Waves Platform is a decentralized platform for crowdfunding and creation of digital tokens. It is the biggest blockchain project with Russian roots. The Waves cryptocurrency platform focuses chiefly on the creation/distribution, trading and exchange of assets/tokens on the blockchain. One of the main features of the project is a focus on ease of use and mass adoption.

As a consensus algorithm, Proof-of-Stake is used. In June 2016 Waves successfully finished its ICO (Initial Coin Offering - public sale of coins), collecting more than $16M (30,000 BTC). It was listed in the TOP 3 of the most successful blockchain projects.
