Blockchain capabilities upgraded by Waves platform

A key system update that will begin the process of activating Smart Contracts on the platform’s MainNet, has been announced by decentralised platform  Waves, which is offering a complete ecosystem for blockchain developers.

The update starts a process of voting for the miners who maintain the network. This process must successfully conclude to activate the new protocol and switch on smart contract functionality for alnetwork users. After reaching the required 80% of the votes, the protocol will be activated a week later. When activation occurs, smart contracts will become available for developers who wish to use them in their projects.

Smart Accounts will provide the most popular and in-demand features for the crypto community, and will apply to various token operations. The list of features to be deployed includes: Multi-signature wallets, Atomic swaps, Token freezing, Two-Factor Authentication, Whitelist voting, and Data Oracles.

To achieve this we are trying to look at the system through the typical user’s eyes and understand what he needs most. This is the essence of our approach to Smart Accounts. Importantly, it does not requires any “Gas” for execution, unlike Ethereum. The fees will be the same as for a standard transaction within the net...
