What is Solana (SOL)?
Solana is an open-source blockchain project offering permissionless decentralized finance (DeFi) services. The Solana Foundation created the project in 2017, but it was launched in March 2020.
The protocol is designed to facilitate the creation of decentralized applications (DApps) and enhance scalability through its proof-of-history consensus and proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism.
Solana attracts both small-time traders and institutional investors due to its hybrid consensus model. It aims to provide DeFi access to all crypto buffs. Its hybrid protocol ensures quick validation for transactions and smart contract execution.
The SOL token trades on exchanges like Binance, FTX, Huobi Global, etc.
