What is Solana? 4 Reasons to Try SOL Today

What is Solana? 4 Reasons to Try SOL Today

A few weeks ago, NC Wallet added Solana (SOL) to its list of supported networks. Here are a few reasons why Solana could become your next go-to asset.

Reason 1. Speed

Solana can handle up to 65,500 transactions per second (and possibly even more!). This metric – also referred to as TPS – indicates how quickly a network is able to execute transactions. Solana is the ultimate winner when compared to most other networks. For instance, Bitcoin manages 7 transactions per second, while Ethereum – Solana’s main competitor – is currently limited to just 10-12 TPS. What’s more, Solana is ahead of the largest centralised payment systems like Visa and Mastercard that can process 24,000 and 5,000 TPS, respectively. The difference is quite outstanding!

Reason 2. Affordable transaction fees

At the time of writing, the average fee for a transaction on the Solana network is around 0.000010456 SOL ($0.000203). This level of network affordability is achieved due to several reasons:

Solana’s infrastructure allows for processing transactions in parallel, reducing the overall waiting time and required costs;

The Proof-of-History consensus mechanism, implemented by Solana, uses a cryptographic clock that timestamps transactions, guaranteeing decentralisation and security;

Last but not least, Solana can handle large amounts of transactions, thanks to its top-notch scaling capabilities.

Besides, Solana’s gas fee for minting an NFT remains below $0.01, as opposed to the minimum of $10 on Ethereum. Moreover, creating an NFT on Solana typically requires between $0.04 and $0.12, whereas for an Ethereum-based NFT, you would have to pay from $50 to $150.

Reason 3. Promising NFT market possibilities

Speaking about NFTs, Solana-based NFTs are currently the second-largest market after surpassing a billion dollars in total non-fungible token sales. Solana has a distinct ecosystem of NFT investors and developers, established in 2021. With Solana NFTs, users can participate in staking or play-to-earn activities and much more.

Reason 4. Commission-free payments with NC Wallet
