Ride is Waves’ functional purpose-designed smart contract language for dApp development, designed for applying scripts to assets and accounts on the Waves blockchain, as well as for creating sophisticated programmable logic for a decentralized environment. Waves has a unique approach to decentralized application development whereby the absence of gas and non-Turing complete language help to keep the system secure and predictable.
The Waves protocol’s smart contracts enable changing the default behaviour of accounts and assets. Using smart contracts on Waves, you can also create a dApp — an application that is stored and executed on the blockchain network. Try Integrated Development Environment to see how it works.
Leased Proof of Stake (LPoS) is an enhanced proof of stake consensus algorithm that allows you to lease your tokens to a Waves node, earning a percentage of the node payout, as a reward.
Waves security is guaranteed by time-proven Proof-of-Stake consensus with more than 300 nodes all over the world. Ride language is built on a tech stack designed to avoid programming mistakes potentially leading to serious errors. Interaction with blockchain-enabled applications is seamless and safe.
The major problem that oracles solve is that blockchains can only access data stored within the blockchain. Oracles provide connection with real-world data. Developers can explore existing oracles or build your own. Gravity, a decentralized cross-chain and oracle network powered by Waves, designed to set the data transfer form outside world and different blockchains.
The blockchain industry consists of various isolated mini-ecosystems, all serving different but overlapping purposes. Solving this fragmentation and interconnecting the cumulative functionality of our industry is one of Waves’ key points of focus. Rather than to try and squeeze everything in one chain, the solution lies in inter-chain interaction that is truly blockchain-agnostic, without a new native token, but with its tokenomics based on the respective economies of participating chains. Explore Gravity — a decentralized cross-chain and oracle network.
