December 28, 2016, Moscow, Russia – Business Incubator of Higher School of Economics in Moscow has announced the second year of fintech startup program HSE{Pro}Fintech. Official partners of the fintech section are Waves, the decentralized platform for crowdfunding and community management and National Settlement Depository. FinTech applications The Incubator recently launched the second round of its {pro} fintech programme. The program aims to develop projects in the field of financial and blockchain technologies, in particular services for banks and their customers, personal finance management systems, peer-to-peer services, investment systems, payments, transfers and other fintech products. Whilst Bitcoin has pioneered peer-to-peer online money transfer for almost 8 years now, Blockchain 2.0 technology is still in its relative infancy. A number of decentralised asset exchanges have already been created, including on the Nxt, BitShares, and Counterparty platforms. However, none of these have achieved significant traction, for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were small ecosystems. The assets traded generally had low liquidity and high spreads, and being decentralised platforms there was little accountability and a large proportion of low-quality and fraudulent assets. Regulations were practically non-existent. Additionally, trading was slow due to inherent block-time limitations of the blockchain. This made it almost impossible to attract legitimate new businesses and for these early decentralised exchanges to achieve critical mass. New solutions Waves platform is aiming to bring solutions to all of these problems with its Waves’ DEX (decentralised exchange), which has just been released on testnet. It allows any token to be traded directly against any other token – rather than trading two tokens separately against a reference currency, as most other...
