of next-generation decentralized tech
in the Waves ecosystem.
The Waves Association’s mission is to support the building of next-generation decentralized technologies with a high potential for sustainability and mass adoption.
The Waves Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the global adoption of the Web 3.0 paradigm through fostering research and education and providing grants for projects built on the Waves protocol.
The association is focused on five main areas:
Support and development for Waves technologies: infrastructure, dApps and various development tools
The grant program aims to incentivize individual developers, teams and startups to build projects that will contribute to the ecosystem and achieve mass adoption through the creation of diverse use cases in the Waves ecosystem.
The association aims to establish an open platform to drive multidirectional conversations and a support system for community members in order to identify current and future challenges, needs and expectations, and as a result collaborate on solutions in the Waves ecosystem. Through these channels, it aims to facilitate transparent communication in order to manage community expectation and develop trust.
DAO-style governance is implemented for decision-making and voting on major issues.
The Waves Association supports the production of educational courses and materials, as well as other activities, including those run in collaboration with universities and research institutions with the aim to onboard more people into the Waves ecosystem.
Open-source blockchain technology for dApps as well as decentralized solutions: combined with both security and high transaction speeds for a wide range of on-chain operations. Waves technology supports development of decentralized application (dApps).
