What Is Solana (SOL)?

The summer of 2021 was nicknamed the “summer of Solana.” An open-source project created in 2018 by Anatoly Yakovenko and Greg Fitzgerald, Solana focuses on providing decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions that speed up transactions while lowering associated costs. The Solana protocol aims to improve scalability through the introduction of a hybrid consensus mechanism — proof-of-history (PoH) with the underlying proof-of-stake (PoS). The hybrid model significantly decreases the validation times for transaction and smart contract execution. Solana can process about 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), compared to the Ethereum Network’s current 15 TPS. This translates into less congestion and lowers fees for users.
Solana’s native currency is SOL, which grants holders the right to vote on upgrades and enables them to engage in staking. More than any other cryptocurrency platform, Solana runs numerous decentralized crypto apps. Solana is fast, scalable and designed to bypass time-intensive validations by using historical records, making it both unique and useful.
