What is it?
The Waves platform founded in 2016 as a project to develop an ecosystem consisting of a blockchain platform which makes users be able to create their own custom tokens. It provides smart contract solution and also a decentralized exchange named Waves DEX.
The developers realized that the implementation of blockchain in everyday life is slow. So, they provided Waves platform as a solution. They believed that with their new idea the process of blockchain adoption would speed up and could get to use in various field.
