Why Solana?

Currently, the Solana blockchain claims to achieve over 50,000 transactions per second with low fees. This is made possible through its scaling solution — a cryptographic clock called proof-of-history combined with the proof-of-stake consensus mechanism.

Using PoH, nodes in the Solana network can determine the time and order of events through an SHA-256 verifiable delay function stored in the ledger. In essence, each validator maintains its own clock and generates hashed cryptographic timestamps, thus eliminating the need to talk to other nodes to verify events. This makes the Solana blockchain highly efficient and primed for scalable growth.

The network's native token SOL is one of the best performers of 2021, which has made buying SOL a popular investment.
