Solana is a public blockchain platform with smart contract functionality. Earlier, it was proposed in a white paper by Anatoly Yakovenko, which describes a technique called "proof of history." Yakovenko claimed this would be significantly faster than existing blockchains. Today, Solana is recognized as one of the fastest-growing ecosystems in the world and mostly in crypto, with thousands of projects spanning Defi, NFTs, Web3, Payments, DAOS, and many more. The platform is a worldwide distributed home for developers, token holders, validators, and other members supporting the protocol. The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
The platform ensures control between ecosystem projects by maintaining a single global state as the network scales. It is a crypto computing platform that strives for fast transaction speeds while maintaining decentralization. The platform incorporated innovative features which allow it to operate up to 2,108 transactions per second, which keeps increasing day by day, and is faster than the world's most performant blockchain.
The company has developed decentralized, web3 games (Saga), web2 speeds, and projects for NFTs (Solanart) that let users buy, sell, and trade NFTs at scale with low fees and low latency networks. DAOS: Direct and Simple Governance. The platform offers users the opportunity to examine projects created by the company, which they can browse by category and build their self-made projects. Forte, a major investor, has invested over $725 million in the company. The company's blockchain enables users to scale and transact on the blockchain. In return, they are rewarded with SQL tokens and can also earn tokens by participating in governance or even offering faster nodes for other buyers.
