#5. Buy Lisk (LSK) peer-to-peer with Cash

Peer to peer cryptocurrency trading is the most relaxing because you can always meet the trader in-person and can get your hands on the cash almost instantly.

But peer to peer trade is dangerous too because not all cryptocurrencies have proper P2P trading platforms like Bitcoin’s LocalBitcoins.

Similarly, trading Lisk peer to peer can be risky because the other trader can try and fool you in the absence of an escrow-like LocalBitcoins.

But if you are getting a deal in your community through some trusted sources then you might want to get involved but that too at your own risk.

Lastly, there are no Lisk ATMs available as of now, so the idea of buying Lisk from an ATM is just an empty dream.
