Waves Platform Implements New Blockchain Scalability Approaches

Waves Platform Implements New Blockchain Scalability Approaches

Bitcoin Press Release: Waves platform is making progress with scalability solutions for its blockchain network. January 13, 2017, Moscow, Russia – Waves platform, the custom blockchain token initiative targeting mass-market consumer and business adoption, has announced a series of measures to enable greater network scalability. Scalability has long been a problem for cryptocurrency platforms. Since every transaction is recorded on the blockchain, the requirement of resources to process and store the information continues to increase. Bitcoin itself has been the subject of numerous scalability proposals, including Segregated Witness (SegWit) to improve its current maximum capacity and allow greater adoption. Diverse Approaches for Scalability The Waves team has made a series of publications and presentations aimed at addressing various aspects of scalability. These will be integrated into the Waves protocol in near future. Early in January, Leonid Reyzin delivered a presentation titled “Improving Authenticated Dynamic Dictionaries” at Real World Crypto 2017. It offered details about possible ways to streamline the large and growing key value store associated with blockchain transactions. The implementation of authenticated data structures allows for continued use of lower-powered devices to maintain the network, enabling greater efficiency than current approaches. Waves platform is refactoring and optimizing the storage to reduce blockchain size so that it is ready for different implementations in the near future. Next-gen PoS and Choices for Miners This can dramatically increase transaction throughput. Using these combined techniques, the Waves development team aims not only to improve security and create a robust network but also to raise the transaction capacity. However, until blockchain can scale properly it cannot hope to compete against traditional payment processors...

Status.im, an Ethereum Mobile Client Launches in Alpha, Aimed at Early Adopters and Developers

Status.im, an Ethereum Mobile Client Launches in Alpha, Aimed at Early Adopters and Developers

Singapore – 6 January 2016 – Status, an Ethereum light client targeting Android & iOS unveiled its feature light alpha today. The alpha release aims to provide developers with a glimpse at how interacting with decentralized applications (DApps) will look through its open source interface. As a base offering, Status is both a messenger, and a DApp browser — enabling users to access decentralized applications, along with sending encrypted messages, smart contracts, and digital currency to one another using Ethereum’s decentralized protocols. Status utilizes messaging as a platform, upon which Ethereum DApp developers can integrate with through its Chat API and developer tooling, slated for the Beta release. “One way to think about Status is that it’ll eventually serve as a sort of onramp or gateway so that everyday people can benefit from decentralized applications built on Ethereum, whilst simultaneously helping DApp developers to reach new users,” said Co-Founder Jarrad Hope, adding “It’s been a long time coming, but we couldn’t be more excited about releasing this to the Ethereum community; as an alpha release it’ll inevitably have its fair share of bugs, and we have a tremendous amount of work still ahead of us, but it’s an important milestone nonetheless.” Messaging as a platform is already a proven model in many markets, but Status is perhaps the first decentralized, blockchain-based interpretation. “In our eyes Status provides a clear path towards Ethereum user-adoption on a meaningful scale, while remaining flexible and general enough to cater to the wide range of DApp ideas we’re yet to see conceived,” said Co-Founder Carl Bennetts, “We truly believe that Ethereum and blockchain technology...
Waves Blockchain Platform Introduces New Framework for Community-Based Ratings Organizations

Waves Blockchain Platform Introduces New Framework for Community-Based Ratings Organizations

Bitcoin Press Release: Waves Platform has announced the launch of a new token for community-based KYC/screening of new assets. January 6, 2017, Moscow, Russia – The Waves platform has announced the upcoming launch of a new token as a part of its recently introduced Custom Application Token (CAT) facility on the mainnet. The new token distribution will enable Waves to foster community engagement in the next nine months. The new token, aptly called the Waves Community Token (WCT) will be distributed after January 15, 2017. Initially, 20 percent of the WCTs will be distributed across all existing Waves wallet addresses based on their average WAVES balance between 1st and 15th January 2017. The initial distribution will be followed by 8 similar distributions in tranches of 10 percent each time. In order to be able to receive the WCTs, Waves community members should be holding their balance in Waves local wallets. Any WAVES tokens on exchange platforms are not eligible for WCT distribution. Waves Community Token is designed to be much more than an alternative to Ethereum’s DAOs, which was compromised earlier in 2016. However, WCTs have better security, reliability and can serve a number of purposes. The DAO like feature on WCT enables members to offer community-based ratings for new projects launched on Waves platform. Asset issuers on Waves platform will also be able to distribute a proportion of their crowdfunded tokens to the WCT and Waves community in return for various services. Waves Community Token (WCT), like any other Waves CAT assets, is freely transferable and tradable. WCT holders are eligible to receive a constant stream of asset...
