DLTMARKET is a decentralized platform that uses custom blockchain tokens to represent value. Tokens can be issued by any platform user, and can be transferred, swapped, and traded on an integrated decentralized exchange. Tokens may represent a share in a crowdfunding project, financial instrument, or any other item with inherent value. Traditional centralized crowdfunding and trading platforms rely on a third party to maintain the platform, thus sacrificing transparency and becoming prone to failures due to over-centralization. Blockchain technology allows the elimination of any centralized point of failure, storing all the platform data on all system nodes in a distributed fashion. It makes fully decentralized trading, crowdfunding and value transfer possible.
The goal of the DLTMARKET platform is to create an environment in which users of traditional online financial platforms will feel comfortable. WAVES is built using a two-tier architecture, where the end-user client takes the form of a browser plug-in that can be installed with a couple of clicks. Upon installation a user is presented with a full-scale decentralized financial platform, right in the browser, similar to traditional online banking/trading/crowdfunding platforms. We believe that mass market adoption of blockchain technology will only be possible through ease of use, accessibility, a flat learning curve and by addressing the most acute issues that centralization brings.
