Solana: The fastest-growing cryptocurrency


The cryptocurrency market has been booming over the past few years, and as more people become aware of it, more people are investing in it. Several reputable cryptocurrencies offer investors potential profits on the market, but Solana’s rapid growth and adoption by investors have shocked everyone. 

The potential cryptocurrency dubbed the “ethereum killer” is now living up to its reputation. Solana has been on a tear for the past several weeks, hitting new highs regular basis. 

The price of Solana is currently around US$152.87, with a worldwide market value of US$45 billion. Solana is seen as a game-changer in the blockchain sector by the SOL community. In terms of daily transactions, it has already surpassed ethereum. Because of the upcoming token burning, market analysts predict that Solana’s rise will continue.

How does Solana work?

Solana uses a mix of Proof of History (PoH) and Proof of Stake (PoS) to speed up transaction processing. Proof of History is a simple technique to validate transactions without having to communicate with nodes. Proof of Stake is a method for verifying transactions in which people stake their currency.

PoH operates on a simple formula: it allocates a “leader position” to a particular node, and any node holding the leader position must create the complete “proof of history” statement. After accepting the responsibility, the blockchain network’s leader node coordinates with other nodes to create a proof of history statement.

The leader node additionally pushes the current transaction’s execution, and it eventually publishes the transactions in their final nodes with “verifiers.” To “verify” transactions, verifiers repeat the process. Verifiers also make copies of the transactions, which they then disseminate.

There is one leader in each Solana network. The verifier node performs intelligently and has the same capabilities as a leader node; however, the verifier node can subsequently choose as a leader through “proof of stake” elections.

Compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchain networks, a combination of PoH and PoS works best for Solana, allowing it to process at a cheap cost.

The future of Solana

In the worldwide crypto market, Solana is ranked seventh. It is one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrencies, with an unheard-of growth rate. It is home to some of the most successful on-chain applications.

Another incentive to invest in this cryptocurrency is the enthusiasm around Defi and NFTs. Even while many crypto experts’ price projections haven’t stopped Solana from growing, the market, like Solana, is still unpredictable and prone to highs and lows. The future is uncertain.
