What to consider when buying Waves

Note that there are inherent risks in cryptocurrency trading because of the speculative nature of the cryptocurrency market, which accounts for the volatility of coin prices. Before buying WAVES, consider the following factors:
  • Supply. According to the Waves platform, WAVES has a total supply of 100,000,000.
  • The goals of the Waves platform. The company behind WAVES hopes to attract companies looking to harness the blockchain for their own purposes, like crowdfunding and loyalty programs. Using the Waves wallet and their supply of WAVES tokens, companies can take advantage of the Waves DEX to exchange, release and mine their own tokens. The Waves platform intends to make the blockchain accessible to everyone and remove any hindrances to the development of blockchain applications of any kind.
  • Performance. You can study patterns behind the rise and fall of WAVES prices before you decide to purchase the token. However, you should take note that you may not be able to accurately predict future performance based on past performance.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Waves, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of WAVES is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Waves or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
