WAVES lite client and launch schedule

Tuesday 31 May 2016

WAVES lite client will be available directly after ICO ends, with trading enabled on exchanges from mid-June.

After WAVES’ remarkable seven-week ICO, during which millions of dollars worth of BTC was collected, investors will be able to withdraw their tokens within days.

The lite client (above) is a clean and highly user-friendly interface to the network. It is designed to be downloaded to a local computer and run from Chrome, rather than accessed from a web link. No blockchain download is required. A link for the download will be provided at the end of the ICO.

Mainnet will launch on 2 June, but initially will rely on nodes hosted by the WAVES team. This is to ensure a stable and secure network, allowing for iterations and optimisation as required, before the code is released and anyone is able to run a node. The WAVEStalk forum will also be launched immediately after ICO.

During the initial phase, investors can move tokens to their own addresses from their ICO log-in areas. Bounties will be distributed. This stage will take around two weeks to allow everybody to withdraw their funds, and to allow a full security audit to be conducted.

On 14 June the code to run a node will be released to exchanges, and official trading on exchanges will start. Further functionality such as Voting and the Asset Exchange will be added in the coming months.
