What is Solana?Solana is an open source project implementing a new, high-performance, permissionless blockchain. The Solana Foundation is based in Geneva, Switzerland and maintains the open source project.
Why Solana?At Solana, we are demonstrating that these same theoretical limits apply just as well to blockchain on an adversarial network. The key ingredient? Finding a way to share time when nodes cannot rely upon one another.
What is a Solana Cluster?A Solana cluster is a set of independently owned computers working together to verify the output of untrusted, user-submitted programs.
What are SOLs?A SOL is the name of Solana's native token, which can be passed to nodes in a Solana cluster in exchange for running an on-chain program or validating its output.
Supported WalletSeveral browser and mobile app based wallets support Solana.
ScalableGet big, quick. Solana is made to handle thousands of transactions per second, and fees for both developers and users remain less than $0.01.
Energy EfficientSolana’s proof of stake network and other innovations minimize its impact on the environment. Each Solana transaction uses about the same energy as a few Google searches.
