Assets

Asset is a sort of a digital asset that has a certain consensus value. The Waves platform allows users to create their own tokens to fulfill their specific need.

1. Issuing your own Token

Waves platform allows business to issue their own tokens for whatever needs they have. By releasing tokens, a business is able to create an internal digital currency via the blockchain. This way, it can use the blockchain to pay for the services and goods within projects or even crowdfunding.

Issuing a token on the Waves Platform comes with multiple benefits, including the ability to trade the token instantly on the Waves Decentralized Exchange. Not only that, but Waves tokens can also be used to pay fees within the network, creating additional demand for custom assets on its blockchain. After the initial creation of an asset, the total tokens supply can be further increased.
