What makes Solana unique?

What makes Solana unique?

One of the essential innovations Solana brings to the table is the proof-of-history (PoH) consensus developed by Anatoly Yakovenko. 

Solana is known in the cryptocurrency space because of the incredibly short processing times the blockchain offers. Solana can process 50k transactions per second.

One of Solana’s main promises to customers is that they will not be surprised by increased fees and taxes. The protocol is designed in such a way as to have low transaction costs while still guaranteeing scalability and fast processing.

How is the Solana Network Secured?

How is the Solana Network Secured?

  • Solana relies on a unique combination of proof-of-history (PoH) and proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms.
  • Proof-of-history is the main component of the Solana protocol. PoH records successful operations and the time that has passed between them, thus ensuring the trustless nature of the blockchain.
  • The proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus is used as a monitoring tool for the PoH processes, and it validates each sequence of blocks produced by it.
  • The combination of two consensus mechanisms makes Solana a unique phenomenon in the blockchain industry.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
