According to its website, Waves is “a community-based stack of decentralized open-source technologies to build scalable, user-friendly apps.” Besides, it is a multi-purpose blockchain platform which supports various use cases, including decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts.

Based on proof-of-stake consensus, Waves aspires to make the most of blockchain, with minimal carbon footprint.
Waves technologies are supported by the Waves Association, a Berlin-based non-profit organization, which fosters Waves research, education, and provides grants for projects based on Waves stack. However, “Neither controlling nor leading lies in the hands of the association — Waves is built and maintained by the community.”
