Contrary to many unfounded and incorrect reports currently being published in the cryptocurrency-focused media space, the Waves platform is currently not in any danger — quite the opposite, in fact.

According to an official statement on the company’s blog, the Waves Platform remains fully active and any information on the project’s bankruptcy is false. Furthermore, the company remains truthful in following the interests of its investors, and any actions currently taking place are “in total compliance with business ethics and all initial agreements.” In fact, the project is currently being streamlined to increase Waves’ overall performance.

The UK-registered entity in question was reportedly active during the project’s early stages and was used primarily for the purposes of marketing and promoting the project. Said entity simply no longer fit into Waves’ business model, and is not representative of any internal or financial issues at the company.

Waves Platform AG already moved its headquarters to the famously cryptocurrency-friendly country of Switzerland in December of last year.

Contrary to any rumor-mongering reports floating about, Waves simply chose not to renew the UK-registered entity’s registration in the less cryptocurrency-friendly nation. The Waves team explained:

The change of jurisdiction will allow the project to enhance relationships with counterparties and expand to new markets. The official announcement of company’s launch in Switzerland and the names of advisory board members is scheduled for the end of June 2018.

The Waves team has also noted that the failure to renew the UK-registered entity is actually for the benefit of both the platform’s users and investors. The company stated:

Streamlining is a standard procedure in any international company. Waves moving to Swiss jurisdiction is done solely in the interests of our investors and users, it does not pose any potential threat to them.

Late last month, Waves officially launched smart contracts on the platform’s testnet. This first release effectively allows community members to test non-Turing complete contracts. These smart contracts allow for a variety of account controls, in addition to other functionalities.

Smart contract support will launch on the platform’s mainnet very soon.

Waves also remains, arguably, one of the most undervalued cryptocurrencies in the market right now.
