Solana Review: High-Speed Layer 1 Blockchain

A centralized database on a standard gigabit network can execute 710,000 transactions per second when transactions are no more than 176 bytes size on average. Without compromising decentralization, it is challenging for a blockchain to have such a high-speed transaction capacity. Solana has accomplished an impressive transaction per second capacity without compromising decentralization much. It is an open-source project that is a new permissionless and high-performance blockchain. The Solana Foundation manages the open-source project, situated in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the high-speed layer one blockchain, with a max capacity of 65,000 transactions per second. It has a transaction finality of around 13 seconds. How does Solana work? Proof of Stake (PoS) and Proof of History (PoH) are used by Solana Network to process its transactions efficiently with high speed. PoH is a simple method for validating all the transactions without communicating with other nodes. PoS is also used for validating transactions, for this, you have to stake your token. PoH is based on a simple method. It assigns a leader position randomly to a particular node after every new block creation. Any node which is the leader node must generate the whole proof of history statement. After being given the responsibility, the leader node coordinates with other nodes to construct a proof of history statement. The leader node also pushes the currently executed ...
