What is Solana (SOL)?

Solana (SOL) is an open-source blockchain platform designed to host and build decentralised applications (dApps), execute smart contracts and power non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Solana’s native token, SOL, provides network security through staking. SOL can also be used as a means of transferring value on the network and acts as a governance token, meaning holders of the token can vote on decisions relating to the future of the platform. Like many coins, there is a limited supply of SOL created per year.

The Solana blockchain uses a hybrid of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) to validate transactions, this is known as the Proof-of-History (PoH) protocol. PoH speeds up the transaction process exponentially, minimising network congestion and keeping transaction fees low. The Solana network can process 65,000 transactions per second (TPS), which is far more than Bitcoins average of 5 TPS.

The increased speed of the PoH mechanism means that less computing power is required when validating transactions. This makes Solana far mor sustainable and energy-efficient compared to other networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum that use the PoW consensus mechanism.
