Waves Client Officially Launches After 53 Beta Releases
After 53 beta releases and extensive testing from the Waves development team, Waves Client has finally launched.
Many in the cryptocurrency space are already familiar with the popular platform, which has long featured an intuitive user interface and robust security measures like client-side signatures. Waves also notably does not require users to sync the blockchain when using a local wallet and features an exceptional decentralized exchange (DEX) with high levels of liquidity and an extremely fast platform.
Waves Client has also already been making it easy to create original tokens quickly and cheaply, while also supporting massive airdrops without overflowing the blockchain with pending transactions.
Gateways within the Waves client have also been affording users the ability to deposit both cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies — including BTC, BCH, ETH, ZEC, DASH, LTC, XMR, EUR, USD, and TRY — while also receiving tokens which may be held or traded on DEX. As an added bonus, tokens may also be cashed out for crypto or fiat to external wallets or bank accounts via the same gateways.
Additionally, Waves smart contracts will allow for the control of accounts via features such as multi-sig, balance freezing and more — with Turing-complete contracts to be launched later this year.
With such a strong foundation already constructed, Waves has finally released the full version of its client.
Major DEX Improvements
The latest version of the Waves client is improved in virtually every way — but it is the newly designed decentralized exchange (DEX) that has perhaps seen the greatest update.
The Waves team has completely redesigned DEX’s user interface and added new APIs. Stability improvements have also been implemented, making the custom-built data infrastructure more solid than ever. A night mode and asset manager are also welcome additions for users of the exchange.
From an objective perspective, the new version of Waves DEX puts it closer in line with the market leaders and top cryptocurrency exchanges. High levels of liquidity, low fees, and improved functionality will likely entice more traders to join the platform — which has never been hacked or experienced downtime.
Founder and CEO of Waves, Alexander Ivanov, tweeted:

“We updated the platform with the aim of making token creation and crypto trading accessible for everybody. We want to provide the fastest, lowest-cost, most secure and user-friendly blockchain platform available on the market.”

Next up on the docket is the integration of the Waves client with hardware wallets, the implementation of two-factor authentication, and the launching of smart accounts on the mainnet.
