What is Solana (SOL)?

Solana is a third-generation blockchain, just like Cardano (ADA) or Polkadot (DOT), which is introducing different operating methods than those used by blockchains like Bitcoin or Ethereum.

Designed to facilitate the creation of decentralized applications (DApps), it proposes to achieve high scalability by introducing Proof-of-History (PoH) consensus combined with a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus layer in its blockchain. It can reach up to 50,000 low-cost transactions per second, and allows the creation of smart contracts.
