CCN was founded in the summer of 2013 as CryptoCoinsNews. We have been around for six years. We are (were?) the crypto-related news site with the highest amount of traffic worldwide. Although CoinDesk and Cointelegraph have been friendly competitors with us the past six years for the #1 Alexa spot.

The CCN team also noted that the June update had a negative impact on the traffic of the aforementioned CoinDesk and CoinTelegraph, the traffic of which decreased by more than 20%.

It should be noted that soon after the rebranding and the change of the name, CCN often published news that was indirectly related to the blockchain industry, for example, related to the global economy, politics, the US-China trade war, etc.

Now CCN intends to reorient its team of more than 60 people to work with the HVY journalistic platform.

Waves blockchain platform this Tuesday announced the release of a major update Node 1.0, which will significantly expand the capabilities of its ecosystem.

The developers call Node 1.0 the culmination of months-long work and pay particular attention to the release of the RIDE programming language for the core network Waves, which is focused on creating stable decentralized applications.

In addition, with Node 1.0 in Waves, it will be possible to release collection items on the blockchain or non-fungible-tokens, similar to those used, for example, in Ethereum-based CryptoKitties.

Also, users of the Waves decentralized exchange will be able to use assets other than WAVES coins to pay commissions. Calculation of commissions in this case will be carried out on the basis of the exchange rate of Waves DEX. The developers claim that their community members have been asking for a long time to implement this feature.

Activation of the update will require the accumulation of 80% of the votes of the participants in the ecosystem. For comparison, in EOS, where a similar consensus mechanism is used, the minimum bar is 15%. Node 1.0 on the Waves core network will be launched one week after reaching the specified number of votes. At the same time, users and developers will have access to all the new features.
