      History of Waves(WAVES)

      Waves like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Waves’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Waves would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Waves was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Waves or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Waves is a cryptocurrency with the symbol WAVES and it’s price ticker on our website is 1.20. Its current price is 1.20 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.04. Waves boasts a volume of 446,645.80 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Waves Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Waves use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Waves base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Waves and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Waves network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Waves Operates on a Blockchain

      Waves, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Waves is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Waves is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Waves’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Waves runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Waves base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Waves are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Waves and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Waves also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Waves Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Waves (WAVES) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Waves’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Waves’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Waves which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Waves blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Waves blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Waves blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Waves Supply Details

      Waves is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about Waves’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Waves the total supply is 101299270. This is the sum of all Waves units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Waves is 101299270. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store Waves

      There are a few way to store your Wavess , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets. Regardless of what kind of wallet you will use, in order to access your Waves funds you will need to have a private key and a public key. With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that Waves is compatible with. Never ever disclose your Waves private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send Waves to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      Waves Paper Wallet

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your Waves is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your Wavess. Simply write the private and public keys of your Waves wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your Waves funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Waves public key.

      Waves Hardware Wallet

      You can store Waves on a device like a Trezor or USB drive. You are able to make online transactions by plugging them into any any net enabled device to send Waves to another address. Usually the hardware device that you store your Waves on is offline which is a great security advantage. Please conduct proper research before purchasing any hardware wallet to store Waves funds on as many are outdated or of poor quality.

      Waves Desktop Wallet

      Desktop wallets are a convenient and easy way to store your Waves coins. Find a reliable wallet software that support Waves install it on your PC and that’s pretty much it. It can be dangerous if any virus infects your PC or if any physical damage comes to it, which can result in the loss of all your Waves funds.

      Waves Online Wallet

      For online wallets, they operate in the cloud and your private and public keys for your Waves funds are stored in the cloud as well. Very handy if you plan to access it from multiple devices but they also put your Waves at great risk due to security breaches in the cloud storage which is not that unheard of.

      Waves Mobile Wallet

      The most easy-to-use method of storing Waves is on a mobile wallet. It is a simple smartphone application where you set up an account and you can use it to send Waves by scanning a QR code or even use it to pay in any shops that accept Waves. However, your Waves funds can be lost if your phone is damaged or if its security is breached.

      Waves Summary

      Waves’s network can be defined as a payment system, with accounts, transactions and balances. You can store Waves on one of the wallet types mentioned above and it will act as your own personal bank account that you are responsible of maintaining and keeping your private keys secure. Waves as a cryptocurrency allows you to make secure transactions and you can always check the transaction details by checking the Waves public ledger, if applicable. This revolutionary method of being your own bank assured that Waves and other cryptocurrencies will play a vital role in the way we conduct transactions and how we define currencies in the future.
