What Is Solana (SOL)? 

Solana is a functional open-source project that facilitates fast transactions and provides a platform for running decentralized apps. The network started as a white paper – Solana Labs – in 2017 and launched its network three years later. Today, Solana is the 9th-ranked cryptocurrency by market cap. 

Solana combines the well-known Proof of Stake with Proof of History to facilitate a fast Defi ecosystem without sacrificing scalability. It also allows developers to create and execute smart contracts on its network. 

A Brief History About Solana 

Network Engineer Anatoly Yakovenko conceived the idea of Solana. He started as an engineer at Qualcomm, where he served as a senior engineer. In 2015, he was a software engineer at Dropbox. 

He started working on Solana in 2017. He particularly published a whitepaper in November of the same year. The whitepaper explained how Bitcoin and Ethereum need ample time to reach a consensus on transactions. The time delay slows transactions and cripples network scalability. To that effect, he suggested a timekeeping consensus mechanism called Proof of History. 

The PoH is a distributed system that records historical events to denote time passage, automating transaction confirmation and making the network faster. Thus, improving the overall network.

In 2018, Yakovenko linked up with former Qualcomm colleague Greg Fitzgerald to develop a Solana prototype. Later, both teamed up with five other engineers to build and launch the project. In May 2020, Solana went live. 

How Do Solana Work 

Blockchain systems like Ethereum operate with a central time-stamping method? The timestamp tags a specific transaction occurring at a particular time. To confirm a transaction, Ethereum has to broadcast timestamps amongst its validators, which slows transaction speed. 

But Solana employs a different approach. It uses a decentralized clock called PoH. PoH includes Verifiable Delay Functions that allow each validator to generate his time locally. Thus, nodes don't have to wait for timestamps from a central source. 

It maintains the regular Proof of Stake for validation, where validators stake their tokens to confirm transactions. The network facilitates both direct and delegated staking. Thus, users can stake their SOL to validate transactions. Or administer it to an active validator.

PoH and PoS combinations make Solana Network far more efficient and suited to blockchain scalability demands. It can process up to 700,000 transactions per second which is a big upgrade on Ethereum's 15 per second. 

Solana also provides a platform for building applications with the help of Blockchains. These apps are similar to regular apps – Facebook and Dropbox. However, they are built on a decentralized ecosystem, thus granting more user power.

What Makes Solana Unique 

By combining with PoS, Solana uses Proof of Stake to solve the existing slow validation processing. Thus, improving the overall network efficiency. Solana’s lightning-fast transactions gave it the title 'Visa of Crypto.' 

The high transaction speed means the network is also ripe for individual and enterprise usage. Companies that need to process large data can confirm their transactions in seconds. Even with these, Solana charges lower transaction fees compared to Ethereum. 

Solana's utility is evident with the network launch of successful smart contracts. Solana's price skyrocketed with emerging crypto applications on the network. For instance, the Degenerate Ape NFT collection was launched and minted in mid-2021. By September 9, 2021, SOL was at an all-time high of $216. 

Since then, more institutions have flooded the network — mainly gaming, Defi, and NFTs platforms. Today, Solana Blockchain has over 350 listed projects, with 11 being Defi platforms. It's also supported by an experienced core of Anatoly Yakovenko and Greg Fitzgerald. 

Fairly, many have touted Solana as the main blockchain rival to Ethereum and break the latter's smart contracts monopoly. But multiple outages from DDOS attacks have crippled more development of the cryptocurrency. Plus, critics faulted the network for favoring capital investors with unfair tokenomics. 

Moreso, Ethereum has solved its scalability issues with a recent suite of clever technologies. It includes Layer 2 projects on Ethereum. And the recent launch of ETH 2.0, which processes 20,000+ transactions. With ETH more suited to scalability, Solana's competitive advantage is eliminated. 

SOL Token And Tokenomics  

Solana's native cryptocurrency is SOL. SOL provides crypto solutions, including

  • Transaction Fees: Users and smart contract operators can pay transaction fees with SOL tokens. 
  • Staking: Holders can stake their tokens to validate transactions or administer them to an active validator on the network. In return, they earn some tokens known as inflation rewards. 

Solana is an inflationary cryptocurrency with no hard cap. New SOL coins are issued to PoS validators for confirming transactions. Thus, increasing the number of SOLs in circulation over time. Solana started at an annual inflation rate of 8%, designed to decrease by 15% yearly. The inflation rate becomes fixed once it reaches 1.5%. 

All the inflationary rewards are shared among the delegated stake accounts and validators. 

Solana started an initial seed sale in 2018, where investors got SOL tokens for their investment. The investment included five different funding rounds. In 2020, Solana raised another money through a strategic sale and a Coin list-hosted public auction.

The Initial token distribution of SOL was as follows. 

  • Seed Round investors: 15.86%
  • Founding Sale Investors: 2.63
  • Validator Sale Investors: 5.07%
  • Strategic Sale Investors: 1.84%
  • Public Auction Sale Investors: 1.6%
  • Team Members: 12.5%
  • Solana Foundation: 12.5%
  • Community reserve fund (managed by the Solana Foundation): 38%

SOL, after launch in March 2020, SOL price started at around $0.5. It never reached the $5 mark for the rest of 2020, with its highest price being $4+ in August 2020. 

The 2021 crypto bull run, NFT hype, and increasing fame of Defi gave Solana wide traction. It quickly became one of the most valuable assets to investors. In May 2021, It traded around $55, dipping for some time before going on another price rally. 

An SOL token was $216 in September 2021. It cost an all-time high price of $258.93 in November.
