Hi I present WAVES and how it works.
THE WAVES PLATFORM WALLET
The WAVES lite client has an offline storage option and users can run it on any device in the browser, so it is simple with no blockchain download, instant connections, and the ability to import and set up quickly on different devices.It is possible to import/recover an account on any device by using the unique seed from which each account address is generated, so accounts are accessible from any device. This is particularly useful in the case of hardware failure. In addition to the unique seed users encrypt access to their account with a password. Offline storage for the lite client and 2fa will be implemented in a later phase of development.

THE FULL NODE ON WAVES PLATFORM
If you are a lite client user only (with no blockchain download) you will be able also to receive rewards from the network by leasing your balance to a full node (which requires full blockchain download). The rewards from the full node’s activities will be shared between all users leasing their balance to it.
The minimum requirements to run a full node is to have 10k waves. The same incentives apply to everyone who has a balance above 0. The bigger the balance, the bigger the share from the reward pool a user receives.
Users with lower balances may choose to lease their balance to full node, which validates blocks more often than they would.
WavesfullNode provides a professional, powerfull and secure node hosted in Digital Ocean Datacenter 24/7.Waves Platform provides Leased Proof of Stake(LPOS), is one of the most important features in the platform, allowing anyone to receive interest on their holdings by leasing their mining power to a full node, while having tokens secured in the personal account all the time. If you are holding Waves tokens, you will be able to lend them and recieve rewards from all the transactions of WavesfullNode.
