The fact that Wirex recently surpassed the two million user mark on its platform – is a sure sign that crypto adoption is on the rise. Already boasting a growing list of coins including BTC, ETH, LTC, and XRP, the Wirex team has announced that they have added the WAVES token to their platform, increasing token liquidity and making the token more accessible to a wider customer base.
The Waves platform offers an easy-to-use way of developing dApps for businesses, developers, and individuals. It is also possible for projects to launch their own tokens on the Waves blockchain and trade them on Waves’ integrated DEX.
In many ways, Waves is comparable to Ethereum. However, it has been noted widely that the Waves blockchain is faster and more secure than Ethereum. Furthermore, the proprietary programming language, RIDE, is easier to learn than Ethereum’s Solidity, thereby cutting development costs and saving time for growing projects.
In a press release announcing the new listing, Sasha Ivanov, CEO and Founder of Waves Platform, said “We see Waves as the bridge that will facilitate the transition from web 2.0 to web 3.0. The goal of our team is to put tools in place that will allow both enterprise and individuals to easily implement their own blockchains, while improving the UX of DApps and blockchain infrastructure.”
While Waves will act as a bridge between web 2.0 and web 3.0, Wirex acts as a bridge in its own right as society moves towards a digital financial future. Pavel Matveev, CEO and Co-founder of Wirex, commented, “While the Waves Platform is a bridge between the web and blockchain, we are a bridge between traditional and digital currencies.”
“Together we solve many pain points in the industry. Our platform provides extra liquidity for cryptocurrencies and gives investors the ability to convert and spend their crypto instantly with our Wirex Visa card. Investors who buy WAVES through our platform will know they are with a safe, agile, cost-effective service. In addition, our existing users will have another strong and popular token to add to their portfolios.”
