Waves Platform, the custom blockchain for asset/token generation and trading, and Primalbase have today announced enhancements in their partnership which will see the Waves team set up a presence in Amsterdam.
Primalbase is a next-generation community-based ecosystem where participants can share, sell or rent out high-quality office spaces using Ethereum and Waves-based digital tokens. Looking at establishing strategic global outposts, Waves will now have a permanent presence in Amsterdam as well as Moscow, thanks to its partnership with Primalbase.
A Berlin office has already been opened as of this week and Waves will shortly be establishing a team there too, followed by a series of further Primalbase locations in the coming months including:
• London (February 2018)
• Singapore (Q1 2018)
• New York (Q2 2018)
Just last week Waves launched its flagship Client 1.0 at Primalbase’s Amsterdam office. Ralph Manheim, the company’s COO, gave a presentation at the event. As their infrastructure and business partner, Waves have a long-standing relationship with Primalbase. One of the Waves community’s best-known initiatives, the WavesNode project run by Jarno Hogeweg, is also located in the Amsterdam base and will continue to represent the platform in the Netherlands.
The relationship will also provide the opportunity for Waves to establish new bases in other key business/blockchain hubs around the world over the coming year and beyond, as it launches new technology and seeks to consolidate its services.
Distributed office space for the tech industry
Primalbase was one of Waves’ many success stories of 2017. The company’s crowd sale ended after just one day, raising over 3,000 BTC for its distributed tech workplace initiative. Co-working or sharing office space is becoming an increasingly popular way to work, as freelancers — particular millennials in the tech industry — look for flexible, on-demand space to do their jobs, without the restrictions or overheads of traditional companies. Primalbase serves this growing need by providing hubs in which tech professionals can gather, work and share ideas. Rather than taking a conventional approach to paying for this service, Primalbase uses a token system: one PBT gives the holder access to any of the company’s shared office spaces around the world. If it is no longer needed, the token can be sold on to someone else on the secondary market.
