Waves.Exchange is an application based on the Waves blockchain that allows users to trade cryptocurrency, invest in DeFi products, earn passive income, and transfer cryptocurrency. Also., Waves.Exchange users can buy cryptocurrency via a bank card and create assets.
Using Waves.Exchange, you navigate through the main and additional menus. The main menu - at the top of each tab - is divided into four sections: "Buy Crypto", "Trading", "Investments", "Wallet". An additional menu appears when you hover the cursor over an item on the main menu. Let's take a closer look at each item of the main menu.
The "Wallet" section includes several tabs: "Assets", "Deposit & Withdrawal Transactions", "Internal Transactions", "Create Asset".
The "Assets" tab provides all the necessary information about the assets (name, balance, and more). When you click on any asset line, you can see detailed information about it (description, release date, the total amount of the asset, and so on). The "Assets" tab allows you to sort the displayed assets by 6 filters:
All - displays assets from the Gateway, DeFi, WA Verified;
Gateway - displays assets that can be transferred to or from another blockchain;
DeFi - displays assets that are used in investment products released in the Waves blockchain (LP Staking, Algorithmic Trading, Lambo Investments, and others);
WA Verified - displays assets that have passed validation according to the Waves Association algorithms;
My Issued Assets - displays the assets you released;
Unverified - displays assets that do not have the status of Gateway, DeFi, or WA Verified.
From the "Assets" tab, you can navigate to the cryptocurrency deposit/withdrawal interface by clicking on the “Deposit & Withdrawal” button in the top right corner.
The "Deposit & Withdrawal Transactions" tab contains information about all incoming and outgoing transactions from/to the other blockchains. To see detailed information about a transaction (recipient and sender addresses, TX ID, amount, etc.), just click on the line of the required transaction.
The "Internal Transactions" tab contains information about all incoming and outgoing transactions of your account: exchanges, transfers within the Waves blockchain, investing in DeFi products, asset creation, etc.
In the “Create Asset” tab, the user is prompted to fill out a form to create his own asset. To create the asset, you just need to specify the name, quantity, description and number of decimal places. You can find a detailed guide on creating an asset in the article Asset/NFT creation.
Waves.Exchange users can invest cryptocurrency in DeFi products and receive passive income. When you hover over Investments, 5 submenu items will appear - "Liquidity pools", "Lambo Investments", "LP Staking", "Neutrino Staking", "Other Products".
"Liquidity pools" are an investment product that allows users to receive passive income by providing liquidity (tokens) to a pool for AMM (Automated Market Making). A liquidity pool is a smart contract with a pair of tokens on its balance (for example, USDT / USDN), that provides liquidity for Waves Exchange decentralized trading. The liquidity pools facilitate and speed up the trading process by means of AMM (Automated Market Making). The AMM algorithm automatically fills traders' orders by using pools liquidity. AMM controls the proportion of tokens in each pool depending on the price change. If you are interested in investing in Liquidity pools, I recommend you read the detailed instructions - Liquidity pools

Staking Waves - earns users passive income in Waves. Waves staking does not imply the transfer of Waves themselves, but only the rights to use them for mining nodes (Waves do not leave the owner's account). Nodes receive mining rewards and share rewards with those who "gave" them Waves. The Waves staking process is described in detail in the article Staking WAVES.
Neutrino pools - users can invest USDN in Neutrino pools and receive a reward for this in the pool assets (EURN, JPYN, CNYN, TRYN, and others). Check out the article to learn more about investing in Neutrino Pools - Neutrino Pools.
