# Create Asset
You can create your own asset that can be traded in Waves.Exchange.
Open Waves.Exchange (opens new window) app, login to your account and navigate to the Wallet tab. Then click Create asset to go to the Asset generation page.
On this page you can specify asset name, description, number of decimals, total amount etc.
Asset creation costs 1 WAVES.
Fill in the boxes on the Asset generation page.
Name of your asset: Give your asset a name. Names are not unique, but the identifier (asset ID) is unique. Whenever you are looking for an asset, confirm that it is the right one by checking the asset ID. However, if our anti-spam system detects duplicate names, it will automatically mark such assets as spam. Before you continue, please read the conditions carefully at the bottom of the Asset generation page;
Note: The name of the created asset can not be shorter than 4 characters.
Description: Write a description for your asset. You can include website links which can be particularly useful considering the asset description as of now is unchangeable;
Total assets: Define the total supply of your asset. The total supply can either be fixed at the issuance or increased later by making the asset re-issuable;
Reissuable: Defines if the asset total supply can be increased later. If set to "Reissuable", the issuer can increase the supply at any time;
Note: If Reissuable is selected when the asset is created, it can be changed to Not reissuable at a later stage. For details, see Change Reissuable to Not Reissuble article.
Decimals: Specify how many decimals your asset will have. For example, if you specify 8 decimals, as in Bitcoin, your asset can be divided down to 0.00000001. If you specify 0, your asset can only be transacted in whole pieces (1, 3, 15);
Smart asset: A Smart Asset is an asset with an attached script that places conditions on every transaction made for the asset in question. The validation of a transaction by a Smart Asset’s script increases the transaction fee by 0.004 WAVES. For example, if a regular tx is made for a Smart Asset, the cost is 0.001 + 0.004 = 0.005 WAVES. If an exchange transaction is made, the cost is 0.003 + 0.004 = 0.007 WAVES.
Note: Make sure that you have at least 1 WAVES for asset creation fee.
Before creating new asset, carefully read the creation conditions. If necessary, change the name of the asset according to the conditions, then select the I understand... checkbox and click Generate.
In the following window double-check the entered data and if everything is correct click Send or click Go Back to make corrections.
You can find and sort your assets in the Portfolio of your Wallet.
