are created in Swiss Francs (CHF).

In the month of September, we have liquidated the following cryptocurrencies into fiat currency through Bitcoin Suisse:
- 4.000,00 BCH
We liquidated them into:
- 1.159.162,17 CHF
Total Expenditures for the Month of September
In the expenditures section of the Financial Update, you can see how much the Foundation has spent on various aspects of Lisk’s growth. For your convenience, we have divided this section into four areas:
Development — by far the biggest area of expenditure by the Lisk Foundation, this encompasses everything spent on the research, development, and design of Lisk Core, SDK, Hub, Mobile and Explorer.
Marketing — this key area of growth for Lisk includes not only traditional marketing like public relations, or performance, but extends to everything spent on business development, event management, and creative design. It also includes our new Developer Relations department.
Bounties & Sponsorships — the stronger the Lisk community, the stronger our blockchain is going to be. Under this area of expenditure we outline all money spent on bug bounties, supporting proof-of-concept blockchain applications built with the Lisk SDK, or joint efforts with community members like the Lisk Center in Utrecht.
Operations — here, we mention all expenses needed in the day-to-day running of the Lisk Foundation, such as salaries, office costs, or administrative contractors dealing with accounting or legal compliance.
