Waves’ Blockchain Gaming Fund Raises Nearly $2 Million
Waves (WAVES), a blockchain platform centered around a multi-currency wallet that features a decentralized exchange (DEX), has launched a nearly $2 million fund (1,000,000 WAVES) dedicated to building games on its network.

According to the announcement, Waves has launched a new game asset tokenization platform, created a number of smart contracts specifically designed for gaming, and is currently building a software development kit (SDK) and non-fungible tokens to facilitate the growth of its ecosystem.
“I believe that the gaming sector will be an enthusiastic adopter of blockchain, and will drive its widespread use. Given the mutual opportunity here, we are more than ready to reward developers for the effort they make in implementing their projects within Waves ecosystem,” said Sasha Ivanov, the founder and CEO of Waves.
Waves is currently looking to fund three categories of teams, including those looking to transfer from other blockchain networks, those with existing games looking to integrate Waves into their platforms and those with game prototypes looking to build on Waves from the ground up.
These game developers will be able to leverage Wave’s decentralized exchange template to develop their own game asset marketplaces, in addition to one-click approval tools to access the Waves blockchain, both on mobile and browser.
WAVES is currently trading for $1.91, giving the altcoin a $191 million market cap and making it the 43rd largest coin in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
