Such a notable price rise might be connected with the updates and innovations which were presented by Waves platform during the week. For instance, on November 14 the Waves platform claimed that it has successfully tested the NG consensus protocol, which promises increased speeds and throughput on the blockchain.

On November 15 the platform announced that miners rewards will substantially rise as the terms for miners are changing, making running a node or leasing the balance more profitable. It was stated in the announcement that miners will be able to earn up to 5% annually on their balances,  and this is without taking into account expected increases in transaction volumes or the price of Waves. The total annual rewards earned by miners will increase by up to 5% in the beginning of 2018.

Moreover, korean exchange UPbit launched WAVES/KRW pair on November 17 and earlier in November it added WAVES/BTC pair.
