What is Waves? 

Waves was made as a multi-purpose blockchain platform that would support numerous use cases including decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts. It was launched back in June 2016 in the wake of the cryptocurrency industry’s earliest initial coin offerings (ICO). Waves was originally created with the aim of improving on the first blockchain platform. They would do this by increasing speed, utility and user-friendliness. The platform has experienced a variety of alterations and has added a new spin-off feature to help build on its original design.

The Native token is WAVES. It is an uncapped supply token that is primarily utilized for standard payments such as block rewards. As one of the original coin offerings, Waves began with the intention of improving on the early blockchain platforms and products.
From the beginning, it intended to attract potential business clients considering blockchain technology to enhance processes or create additional services.


Ukrainian-born scientist Alexander Ivanov is the founder of Waves, he also goes by the name of Sasha Ivanov. Preceding the creation Waves, Ivanov was already involved in the crypto space. He had already published the now-defunct instant exchange Coinomat and indexing site Cooleindex. He was also the creator of an experimental version of a stablecoin, CoinoUSD, tied to the U.S. dollar.

Ivanov actively promotes Waves, giving frequent interviews on the platform and trends in the wider blockchain industry. Waves’ now employs over 180 people at locations including Moscow and Switzerland.


Introduction of community-drive block generation rewards - September 2019

The Waves team created an on-chain governance system to validate a new mining reward for each generated block. The new block reward moved Waves away from a deflationary monetary system, with the team believing that it would limit the demand for leasing and use of the WAVES token. By increasing inflation, a potential to help boost the demand for leasing WAVES is made while simultaneously attracting new participants to the network.
