The transfers of cryptocurrencies in any network require a fee payment. However, this fee price can exceed the transfer amount and reach several tens of dollars. Waves.Exchange minimizes the users' fee cost for transferring their tokens by using a system of cryptocurrency bridges. What's more, BTC, ETH, USDT and many other cryptocurrencies can be transferred from one account to another through the Waves network, omitting any operations via the native network. To carry out such a transfer through the Waves network the Waves recipient address should be used, and here we go with it.
