Waves Platform

The Waves platform is a comprehensive technological effort that encompasses token assets, decentralized trading, dApps, and private blockchain solutions. Founded by Sasha Ivanov in the beginning of 2016, the platform is multifunctional and has the main goal of producing custom coins on it. These coins are further developed and transferred in the exchange of custom tokens or other assets through the blockchain.

What it gives you.

The platform enables its users to launch a cryptocurrency of their own. Moreover, it also enables decentralized trading and crowdfunding, thanks to its integration with fiat currencies.

Other Features

Waves is an overall huge platform with many features. In short, here are the things that stand out about the project:

  • Speed: Waves is extremely fast, with 6000+ txs per minute. A token can be created in less than a minute.
  •  Affordability: You can pay transaction costs on Waves with tokens and each transaction costs about 0.001 WAVES, which is quite cheap.
  •  Accessibility: The UI of Waves is quite clean, intuitive and friendly. You can use a browser version, a stand-alone version or a mobile version of the Waves client. The best part is that you don’t have to download the Blockchain to use Waves.
  •  Fiat transfer: All tokens on Waves are fully backed by fiat deposits, Bitcoin gateways and various other token gateways. There are various licensed fiat gateways, e.g. USD and EUR.
  •  Perfect crowdfunding tool: Various startups use Waves to raise funds for their projects. These startups can create tokens, and distribute them on a safe and secure platform. Among the most notable crowd sales on the Waves Platform are MobileGo and PrimalBase.
  • Smart contracts: non-Turing complete smart contracts have been recently activated on the Waves TestNet are much easier to use than Ethereum’s smart contracts.


No doubt the biggest, most notable thing about WAVES is its decentralized exchange.The most obvious advantage of trading on the Waves Platform, as opposed to another exchange is the fact they are decentralized. This means your coins can’t be accessed (or stolen) from the people running the company. Additionally, the infrastructure itself makes hacking practically impossible. Still there are a few things you must know before trading at such a venue, like the lack of ability to restore your password. Waves informs you about them when creating an account. There is a fixed fee of 0.003 WAVES on all orders. With the current price of a single token being around 7.45, this is slightly more than 2 cents per trade. This will be very beneficial for bigger traders. However refrain from using your credit card on the site, as the markup on credit card transfers is quite high.

Platform Infrastructure Overview

The Waves Coins have a high network speed that allows hundreds of transactions per second. The commission, however, is very small making the transfer of cryptocurrency convenient between the network members.

Waves introduces new transaction types through plug-ins that are not included in the core software module, but are instead installed as an extension on top of it. Clients that do not have the relevant plug-in installed can still relay these custom transactions. This approach allows third-party developers to introduce new transaction types and creates an Appstore-like ecosystem.

Only the most basic transaction types are supported at the core level, including:

- Custom token creation, deletion, and transfer

- Decentralized token exchange, realized as a distributed order-matching engine, where Bid and Ask network transactions are matched against each other

- Anonymity features — anonymous order books are a must for an industry-grade trading platform

It should be noted that WAVES makes a crucial step ahead with decentralized blockchain trading by offering to trade off one custom token against another (asset-to-asset trading). This opens up a whole new range of opportunities, including trading against tokens tied to national currencies, thus replicating traditional trading infrastructures.

Waves has implemented credit card purchases for WAVES and bitcoin within its lite client via a partnership with Indacoin. The bitcoins purchased will be delivered directly to the user’s wallet as a WBTC token via the Waves bitcoin gateway, or instantly converted to WAVES if preferred. The service is best suited for buying small amounts of BTC and WAVES, in order to use the platform’s token creation and distribution facilities.

The wallet supports a range of fiat and cryptocurrencies, including USD, EURO, TRY, BTC, ETH, LTC, ZEC, BCH, BSV, DASH and XMR, all of which can be deposited, stored, traded and withdrawn. It can also be used on pretty much all conventional devices, being available on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOS and Android devices.

It also allows users to create their own token for the price of just 1 WAVES token.
