Solana has built an exceptionally fast, secure, and scalable blockchain network for decentralized apps and companies. Solana is a new architecture for a high-performance blockchain. Up to 710,000 transactions per second on a 1 gigabit network without data partitioning.
Proof of History: Time encoded as data allows for simple and efficient proofs and protocols.
Performant System Architecture: Network is arranged for maximum throughput and high availability. Smart contracts bytecode based on Berkeley Packet Filter designed for fast execution.
Fast Proof of Replication: A fast streaming Proof of Replication designed for storing a large distributed ledger.
Consensus independent from transaction flow. Transactions flow through the network independent of consensus and are limited only by hardware.
