Waves Wesbite & Nodes Update
We started the custom token implementation, which will be tested and launched soon after the full nodes release with latest POS implementation. In parallel we’re working on selecting a proper matching engine and finishing the concept of trustless HFT-enabled exchange combining off-chain order with on-chain settlement at the same time. In view of recent hacks at major exchanges it becomes especially important to create a fast, secure and trustless asset exchange solution.
The full node release candidate is going through a successful testing and we welcome feedback from anyone who wants to help with the process of ensuring the Waves network remains secure and stable. As always it is the priority number one. Consequently, the next of major changes to the UI will be occuring in time. After the most essential functionality is ready we`ll move to LPOS and this is going to be an industry-grade system enabling launching a banking like platforms and many other concepts based on Waves.
