A universe of tokens
WAVES is a decentralized platform that allows any user to issue, transfer, swap and trade custom tokens directly on the blockchain.

Decentralized trading
WAVES uses blockchain technology to offer an integrated exchange which does not depend on a central authority, server, or static infrastructure.

Your gateway to the world
The gateways partnered with WAVES make a breeze to swap from digital assets to traditional money right into your bank account or viceversa.

Blockchain voting
WAVES also includes an innovative means of decentralized voting, with no single authority or the risk of manipulation this carries.

Decentralized crowdfunding
WAVES integrates its own crowdfunding platform, Crowdstarter, which allows entrepreneurs to launch their projects easily and in a decentralized manner.

Innovative reputation system
Absence of governance carries its own risks. WAVES’ decentralized reputation system will play a key role in bringing confidence to the assets ecosystem.
