Waves celebrates 6th anniversary
The ecosystem approaches this important date with strong performance and confidence about the future. The first step towards building what is now the Waves ecosystem was made in April 2016 when an ICO for the Waves platform attracted about $30 mln in Bitcoin. Shortly, the Waves testnet was inaugurated, followed by the mainnet launch in December 2016. The next major milestone was the launch of a decentralized exchange in 2017. One of the first DEXes immediately got traction thanks to its unprecedented speed and efficiency.
