Waves was founded by Russian physicist Alexander Ivanov in 2016, following a successful token sale that raised 30,000 BTC in April and May of that year. The initiative was launched to address the shortcomings of existing blockchain platforms, which had prevented significant business adoption up to that point. Consequently, Waves focused on speed, scalability, security and user experience. The Waves network was launched in Q3 2016, with custom token functionality added towards the end of the year. Waves blockchain allows anyone to create digital assets quickly and easily, with no smart contract programming required. This off-the-peg token creation functionality, along with a built-in decentralised exchange (DEX), enables a powerful but low-cost crowdfunding solution. Users can launch, distribute and trade their own crypto tokens with just a few clicks, whether the purpose is to fund a new application, build out a loyalty rewards programme, or create an in-app currency. The open DEX allows tokens to be traded against any other Waves token, and official gateways run by Waves Platform offer the ability to buy and sell Waves tokens for other major digital and fiat currencies. In 2017, Waves started a collaboration with Microsoft Azure and became an official partner of Deloitte. The end of the year saw a major upgrade to both the front-end, with a comprehensive UI overhaul for the wallet, and the network, with the implementation of a new consensus protocol. Based on Cornell professor Emin Gün Sirer’s Bitcoin-NG proposal, Waves-NG enables dramatically higher throughput of up to 100 tx/second, making Waves one of the fastest open blockchains in existence. In 2018, the company released a multifunctional mobile application, which made most of the platform’s most popular features available for smartphone and tablet users. Waves team also began developing and testing a new implementation of smart contracts, which would provide much of the functionality of traditional smart contracts but without the drawbacks experienced by other platforms. These saw a phased launch at the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019. Alongside these technical achievements, a series of wider initiatives have seen the development of a fully-fledged blockchain ecosystem for Web 3.0, including: Waves Gaming Recognising that video gaming is one of the most important and immediate applications for blockchain tokenisation, Waves has launched an initiative to help and incentivise game developers to integrate Waves blockchain functionality into their software, including token and smart contract operations. A total of 1 million WAVES have been set aside to fund promising projects. Tokenomica Tokenomica is fully compliant Virtual Financial Asset (VFA) exchange based in Malta, that offers an established and clear legal structure for token issuance - enabling token projects to list and promote their initiatives with recognition by an independent industry body and under a known framework of operation. Waves Lab Waves Lab offers assistance to third parties to develop software and carry out research that will further the overall Waves ecosystem. The initiative identifies key areas and makes strategic grants for their execution, with a total fund value of 1 million WAVES.
Waves team is developing a blockchain ecosystem to form the backbone of Web 3.0 projects, based on Open Source principals. Waves Platform uses blockchain technology’s advantages - including immutability, transparency and auditability - to their fullest extent. The Waves-NG protocol facilitates high transaction throughput, making Waves one of the fastest open blockchains in existence. Based on the Bitcoin-NG proposal, it allows speeds of up to 100 tx/second. Waves’ Leased Proof of Stake (LPoS) consensus algorithm requires dramatically less computing power and electricity consumption than proof-of-work mining. The Fair LPoS algorithm provides a high level of decentralisation while maintaining robust security. Smart Contracts. Waves’ Turing-complete smart contracts (in development) feature low, fixed fees, no variable Gas requirements, and are dApp-friendly. Smart Accounts incorporate simple blockchain-enforced logic to enhance security (e.g. token freezing, multi-sig), without the complexity and risk entailed in conventional smart contracts. Smart Assets adopt the same approach as Smart Accounts, but apply additional logic to tokens rather than accounts - enabling use cases such as token white-listing, restricted trading, and so on. Integration tools: Waves’ Smart Contract builder, IDE and APIs make developing dApps straightforward. Built-in decentralised exchange (DEX), for fast and easy token trading. Easy token creation - new assets can be launched in under a minute, and with minimal cost. RIDE language - purpose-designed programming language for smart account and smart asset logic. Wide range of transaction types for a high degree of flexibility. Additionally, Waves has Waves Client (desktop), Waves Mobile apps and Waves Keeper (browser extension), providing several layers and means for users to access and interact with blockchain functionality.
