Waves launches Ether gateway


Having successfully launched bitcoin, USD and EUR gateways, Waves has now implemented an Ether gateway within the lite client – opening more possibilities for decentralised trading. The gateway will enable users to store ETH and trade it against other tokens on the DEX.






The Ethereum gateway will work in a similar way to the existing bitcoin gateway: users will send ETH to the given address within the client and will receive a Waves token in return. These tokens will be backed 1:1 with Ether, and can be withdrawn and exchanged for ETH at any time.

Meanwhile, whilst they remain within the Waves blockchain ecosystem, the Waves ETH tokens can be stored securely and transferred with the speed and low cost of the Waves network. In particular, it will be possible to trade them against other Waves tokens – including WBTC and WAVES itself. This means that users will be able to trade ETH peer-to-peer on DEX, against BTC, WAVES, USD and EUR, as well as any other token. Thanks to Waves’ centralised order matching, the DEX approaches the speed of a traditional exchange, but with the security of blockchain settlement.

“We’re really pleased to add another gateway to the Waves client,” comments Sasha Ivanov, Waves CEO. “Ethereum is the foremost blockchain platform after bitcoin itself, and it’s important to be able to offer users the opportunity to trade ETH on a decentralised exchange. In due course we’ll be adding more coin gateways, broadening our appeal and allowing not only trading but Waves crowdsales that collect a whole range of cryptocurrencies directly.”
