WAVES Open-blockchain financial platform. Blockchain for the people.



  • Cutting edge blockchain tech for real world

    Wavesplatform has been started with a desire to bring existing blockchain tech to real world business applications. Blockchains can offer surprisingly a lot to the world even at the initial stage of their development. After all the technology is just 7 years old. I won’t mention closed blockchains solutions, which are becoming quite mature now. We’re focused on open blockchain technology, and want it to be implemented by real world business now.

    Ability to create custom blockchains tokens and transact in them easily is the main emphasis of Wavesplatform. Any business should have an easy method to issue a custom token that can be used as an integral part of the business applications. Game currencies, crowdfunding, internal currencies, vouchers and loyalty reward programs — they all a gain a lot from using open blockchains. In effect network infrastructure and system audit is outsourced to an open blockchain. This is a new dimension for business.

    Blockchain tech is hard to scale, it has some innate disadvantages that should be worked on to make it really usable beyond testing environment. Since we’re focused on blockchain tokens we need to make the infrastructure for them usable, scalable and flexible. Several approaches are pursued here by us — authenticated data structures, Bitcoin NG-like scalability enhancements, decentralized blockchain trading enhanced by centralized matching. Besides we’re considering several ways to realize blockchain-based logic functionality, in a more secure and scalable way than in existing systems. This will put us on the map of business-oriented smart contracts platforms.

    Authenticated data structures are meant to solve the issues that emerge when you have many tokens and transactions on your blockchain. If a blockchain is used extensively it grows in size and the current balances ledger that the blockchain secures will be harder and harder to handle. Approach we pursue is based on the work of Leonid Reyzin, Dmitry Meshkov, Alexander Chepurnoy https://eprint.iacr.org/2016/994 . It is shown how to build effective Merkle tree — like data structures that beat all current best benchmarks. Scalability enhancements come from short crytpographic digest put on the blockchain, which allows network nodes not to store the state of the network tokens it does not want to track. Network nodes can store only the state of the tokens they have an interest in, for example the tokens they issued.

    Authenticated data structures approach will be pursued further, with the goal of creating efficient lite clients, effective state storage, and enhanced system throughput. Blockchain pruning and working directly with authenticated state is our long term goal.

    We want to create a high-load ready system. This is important from both practical and marketing point of view, network should be announced as ready for use in high load production systems.

    Our technical vision of this consists in using Bitcoin NG approach, that provides a clear throughput increase through a soft-fork. New type of blocks is introduced, and the miners compete for the right to generate a succession of blocks between two anchor, key blocks. It uses the network infrastructure more efficiently allowing to increase throughput to potentially 1k transactions per second.

    Blockchain tokens are essentially a new type of financial instruments, and, as such, there has to be a way to trade them efficiently and in a trustless way. Blockchain-based trading has an innate latency, centralized trading in crypto has serious security issues with all the crypto assets stored by exchanges in a centralized way. We try to have the best of the both worlds — Waves assets trading is done through centralized order matching but decentralized order settlement. You can have efficient and fast order execution without your money being stored by anybody but yourself. Users retain full control of their funds at all times, but can trade without significant latency anyway. This approach can be generalized beyond crypto, potentially traditional trading infrastructure could embrace it too.

    Our research and development effort is directed towards real world applications of crypto technology. We develop the cutting edge tech to be usable NOW. Open blockchains is the future of humanity, and it’s high time to start using them in real life beyond simple money transfer applications.

  • WAVES Weekly No. 29

    Blockchain Developers Meetup & Blockchain Weekend

    Another meet-up for developers will be held in Moscow on 9 February. The main topic of the event with be the Hyperledger project, and the opportunities it brings for developers and crypto businesses as a whole. The main guests for the event will be the National Settlement Depository and IBM Research and Development Center.

    On 18-19 February a Blockchain Weekend event will be held. Sasha Ivanov will explain what blockchain technology is, how and why it will change every industry without exception, and how to implement it properly. Participants will be able to learn about smart contracts and successful use cases, including how large companies are already implementing blockchain technology today.

    Waves Platform fully supports both events.

    Update from Tolsi, Waves Core Node Developer

    A part of our team is working now on improving the architecture of our code for us to be easier to develop and maintain the node source code. We have recently combined the entire source code of our node in a single repository, also we test DEX with our respected community and we are actively developing leasing feature(LPOS). This will give an opportunity to lease your mining power to another user while having your balance on your side. Stay tuned, love Waves!

    Tidex Update

    Last week, WAVES was integrated on Tidex and this week should see the first Waves assets being listed. Tidex is still in beta, and bounties are still available for anyone who can help improve the UX, and especially the API. Security bugs will earn 1,000 WAVES or more, depending on severity. To find out more, join the #tidex Slack channel. The exchange is powered by iCoinSoft team.

    To clarify the position between Tidex and Waves, the exchange is being developed and maintained by a team of Russian and Ukrainian coders. However, it will be registered in the UK, and has the full confidence, backing and endorsement of the Waves team. Sasha will effectively be the exchange’s public face.

    Liquidity is critical for most altcoins and tokens, and trading fees stifle this – even when they are as low as 0.2%. Tidex wants to become a lynchpin of the new crypto economy, and will therefore offer zero trading fees at start. The exchange’s revenues will instead come from subscriptions for coin listings, as well as a variety of other sources. Tidex and the Waves team will run market-making bots on the exchange to guarantee liquidity. Furthermore, Tidex will act as a ‘Matcher’ node for Waves’decentralised exchange (DEX), enabling real-time trades on the Waves blockchain.

    More Exchanges

    Two further exchanges have added WAVES in the last week: Liqui and Cryptopia. We are in contact with a number of other exchanges. Once an exchange has integrated WAVES, it is a relatively straightforward matter to list Waves assets, too. (Incent has already been added to Cryptopia, for example.)

    Bitcoin Gateway

    The bitcoin gateway is almost ready and will be deployed as soon as possible. This will make it possible to deposit and withdraw BTC as tokens on the Waves blockchain, from the Lite client. When DEX is live, these can be traded against any other tokens. The BTC gateway will also mean that the Byteball windfall of 35 BTC can be distributed toWaves Community Token holders. Regardless of whether the gateway is ready or not, the plan is to distribute those BTC tokens this week.

    Further News and Information

    · Two major ICO pre-ANNs are expected in the coming week.
    · The Waves challenge is still running – win 1,000 WAVES!
    · The next distribution of WCT will occur on 16 February. Only WAVES held in a local wallet are eligible.
    · Be aware of fake assets: always check the token id before trading.

    Waves Nodes and Lite Client Reminders

    If you would like to run a full node, please download the latest releases athttps://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/. Anyone can run a node, but you will need at least 10,000 WAVES to generate blocks. You can read the installation guide here.

    For regular users the Lite client can be downloaded fromhttps://wavesplatform.comDo not download the client from other sources for security reasons. (Please be aware that there have been issues with fake github repositories, as well as fake Twitter accounts and Slack identities.) Alternatively, the standalone Chrome app will automatically update as new versions are released.

  • WAVES & WCT IS AVAILABLE FOR TRADING ON TIDEX EXCHANGE!
    WAVES trading - https://tidex.com/#/exchange/W... 
    WCT trading - https://tidex.com/#/exchange/W... 
    FOr more Details About Tidex:http://cryptocentral.info/topi...
    Tidex is a new exchange that will be based in the UK and officially endorsed by the Waves Platform. It will trade WAVES, Waves tokens and other popular cryptocurrencies including LTC, ETH, DOGE, DASH and BTS. It will be launching with zero-fee model for traders and liquidity guaranteed. At the current point in the development and adoption of cryptocurrency, both liquidity and decentralisation of trading infrastructure are critical. Altcoin trading is typically concentrated on one or two major exchanges, risking loss or theft of funds. Exchanges are the gatekeepers to the cryptocurrency world, a situation which can only be addressed by increasing their number. However smaller exchanges, whilst welcome additions to the cryptocurrency ecosystem as a whole, generally struggle through lack of liquidity – particularly when they first start out. Tidex, a new exchange that will be registered in London, aims to contribute to the solution to this persistent problem. The site has recently launched in beta and is undergoing testing by the community, with bounties available for replicable bugs. Tidex is powered by iCoinSoft team. Given the nature of the emerging blockchain and fintech sector, it is important that Tidex should pioneer best practice in terms of security and administration, and show the way for other cryptocurrency businesses. The exchange is fully vouched for by Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov. In due course Tidex plans to integrate Waves’ Matcher on the backend, and will act as a node for the decentralized exchange to enable real-time trades on the Waves blockchain. Meanwhile, the priority is to build liquid markets for key altcoins and crypto-tokens. This will be achieved both through zero-fee trading at start, and by deploying market-making bots on the exchange. Tidex will be funded by monthly listing fees for coins, amongst other means.


  • ICOnomy 1. Artical By sasha ivanov

    Bitcoin shows how to create your value tokens without any centralized authority or regulating body. As a matter of fact native bitcoin token is application-agnostic, and its usage in the form of money is a result of a social consensus. This is the most obvious choice, but not the only one. Blockchain token is just an entry in a decentralized database, which has some intrinsic maintenance costs. Thus it is only natural that there’s a certain value attached to these tokens. But it can be basically anything — it can be money, loyalty points, voting rights, equity…. Actually any kind of financial instrument can be implemented as a blockchain token.

    This is quite ground-breaking. Never before in the history of mankind was it possible to create your “money” more or less out of thin air. Of course private currencies, coupons, depositary notes existed but you couldn’t simply issue your currency or a value token in a couple clicks, the way you can do it now. You had to rely on some government approval, some private infrastructure which could reject you. Installing a blockchain wallet and issuing your token without any hassle is such a stark contrast to it. Blockchains are decentralized and don’t depend on one party; you basically issue your tokens into a cloud, they can be gone if the whole cloud is gone, which is hard to do due to their decentralized nature.

    Of course it brings a whole new dimension into economic systems. People are just starting to figure out how those tokens can be used, both from technical and legal perspective. The model which naturally emerged was ICO, Initial Coin Offering model. Coin developers sold the tokens in their blockchain systems to investors, and used the proceeds to fund the system development. Investors bought the tokens hoping that their value would grow if the system was successful. On top of decentralized blockchains emerged centralized marketplaces where the tokens could be traded, thus investors had an access to quite a liquid market, and could exit their investment at any time.

    Historically that was the first model to appear; it brought forth a lot of other ideas and approaches, going beyond crypto. Let’s consider what you can do with blockchain tokens, starting from classical ICO’s. It will be a rather non-technical and high-level description of the tokens economy, the things you can do with them and some kind of a best practices guide. Before considering more derivative approaches let’s give a brief description of traditional ICO’s, that have become a rather established market by now.

    Crytpocurrency start-ups raise funds at ICO’s. This is a reality one has deal with; it won’t go away. Current volume of ICO markets can be estimated at around 200 mil USD yearly, and growing.

    Why did this approach become so successful, at least in the cryptocurrency ecosystem? The reply would be this is a very natural approach for cryptocurrency start-ups, on top of that it might be not exactly 100% compliant with current laws and regulations but it does not break them in any obvious way. That allowed crypto startups to stay under the regulator’s’ radar and actually develop their products.

    Basic ICO model is simple. A certain portion of a cryptocurrency tokens is issued before the full system launch and is sold to investors. The coin begins trading at exchanges, investors can exit their investments and possibly make money. Developers use the raised funds to cover development and marketing costs.

    In a way this model resembles classic IPO model, equity in a company is sold to investors, proceeds are used to develop the business. IPO’s are heavily regulated in all major jurisdictions, and many people wonder what about ICO’s, are they security offerings? Do they fall under Howey test? (a test that determines whether a given offering constitute a security offering). Can you go to jail if you do an ICO?

    Reality proves that regulators are rather unwilling to delve into intricacies of cryptocurrency crowdsales. It might be due to the fact that the market is still rather small, but also, in my opinion, they don’t have a case here. Why?

    That magical entity sold at ICO, token, is much closer to a digital product in its nature than to a classical security. There are no laws stipulating its usage other than network protocol; there is no board of directors or company bylaws; actually there’s no company at all! It’s just a network of nodes that run the blockchain software, and support a distributed database. In order to use it one needs the native blockchain token, though its usage nodes are rewarded for their efforts in maintaining network.

    You can’t really call it a security; at least it’s not a type of security we’re accustomed to. It’s value stems not from some kind of social contract fixed in legal codes, but from actual code on which it runs, from the functionality it provides, from the hashes put into securing the network. It’s value is in a way objective, not subjective or “fiat”. It’s like digital gold, something that has intrinsic value. It’ just does not belong to the world of securities as we know them. Regulators feel this and are not so eager to clamp down on it, since they probably see value in it too.

    But the usage of those tokens can be very multi-faceted. After all it’s just an entry in a distributed database. It obviously has some intrinsic value, but the its actual usage has to be determined externally. It can be made compliant, but it can obviously break the law too. It would be very important to outline some framework in which blockchain tokens could exist and be integrated in current economic and legal reality, modifying, rather than defying it.

    In the next posts I’ll outline several compliant schemes which emerged in cryptocurrency community and can be expanded into real world. We’ll describe service and product tokens, and touch upon the approaches connecting real world securities to blockchain tokens. Stay tuned :)



  • ICOnomy 0: How to run an ICO 

    I decided to digress a little from my initial plan to write about how ICO-style approaches can be used in “real” economy and provide a brief how-to, best practices guide about the current state of affairs and how one should go about running an ICO campaign for her project now. We get way too many questions about it, so I’d like to create a post I can direct people to.

    In the current rather undefined legal status of ICO’s it’s quite ricky to advice on how to do ICO’s. So the focus here will be also on how to make it compliant and not break any laws.

    So let’s start with a question who could (should) make an ICO now? The general reply would be — you need to use blockchain tokens in your product, not promise to pay any dividend, and don’t try to sell equity in your company. The ideal setup is you use the token sold at ICO as an integral part of your system or application. The most obvious thing here is you use a new cryptocurrency and sell its native, main token at ICO or you use an existing platform such as Waves or Ethereum and create a token on top of it, integrating it in your product.

    What that product could be? Probably I’ve seen start-ups that tried to disrupt using blockchain tech almost every business area imaginable. People see a new way to raise funds and try to apply it to their case at hand. Currently you can’t really raise money for any kind of product using ICO approach. Try to think how you can use blockchain tokens in your product, and if it makes sense to offer them at ICO.

    The short check-list would be:

    • Why do I need blockchain tokens? Does my product need blockchain? What benefits does blockchain tech bring to my product?
    • How can I connect blockchain token to the product functionally? Can I integrate it my app?
    • How can my token be interesting to investors? Is there a mechanism that connects its value to the success of my product?
    • Would my offer be compliant with current regulation? Don’t forget that you can’t sell equity at ICO, that would make it IPO. You can’t guarantee any profits, it would make it a security and you need to go SEC’s of the world for this.

    What kind of projects can follow this path?

    • Cryptocurrencies. Part of the the total issue is sold to investors at crowdsale. The token is a part of the system, this is the value token that empowers the consensus algorithm, you can’t have an open blockchain without native network tokens, at least it’s much more easier to have them rather than not.
    • Any kind of product that uses internal currencies. It can be social networks ( certain services are being sold using internal currency), games (game currency) and so on
    • Kickstarter-like products when you sell a voucher on blockchain for a future product, and you have its prototype and need to start the manufacturing. In this case you have a kickstarter combined with open blockchain market, where your investors can trade your product tokens.

    And, once again, don’t try to sell a share in your company or make any projections about profits. Tokens can have some voting rights, though. Read up on Howey test, that could be helpful to stake out the area ICO’s can exist in now.

    When you’re decided about the product and your team you have to deal with technicalities.

    • Decide on which platform you tokens are going to exist, or maybe you want to create your own blockchain. Waves and Ethereum are good options :)
    • Decide on the amount you want to raise, the amount of tokens to be sold, the amount of tokens retained by the founders. The general advice would be here not to keep more than 30% of the total issue. When your token, hopefully, trades at an exchange people would fear that you dump your tokens on them (it’s an unregulated market as of now, what can you do)
    • Decide on the ICO lengths, discounts for early investors. Don’t make it too long, 1 month is more than enough. If you need to raise a specific amount of money you can do it much faster, ICO ends when you reach your goal. Some projects did it in 15 minutes.
    • Announce your project, Bitcointalk announcement is probably a must. You’ll get lots of feedback, not all of it will be positive, but it’ll help you tweak your project.
    • If the general feedback is positive set the start date, do some marketing (SMM is the best thing here, Twitter, Reddit, Facebook with cryptocurrency targeting), set up an ICO site. You can create your own one, you can use ICO platforms such as ICOtech.me
    • Stay positive, you work with people and for people. Meet the community demands, try to factor in all the suggestions from the community. Never lose your cool, if you don’t like communicating to people ICO’s are not for you. You have to have a marketing team and community managers to work efficiently.
    • When your ICO’s over distribute the token. You can’t really do it before it’s over, since open market trading could interfere with your ICO price, especially if you have some early birds discount
    • Use the raised BTC to make an amazing product and make the world a better place (yes!)

    And I’ll reiterate the most crucial points — you have to make sure that your product really needs blockchain tech, that you are ready to work with community and can offer a valuable product to people, and that you’re not breaking any laws. If the answer is positive let the spirit of Satoshi help you, ICO’s might be a new way for business to operate, and you might be one of the first revolutionaries.

  • WAVES Weekly No. 30

    This week we have several updates about Waves assets and trading.

    Waves token distributions

    Last week, WBTC tokens were distributed to all holders of the Waves Community Token (WCT). WBTC is a bitcoin proxy asset. Each WBTC represents one bitcoin, and reserves are fully backed with BTC.

    Initially, WBTC will have appeared as a Waves asset under the portfolio tab in your client. With the update to v0.4.8, it will be displayed on the ‘home’ page of the client under BITCOIN balances. As the official Waves bitcoin token, it will soon be possible to withdraw WBTC to a bitcoin address via our bitcoin gateway. This will be activated asap. Mass pay feature will be also added to the client, making it possible to distribute tokens to a large number of accounts (as required for dividend payments or ICO distributions). If you are running the standalone Chrome client, there may be a delay before it updates to v0.4.8.

    Over the coming weeks, several Nxt assets will be moving over to Waves. This will allow them to be properly maintained and developed. More details will be given on these as they happen.

    Tidex

    A number of token pairs have been added to Tidex. WBTC can be deposited, and there is a BTC buy wall to allow holders to cash out to bitcoin if they wish. This ‘pseudo gateway’ is a temporary alternative to the official in-client gateway that will be coming soon.

    WCT has been added and is trading against both BTC and WAVES. A number of other WAVES markets have been included. Incent is also now trading on Tidex against BTC.

    Tidex is still in beta, and bounties are still available for anyone who can help improve the UX, and especially the API. Security bugs will earn 1,000 WAVES or more, depending on severity. To find out more, join the #tidex Slack channel. The exchange is powered by iCoinSoft team.

    To find out more about Tidex’s ownership and approach, see last week’s update.

    WCT Distribution

    The next distribution of the Waves Community Token will occur this week, after the snapshot ends on 15 February. 10% of the WCT asset will be distributed to community members who keep their WAVES in a local wallet — not on an exchange.

    Ripto Bux and Tipbot

    A new tipbot is running on the Waves Slack. (A separate version is also available on the Incent Slack). This is a joint project between Ripto and Myco with the intention of increasing community engagement and transaction fees on the Waves network.

    The tipbot allows users to send WAVES or any Waves asset to other Slack users. We recommend that you only keep relatively small amounts on your tipbot account; it is a straightforward matter to deposit and withdraw tokens to a local client. The project’s official/default tipping asset is Ripto Bux (RBX).

    To find out more, visit the #tipping channel on Slack. Accounts have automatically been created for all Slack users, but will need funding — or ask for a tip to get started. Please do not tip in #general to leave this channel free for other updates.

    Waves Nodes and Lite Client Reminders

    If you would like to run a full node, please download the latest releases athttps://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/. Anyone can run a node, but you will need at least 10,000 WAVES to generate blocks. You can read the installation guide here.

    For regular users the Lite client can be downloaded fromhttps://wavesplatform.com. Do not download the client from other sources for security reasons. (Please be aware that there have been issues with fake github repositories, as well as fake Twitter accounts and Slack identities.) Alternatively, the standalone Chrome app will automatically update as new versions are released.

    How Not Knowing Waves…(Interview)



  • WAVES Weekly No. 31

    Last week has seen a number of updates that show how the different elements in the Waves ecosystem will fit together and some of the benefits this will bring.

    Waves Community Token and WBTC

    The next tranche of WCT was distributed on the basis of WAVES balances, averaged over the daily snapshots from the previous month. A total of 1 million WCT tokens were sent to holders in February. There is still 70% of WCT supply to be distributed over the next 7 months.

    Shortly afterwards, another round of Waves bitcoin tokens (WBTC) were sent to WCT holders. These now appear under the homepage of the client, in the Bitcoin tab, and will shortly be withdrawable to a bitcoin address using the built-in Waves <> Bitcoin gateway. In the meantime, holders can send them to Tidex, where they can be exchanged 1:1 for BTC. A number of Waves tokens have recently been added to Tidex, as well as new WAVES pairs for existing currencies that already trade against BTC.

    Tech Updates

    The Waves mobile app, BTC gateway and decentralized exchange, aka Matcher, are currently in heavy testing and being prepared for their initial releases.

    Additionally, we expect to see LPoS (leased proof-of-stake) released on mainnet in March. The first code was merged into the master branch of the git repository today. This will allow all WAVES holders to lease their mining power to full nodes and receive rewards from transaction fees.

    Crowdfunding News

    Some major news comes in the form of GameCredits’ recent announcement. GameCredits is launching a mobile game store. This will be powered by the GameCredits (GAME) currency, enabling gamers to avoid the frictions that currently impact the transfer of money into, between and out of in-game economies. Several hundred game developers have already signed up to use this.

    The MobileGo crowdsale will fund marketing for this platform. A proportion of revenues will be used to buy back tokens, whilst all of the activity on MobileGo will also feed through into the GAME economy.

    There are several ways in which this will benefit Waves. MobileGo will exist as a token on both the Waves and Ethereum blockchains. Tokens bought with BTC, WAVES and GAME will be hosted on Waves, whilst those bought with ETH will be hosted on Ethereum. As with any CAT, this will immediately bring transaction volumes to Waves. Secondly, the ICO deposit tech created by Incent will be used for the crowdfund, with Incent being distributed as rewards to MobileGo investors – again increasing transaction volumes on Waves, as well as directly benefiting Incent holders through increased market demand.

    Lastly, MobileGo will be the first ICO to use a new piece of ‘blockswap’ technology that allows tokens to exist simultaneously on both the Ethereum and Waves blockchains, and to travel between them trustlessly. This raises many new possibilities for dual-blockchain projects, enabling developers to use the unique functionality of both in the same project. It is encouraging to see synergies being built between Waves, Ethereum and GameCredits in this way.

    In other crowdfunding news, ChronoBank’s ICO has ended. The project raised the equivalent of $5.4 million, including 385,963 WAVES. Labour Hour tokens will be issued on the Waves blockchain, amongst others, and a ChronoWaves wallet is in development.

    Waves Nodes, Lite Client and Faucet

    If you would like to run a full node, please download the latest mainnet release at https://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/. Anyone can run a node, but you will need at least 10,000 WAVES to generate blocks. You can read the installation guide here.

    For regular users the Lite client can be downloaded from https://wavesplatform.comDo not download the client from other sources for security reasons. (Please be aware that there have been issues with fake github repositories, as well as fake Twitter accounts and Slack identities.) Alternatively, the standalone Chrome app will automatically update as new versions are released.

    Waves faucet, funded and developed by the community member Sphearis, can be found here http://www.wavesdrop.com/.

  • Waves Release Testnet v0.6.0

    WARNING Testnet is restarted again. This time from the block 4908. Please, drop existing blockchain files.

    • The DEX's Order Match transaction has been changed. This is the main reason for restarting Testnet. Now, a second asset of transaction's pair is used to set an amount of the transaction.
    • LPOS was implemented. New Leasing and Leasing Cancel transactions were added.
    • New, HOCON based, configuration file. Old configuration file (JSON based) is supported in this release for backward compatibility. Automatic configuration file conversion added to DEB packages.

    Download:



  • WAVES Weekly No. 32

    A series of new features and functionality are currently in development on Waves testnet and in the wider Waves ecosystem. These include:

    The crypto gateway, including Bitcoin, which will allow users to deposit bitcoins along with different cryptocurrencies and automatically issue them with the WBTC and other corresponding tokens — a 100% crypto-backed tokens on the Waves blockchain.

    First Matcher(DEX) backend is being polished and work is progressing on the frontend.

    The Waves android app is at an advanced stage of development.

    Further information, updated tutorials and press releases will be provided for each of these when they are released.

    You can find more updates about existing and future plans in the latest Q&A:

    Token creation

    We will shortly be producing tutorials and further promotional materials for how to create and use Waves CATs. In brief:

    • Under the Tokens Creation tab in the client, fill out the Name and Description for your token. You will not be able to change these details as they will be permanently recorded in the blockchain.
    • Enter the total number of tokens you want to create, and the number of decimal places you want to use.
    • Your token can be Re-issuable, which means that you can create more in the future if you wish. If you do not check this box — or if you initially make your token re-issuable but later create more tokens and uncheck this box — then you will not be able to make them re-issuable again.
    • Ensure that you have sufficient WAVES to pay the creation fee, and click Submit. Upon Confirm, your token will be created.

    The Waves client also includes tools that enable you to send tokens to a large number of accounts at the same time.

    Waves projects

    The MobileGo ICO will fund the marketing of GameCredits’ mobile app store, which will use the GameCredits(GAME) currency to enable developers and gamers to overcome the frictions inherent in transferring money into, between and out of in-game economies. The ICO is expected to launch mid-April. MobileGo will also employ new blockswap technology that will allow a token to exist on both Waves and Ethereum’s blockchains, traveling freely between them as required.

    Bankcoin aims to become a blockchain currency within universities in Mexico. The organisation has already secured a number of agreements with partners. Bankcoin’s exchange will launch shortly, with debit cards planned for roll-out in April.

    Loyalty scheme Incent is on-track to integrate Merchant #1 at the beginning of April. Incent tokens will be issued to customers by merchants at point-of-sale, with these orders settled in near-realtime on exchanges including Tidex. One of the chief concerns at this point is to build sufficient market depth and liquidity to support merchant demand without undue slippage. The plan is to deploy a market-making tradebots on Tidex in advance of the commercial rollout.

    A series of other projects are lining up ICOs and token launch on the Waves platform, and will announce their plans in due course.

    Waves Nodes, Lite Client and Faucet

    If you would like to run a full node, please download the latest mainnet release athttps://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/. Anyone can run a node, but you will need at least 10,000 WAVES to generate blocks. You can read the installation guide here.

    For regular users the Lite client can be downloaded fromhttps://wavesplatform.com. Do not download the client from other sources for security reasons. (Please be aware that there have been issues with fake github repositories, as well as fake Twitter accounts and Slack identities.) Alternatively, the standalone Chrome app will automatically update as new versions are released.

    Waves faucet, funded and developed by the community member Sphearis, can be found herehttp://www.wavesdrop.com/.

    How Not Knowing Waves…(Interview)



  • Waves mobile app on testnet

    The Waves mobile app has been released on testnet. Download it to see what we’re working on and to try it out!

    We’ve now released v1 of the Waves mobile app on testnet. Downloading it and getting started is very straightforward, so please check it out and let us know your thoughts!

    The app is currently Android only, though we’re exploring creating a version for iOS, too. The chief difficulty here is ensuring it will be available to users, due to Apple’s policy of screening the apps it makes available.

    Download the app for Android by clicking the link:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/70697078/android-20170228.apk

    You’ll be prompted to install the app, due to the download coming from an untrusted source. You may need to change the settings on your device to enable this.

    Once you’ve downloaded and installed it, open the app. The UX should immediately be familiar. You’ll be prompted to create a new wallet, or to import an existing one. You should notuse an existing wallet — create a new SEED and address for the purposes of testing. It is always good practice to record your SEED, though since this is testnet, you will not lose tokens of value if you lose it in this instance.

    You’ll be asked to enter and confirm a password, just like in the lite client. Next time you log in, you can choose between creating/importing a new account, and opening an existing one using this password.

    You’ll immediately recognise the UX from the Chrome lite client

    You’ll need some testWAVES to play with the app, which you can get fromtestnet.wavesexplorer.com/faucet.

    If you find a bug, or have feedback about the UX or any features you’d like to see included, drop us a line on Slack. As soon as we have a stable version we’ll be releasing it for mainnet, and adding further functionality and new features as they become available.

  • Tokens Flexibility

    “4”: { “Waves”: 100000, “4764Pr9DpKQAHAjAVA2uqnrYidLMnM7vpDDLCDWujFTt”: 1 ,”8LQW8f7P5d5PZM7GtZEBgaqRPGSzS3DfPuiXrURJ4AJS”:10000,”3PPKF2pH4KMYgsDixjrhnWrPycVHr1Ye37V”:1 },

    What are these weird characters? they are just a snippet from waves node config which allows you to mine tokens issued on waves blockchain. This is a great thing that no other chain has, miners can choose in what currency to mine (snippet above has fees in Bitcoin, for example).

    It opens up a range of possibilities — for example you can build closed ecosystems on Waves platform, where you deal only with your token, and it’s not even obvious that it’s based on Waves chain. If your token is valuable miners will be willing to mine it and you can transact only in your token, without a native token.

    Cool feature, isn’t it? :) Waves is going to have a bunch of those.

  • 8 Things Businesses Need to Know About Blockchain for Remittance

    When it comes to remittance, also known as the process of sending a certain amount of money as payment, technology has been working to change the process into something that is easier, cheaper, and faster than it ever has been thanks to electronic processes now available.

    More than ever, it’s has become important to find a solution for global remittance as more companies and individuals want to more money between countries.

    Enter blockchain. Blockchain is an important technology set to completely improve the remittance system and potentially replace what has been a cumbersome bank settlement system.

    The old system with the banks has been bogged down, especially because they insist on too many steps and they are laden with costs that are designed to prevent fraud. Blockchain’s public ledger is creating a new payment network that can help businesses.

    Here’s what you need to know about blockchain for remittance, also now being labeled as “rebittance” services:

    1. No high transfer costs: Blockchain is set to lower the transfer costs of global remittance, including bank and fraud prevention fees. Add exchange rates and the fees to do currency exchange on both ends of the remittance and a traditional remittance transaction can quickly get expensive. However, none of these fees come into effect when using a blockchain remittance process.
    2. Simplified experience: Blockchain offers a straightforward remittance process thanks to the removal of multiple steps in the payment process. Since there are fewer people and processes involved, there is nothing complex about blockchain remittance. It follows a basic and proven transaction formula that has worked for other type of payment processing already as well as for non-financial transactions.
    3. Speed: With blockchain the transfer of money, is nearly instantaneous. This means that there will be no more five to seven business day averages with remittance. Blockchain provides the ability to move money at this rate, and can then speed up productivity in terms of what businesses and individuals can accomplish with that extra time. Plus, that level of speed can be a game changer when it comes to cash flow, helping businesses of all sizes and individuals to have greater control over their money and expenses.
    4. No middleman: While traditional remittance measures require a third-party that handles the authorization and release of the payment, blockchain removes this middleman. This decentralized structure to the entire process is one of the primary reasons the remittance process goes faster and costs less.
    5. Security measures: Blockchain offers an anti-fraud feature that makes it more difficult for hackers to break into transactions as well as features that prevent any access to payment data. Any security issues have been found to primarily relate to user error and have the ability to be fixed. Easily. Other security measures have been related primarily to the overall development and maturity of blockchain and how it can be used.
    6. Privacy and anonymity: While the ability to protect privacy and provide anonymity is a benefit to many businesses and organizations, there is concern with regulators and governments related to concerns over terrorists and criminals using it to move their money around the world. This is an ongoing issue that countries and regulators are exploring to see if there is a solution that will maintain privacy while not enabling criminals to take advantage of blockchain remittance.
    7. Still in its infancy: Blockchain for remittance is still in its trial stages in many countries so there is a ways to go before it becomes a common household word and a way to transfer money on a global basis. Many organizations are still reluctant because they are not sure if the world will agree to eventually forego traditional currency and cash for the digital currency that is used for blockchain-based remittance. Because this is a new way of looking at payments and money, more creative thinking and perspective are important by those within the financial industry as well as with businesses that will eventually adopt this type of remittance process. Despite the ongoing development, acceptance is growing as more blockchain companies emerge to illustrate how it can be used.
    8. Best served in underdeveloped markets: Blockchain is viewed as opening the door to working with underdeveloped markets, particularly those in Africa as well as in countries throughout Asia. With no real legacy infrastructure in place, it’s been difficult for businesses in these countries to join the global business environment, let alone conduct transactions in their own countries. The World Bank noted that India had $69 billion in remittances in 2015 while China had $64 billion, the Philippines had $28 billion, Mexico had $25 billion, and Nigeria had $21 billion. As the World Bank noted, “Remittances are an important and fairly stable source of income for millions of families and of foreign exchange to many developing However, if remittances continue to slow, and dramatically as in the case of Central Asian countries, poor families in many parts of the world would face serious challenges including nutrition, access to health care and education.” Blockchain provides the ability for cross border remittance products, which are in considerable demand as noted in the aforementioned statistics, and could significantly grow this market opportunity.

    There’s so much happening in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, making it an exciting time to be operating within a realm that requires any type of transaction. There will continue to be evolution with blockchain across all types of applications, including remittance, which will help businesses and individuals access more options related to sending and receiving money anywhere in the world.

  • First blockchain social platform launched, based on Waves

    March 6, 2017, Moscow — Waves and Partiya Rosta (‘The Growth Party’) have launched a new ‘People of growth’ platform based on the Waves blockchain. In the initial phase, the financial side of the project has been implemented. 10 million Upcoins were created. The internal cryptocurrency allows for payments within the platform and loyalty program to be made. The Waves-powered infrastructure provides support for crowdfunding as well as integration of internal rating and voting systems based on the blockchain.

    March 6, 2017, Moscow — Waves and Partiya Rosta (‘The Growth Party’) have launched a new platform, ‘People of growth’, based on Waves. This is the very first example of a blockchain being leveraged to power a social project, in Russia or elsewhere. As a nascent technology, blockchain has been suggested as an answer to many social and economic issues — but until now, it has often been dismissed by leaders as a solution without a problem.

    ‘It’s a privilege to be a part of this new movement,’ comments Sasha Ivanov, CEO of Waves Platform. ‘For those who have been working in this space for years, aiming to increase blockchain adoption, it’s vindication of our efforts. It’s also great to see Waves, the platform we created for mass blockchain adoption, being used for exactly the purpose intended.’

    In the first stage, the financial basis of the project has been implemented and 10 million Upcoins created. Each member of the ‘People of growth’ network community receives a virtual wallet after registering on the portalhttp://ludirosta.ru/. For now, transactions are processed in Upcoins, but wallet functionality will be extended in the future to support other cryptocurrencies. The internal cryptocurrency — Upcoin — is employed for payments between users of the system. Upcoins can be transferred and used for payments and network projects within the platform. The loyalty program is also based on Upcoin. Network participants receive bonuses for their participation in community events, and these earnings can be used for discounts on partner educational programs, yoga classes, and many other services. Community members are also entitled to a credit in Upcoins.

    ‘Development and implementation of a token based on the blockchain is much cheaper than regular loyalty programs. In addition, blockchain technology provides advantages such as full transparency within the system, smooth operation and immutability of transactions,’ comments Sasha Ivanov, CEO of Waves Platform.

    The internal crowdfunding program for business projects within the party is planned to be launched using bitcoin as well as Upcoin on the “People of growth” platform. Additionally, the infrastructure of Waves will allow the integration of a ratings system within the platform. Members can build their ratings status within the community network through this system. Furthermore, it is planned that all internal votes will be processed on the blockchain. The voting process becomes completely transparent and the results can be seen in real time with this technology. This could allow the voting choice of the whole country to be determined within an hour. Using blockchain technology in voting systems opens new opportunities for businesses and social projects, as well as at the state level in the framework of the electoral process.

    About Waves

    Waves Platformhttps://wavesplatform.com/ is a decentralized platform for crowdfunding and creation of digital tokens. It is the biggest blockchain project with Russian roots. The Waves cryptocurrency platform focuses chiefly on the creation/distribution, trading and exchange of assets/tokens on the blockchain. One of the main features of the project is a focus on ease of use and mass adoption. Four components of the Waves platform are open sourced: cryptocurrency, blockchain, decentralized mechanism of confirmation based on consensus and community miners serving network. As a consensus algorithm, Proof-of-Stake is used. In June 2016 Waves successfully finished its ICO (Initial Coin Offering — public sale of coins), collecting more than $16M (30,000 BTC). It was listed in the TOP 3 of the most successful blockchain projects.




  • Token mining and Waves fees

    Artificially limiting flexibility is counterproductive


    If fees can be paid in tokens, is there still an incentive to hold WAVES? TL;DR yes, because 1) it brings many more users and 2) there’s demand from node operators, who will do whatever they want with their earnings anyway, regardless of currency.

    Waves recently announced a new feature: the ability to pay transaction fees in tokens hosted on the Waves network, rather than in the native WAVES token itself. (In fact, this feature had been included on mainnet at the end of last year, but is only now being publicised and used.)

    Staking nodes will be able to choose which transactions they process, based on the currency of the fee. For example, any node will want to accept a transaction that has a WAVES fee, but if a node operator deems an asset worthless or a scam token, they will probably want to blacklist it.

    There has been some confusion about this. If transaction fees can be paid in tokens, such as Incent, WCT, Ripto Bux, and so on, what is the value of holding WAVES?

    Flexibility is attractive

    Firstly, the ability to pay fees in a specific token is highly attractive to businesses. Earlier platforms such as CounterParty and Nxt required that every token transfer entailed a fee in the native currency (BTC and NXT respectively). This introduced additional frictions. If you are a developer, creating a wallet for a particular token, you have to factor in acquiring that currency somehow and ensuring that the user always has enough to be able to make transactions. Any workaround is going to be suboptimal at best, and often downright clunky.

    In the two years of discussions that led up to the launch of Incent, this was a significant factor in the decision to use Waves platform as an infrastructure partner. No existing platform offered the functionality that enabled the use of one currency alone, until Waves launched. It was decided that the frictions involved in distributing a secondary currency to pay for token transactions were too great. Subsequent blockchain platforms have recognised this and addressed it through features like sidechains or child chains (Ardor, Stratis and others). Thus the appeal to businesses of this token mining feature should not be underestimated.

    Restricting users in their choices of what tokens to use for fees is counterproductive. There is a certain perverse logic at work in the decision to force network users to pay fees in a separate (native) token. If you require people to hold and use the native token, you will place demand on it, driving price upwards, goes the thinking.

    But this is only true up to a point. What actually happens is that you alienate users when the frictions and therefore the costs of using the platform become too great. In the emerging marketplace of blockchain ideas and tech, there’s no place for a platform that imposes such arbitrary demands on its users. Experience has already shown that these platforms will be replaced by others better suited to business applications.

    The bottom line is that if you want users, you need a user-friendly platform. Token mining, like a clean UX, is a part of that.

    Open’ money has greater value

    It may seem like token mining limits the demand for WAVES. Again, this is only true in the very short term.

    Network nodes will process transactions that they deem have value. The default currency is WAVES — if you pay fees in WAVES, then just about every node will want to process your transaction. More broadly, nodes will whitelist tokens they are happy to accept as fees, or more likely blacklist those they consider worthless or scam assets. If no node wants to process a transaction that tries to pay a fee in SCAMTOKEN, then SCAMTOKEN users will have to pay fees in WAVES.

    If you run a business based on Waves, you will almost certainly want to host a node and whitelist your own token. That way, whoever else believes your project and token have value, your transactions will be processed. You will also receive fees in your token, which of course you believe is valuable.

    Across the network as a whole, dozens or hundreds of different tokens will be accepted as fees. The more transactions, the more valuable it will be to run a node. But in order to run a node, you will always need WAVES. (At present, 10,000 are required.)

    What node operators do with their income from transactions fees is up to them, regardless of currency. They may sell it — whether it is WAVES or WCT or Ripto Bux — to pay server costs. They may hold it for the appreciation in value. As far as we know, nodes might be selling the WAVES that people are buying for tx fees anyway, cancelling out the artificial demand that such an arbitrary requirement placed on WAVES. Just as BTC miners have a choice, we don’t know what nodes will do with their earnings, and we don’t want to tell them how to use their own money. That’s up to them.

    History and common sense suggest that if you try to restrict how people use their money, you’ll end up disenfranchising them — like the company money that mining bosses used to circulate in remote mining towns, that could only be spent in the on-site company store. Money is more valuable when it’s ‘open’ — when it can be used freely, like open-source software vs its closed-source counterpart. The WAVES token is the gateway to all of that value. Node operators will see value in WAVES because it earns them money. Traders will see value in WAVES because they know it has income potential and that there is demand from nodes. And arbitrarily forcing users to pay tx fees in WAVES will alienate many of them, without intrinsically increasing demand anyway.

  • WAVES Weekly No. 33

    This week there are several great developments to announce in the Waves ecosystem.

    Bitcoin gateway

    The bitcoin gateway is going live soon. It will be possible to deposit BTC using a regular bitcoin wallet to the address displayed in your Waves client, under the Bitcoin tab on the home page. Your transfer will be processed by a Coinomat gateway, and WBTC tokens will be sent to your Waves address. The bitcoins you deposit are are backed 1:1.

    Similarly, for withdrawal, you will simply enter your bitcoin address into the Waves lite client to convert your WBTC tokens back into BTC.

    Android wallet on testnet

    The first version of the smartphone wallet has been released for Android on testnet. To try it out, download the wallet and install it on your device. You may need to alter permissions on your phone to allow this. Because this is testnet, create a new wallet rather than using an existing SEED. Get some testnet WAVES from the faucet, try it out and let us know if you have any feedback.

    We’ll be releasing the Android wallet for mainnet as soon as we’re satisfied there are no bugs, and are exploring creating an iPhone app too. For more information, see ‘Waves mobile app on testnet’.

    Upcoin wallet

    Russia’s Partiya Rosta (the ‘Party of Growth’) has created its own cryptocurrency and network community on the Waves blockchain. Upcoins will be earned by volunteering at party meetings and other activities, and can be spent on training and education. They will also use the wallet to vote securely and remotely. The initiative is spearheaded by Boris Titov, chairman of Partiya Rosta and Russia’s business ombudsman, and is the first ever blockhain-based social project. We expect this will bring greater exposure and transaction volumes to Waves.

    Fees in tokens

    Waves will have unique feature where it is possible to pay transaction fees using tokens issued on the Waves platform, as well as the native WAVES token itself. Network nodes will be able to decide which tokens they accept as payment, blacklisting worthless or scam tokens and accepting only those they want.

    The implications of this are very significant. It means that applications can be built on Waves without developers having to account for a second token being required for transaction fees. This removes a major source of friction and makes the platform highly attractive for businesses. At the same time, WAVES will always be required to run a staking node, but the income may be in different currencies.

    Waves mainnet v0.3.9 released

    If you would like to run a full node, please download the latest releases athttps://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/. Anyone can run a node, but you will need at least 10,000 WAVES to generate blocks. You can read the installation guide here.

(Please be aware that there have been issues with fake github repositories, as well as fake Twitter accounts and Slack identities.) Alternatively, the standalone Chrome app will automatically update as new versions are released.

  • Waves Weekly 33 ( Spanish)  Semanal #33

    Esta semana hay varios grandes desarrollos para anunciar en el ecosistema de Waves.

    Bitcoin Gateway.

    La pasarela bitcoin se pondrá en marcha pronto.
    Será posible depositar BTC usando una cartera bitcoin regular a la
    dirección mostrada en su cliente Waves, en la pestaña Bitcoin de la
    página de inicio. Su transferencia será procesada por una pasarela
    Coinomat y los tokens WBTC serán enviados a su dirección Waves. Los
    bitcoins que depositas son respaldados 1: 1.

    Del mismo modo, para
    la retirada, simplemente introduzca su dirección bitcoin en el cliente
    Waves lite para convertir sus tokens WBTC en BTC.

    Cartera Android en testnet

    La primera versión de la cartera de
    teléfonos inteligentes ha sido lanzada para Android en testnet. Para
    probarlo, descargue la cartera e instálela en su dispositivo. Puede que
    tenga que modificar los permisos en su teléfono para permitir esto.
    Debido a que se trata de testnet, cree una nueva cartera en lugar de
    utilizar una SEED existente. Obtenga algunas testnet WAVES del grifo,
    pruébelo y háganos saber si tiene algún comentario.

    Liberaremos la cartera de Android para mainnet tan pronto como nos demos cuenta de

    la cartera de Android para mainnet tan pronto como nos demos cuenta de
    que no hay bugs, y estamos explorando la creación de una aplicación de
    iPhone también. Para obtener más información, consulte "Aplicación móvil
    Waves en testnet".

    Upcoin

    La Partiya Rosta de Rusia (el "Partido del Crecimiento")
    ha creado su propia comunidad de criptografía y red en la cadena Block
    de Waves. Los Upcoins serán ganados por voluntariado en reuniones de
    partido y otras actividades, y pueden ser gastados en entrenamiento y
    educación. También usarán la billetera para votar de forma segura y
    remota. La iniciativa está encabezada por Boris Titov, presidente de
    Partiya Rosta y ombudsman de negocios de Rusia, y es el primer proyecto
    social de blockhain. Esperamos que esto traiga una mayor exposición y
    volúmenes de transacción a Waves.

    Tasas en tokens

    Waves tendrá una característica única donde es
    posible pagar los honorarios de transacción usando fichas emitidas en la
    plataforma Waves, así como el propio token WAVES. Los nodos de la red
    serán capaces de decidir qué fichas aceptan como pago, listando en la
    lista negra fichas inútiles o fraudulentas y aceptando sólo las que
    quieren.
    Las implicaciones de esto son muy significativas. Esto
    significa que las aplicaciones se pueden construir en Waves sin que los
    desarrolladores tengan que tener en cuenta que se requiere un segundo
    token para las comisiones de transacción. Esto elimina una importante
    fuente de fricción y hace que la plataforma sea altamente atractiva para
    las empresas. Al mismo tiempo, WAVES siempre será necesario para
    ejecutar un nodo de estacado, pero los ingresos pueden ser en diferentes
    monedas.

    Waves mainnet v0.3.9 publicado

    Si desea ejecutar un nodo completo, descargue las últimas versiones en https://github.com/wavesplatform/Waves/releases/.
    Cualquiera puede ejecutar un nodo, pero necesitará al menos 10.000
    WAVES para generar bloques. Puede leer la guía de instalación aquí.
    Para los usuarios regulares, el cliente Lite se puede descargar desde https://wavesplatform.com.
    No descargue el cliente de otras fuentes por razones de seguridad.
    (Tenga en cuenta que ha habido problemas con los repositorios falsos de
    github, así como falsas cuentas de Twitter y identidades Slack).
    Alternativamente, la aplicación independiente de Chrome se actualizará
    automáticamente a medida que se publiquen nuevas versiones.
