One of the first projects to focus on creating enterprise-grade blockchain DApps and custom-block processes on its platform is Waves. The platform is building towards giving developers the chance to create DApps and tokens securely and easily. The blockchain was launched in June 2016 following one of the cryptocurrency industry’s earliest initial coin offerings (ICO). By increasing speed, utility, and user-friendliness, Waves initially set out to improve on the first blockchain platforms. WAVES, the native token is an uncapped supply token used for standard payments such as block rewards.
Alexander Ivanov, also known as Sasha Ivanov is a Ukrainian-born scientist who introduced Waves to the crypto space. Before creating Waves, Ivanov was active in the crypto space already, having released the now-defunct instant exchange Coinomat and indexing site Cooleindex.
The Waves ecosystem has undergone many changes due to the project’s approach to keeping its blockchain competitive. Major changes in recent times include the change of a static 100 million supply to an inflationary supply in 2019 (in order to reward block miners more effectively).
The 2022 roadmap of Waves has unveiled more upcoming upgrades to the core code, changes large enough for the company to bring forth ‘Waves 2.0.’ Apart from that there has also been a full schedule release that states the changes happening throughout the first half of 2022. The upgrades include a shift from the current Leased Proof of Stake consensus model to Practical Proof-of-Stake Sharing. Not only is the consensus model on the verge of an upgrade, but also the addition of EVM capabilities. This will allow top-tier DeFi protocols and other apps on blockchains like Ethereum, Solana, BNBChain, etc. to build apps on Waves.
