众筹1600万美元,Waves跻身第六大区块链众筹项目

上周,区块链平台Waves在ICO中筹得了1600万美元(29636 BTC)。来自维基百科的数据显示,该项目已经排在the DAO和以太坊之后成为目前第三大区块链众筹项目。近日,Waves首席执行官萨沙·伊万诺夫(Sasha Ivanov)在接受Bitcoin.com采访时,就Waves项目谈论了一些具体细节问题。

Bitcoin.com(BC):你能否为我们的读者简介一下Waves平台?

WAVES 萨沙·伊万诺夫(SI):Waves平台是一个开放的区块链平台,它专注于区块链定制资产的创造及使用、法币的转让、众筹、金融工具交易及结算。我们的目标是为支付系统、银行、众筹项目提供一个稳定的开放式平台,并为基于社区的项目创造一个生态系统。

我们专注于实用性和易用性。我们想要让普通用户也能访问区块链技术。我们的精简版客户端软件,可单击安装并直接运行在浏览器中,用户不需要下载区块链。

BC:你说Waves项目是受到了NXT的启发,能告诉我们是怎么回事么?

SI:NXT是首批允许用户创造自有区块链代币并在区块链上进行交易的平台之一。已有数十项众筹活动在NXT平台上成功完成了。NXT技术使用了彩色币技术来定制代币,这是以太坊智能合约的一种补充方式。以太坊的方法可能是更为根本的,但NXT的方法则更直接,并且在所有运行合约的网络节点都不会遭遇可扩展性的问题。

BC:关于比特币网络,你们的团队又是怎么看的呢?

SI:在某些更好的东西出现之前(如果有的话),比特币应作为主要的去中心化资金。我们的平台将支持比特币存款及交易。

对于即将到来的闪电网络,我们感到非常兴奋,我们希望它能够成功推出,并且我们计划在 Waves平台上实施类似的做法。

BC: 你能否解释一下,Waves是如何实现众筹、社区管理,还有加密消息等应用的?

SI:彩色币是一种多功能的工具,它可用于各种应用,包括价值转移、交易、信誉系统、奖励代币、代币投票……基本上,你都可以用区块链代币来代表任何种类有价值的东西。因此,WAVES的目标是创造一个终极的自定义代币平台,最大化利用彩色币技术,类似于以太坊最大化利用了比特币脚本。

因此,通过发行一种定制代币,用户可以开启一个众筹活动,而投资者通过购买代币,可直接对项目进行投票或其他各种活动。

BC:信誉系统是如何工作的?

SI:信誉系统,主要是指去中心化的KYC / AML,它的目的是帮助清除坏的参与者,并可能取代掉中心化的KYC/AML。用户的信誉,将根据他的网络活动和其他用户的反馈来进行计算。

BC:关于最近和 Mycelium的合作,你能为我们的读者透露一点什么吗?

SI:Mycelium可能是最大的移动端比特币钱包,它拥有一个非常活跃的用户群,所以这次合作对我们来说,是非常重要的。我们要与 Mycelium钱包实现的法币转移功能,可能会成为移动支付的游戏规则改变者,它可以颠覆国际汇款,这是我们合作的另一个方向。

BC:你们这轮众筹可以说是非常成功的,它成为了史上第六大众筹项目,这在区块链项目当中,仅排在 the DAO和以太坊之后。你能谈谈体验么?

SI:这是一次令人兴奋的体验。在ICO期间,同加密货币社区的互动帮助我们更好地塑造了我们的视野,并理解社区现在对区块链技术的期望。我认为,社区反馈对去中心化P2P系统的发展是极其重要的。

BC:你对以太坊协议以及the DAO枢纽概念有什么看法?

SI:以太坊是惊人的,它是比特币技术合乎逻辑的发展,它绝对是无法回避的。我们不是要和以太坊竞争,我们是要与它合作。

我们计划实施的代币转移协议,将允许在以太坊和Waves区块链之间转移代币。也就是说,它将允许用户在Waves去中心化代币交易所上交易以太坊代币。

我们不会和以太坊竞争,我们将要和它合作。

BC:你期望Waves何时完成测试网络,轻客户端的推出时间又是在什么时候?

SI:是的,我们非常看好,预计在几天内,我们就会上线alpha版主网络。而全节点软件将在六月底可用。

BC:Waves 团队的整体使命是什么?

SI:我们的使命,是为广大人民群众建立一个区块链平台,并让区块链技术走向主流。

This week, we covered the news on the asset and custom token blockchain platform Waves raising $16 million with its ICO. The crowdfund made history by becoming the sixth-largest right behind the cryptocurrency project Ethereum according to Wikipedia. Bitcoin.com decided to speak with the Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov to get the nitty gritty on this project.

Ivanov tells us the Waves team are big fans of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the project was inspired by the NXT platform. The platform has big plans for the future and just recently partnered with Mycelium to offer fiat conversion to the company’s wallet.

Waves: ‘A Blockchain Platform for the Masses’

Bitcoin.com (BC): Can you explain to our readers in simple terms just what the Waves platform is?

Sasha Ivanov (SI): The Waves platform is an open blockchain platform focused on creation and usage of custom blockchain tokens, fiat transfers, crowdfunding, financial instruments trading and settlement. Our goal is to offer a stable open platform for payment systems, banks, crowdfunding projects, and create an ecosystem of community-based projects.

We are focused on usability and the ease of use. We want to make the blockchain technology accessible for an average user, accustomed to normal online banking interfaces. Our lite client software can be installed in one click and runs directly in the browser, requiring no blockchain download.

BC: You say you were inspired by NXT can you tell us how so?

SI: NXT was one of the first platforms that allowed users to create their own blockchain tokens, and trade them on the blockchain. Dozens of successful crowdfunding campaigns have been launched on it. NXT technology uses a colored coin approach to custom tokens, which supplements the Ethereum approach with blockchain smart contracts. Ethereum approach might be more fundamental, but NXT approach is more direct and does not have scalability issues that running contracts on all network nodes encounters.

BC: How does your team feel about the Bitcoin network?

SI: Bitcoin should be the major form of decentralized money before something better is invented (if ever). We’re going to support Bitcoin deposits and trading directly on our blockchain.

We’re very excited about the upcoming Lightning Network, and we hope that it’ll be launched successfully, and we plan to implement similar approach later on Waves.

BC: Can you explain how Waves incorporates crowdfunding, community management, encrypted messaging?

SI: Colored coins are a versatile tool that can be used for various applications – value transfer, trading, Reputation systems, rewards tokens, voting token… Basically, you can represent any kind of value with blockchain tokens. So WAVES goal is to create an ultimate custom tokens platform and take the colored coins approach to the maximum, similar to how Ethereum takes Bitcoin scripting to the maximum.

So by issuing a custom token a user can start a crowdfunding campaign (offering it for sale), participate in other campaigns by buying the tokens, vote for the directions projects take (by voting through some special tokens), etc.

BC: How does the reputation system work?

SI: The reputation system is meant to be some sort of decentralized KYC/AML, which is going to help weed out bad players and, potentially, replace centralized KYC/AML. User karma will be calculated based on his network activity and feedback from other users.

BC: Can you tell our readers a little about the recent partnership with Mycelium?

SI: Mycelium is probably the biggest mobile bitcoin wallet with a very active user base, so this partnership is important for us. We’re going to implement fiat transfer within Mycelium wallet, which can increase the mobile wallet user base very substantially. Bringing fiat transfers on blockchain can become a game-changer for mobile payments and also can disrupt international remittance; this is another direction of our cooperations.

BC: Your crowdfunding did very well and became the 6th largest to date just under ETH and the DAO. Can you tell us about this experience?

SI: This was an exciting experience. Interacting with cryptocurrency community during the ICO has helped us shape up our vision better, and understand what community expects from blockchain technology now. I think that community feedback is extremely important for the development of decentralized p2p systems.

BC: What is your opinion of the Ethereum protocol and the DAO Hub concept?

SI: Еthereum is amazing and, being a logical development of Bitcoin technology, is absolutely inevitable. We’re not going to compete with Ethereum; we’re going to cooperate with it.

We plan to implement token transfer protocol which is going to allow to transfer tokens between Ethereum and Waves blockchains. It is going to allow to trade Ethereum tokens on Waves decentralized token exchange, for example.

We’re not going to compete with Ethereum; we’re going to cooperate with it.

BC: When do you expect to be finished with the test net launch and end-user light client launch? Do you believe you are on schedule?

SI: Yes, we’re pretty much on schedule, we’ll have the alpha mainnet online within several days. Full nodes software will be available until the end of June.

BC: What is the overall mission for the Waves team?

SI: Our mission is to make a blockchain platform for the masses, and take the blockchain technology mainstream.
