Introduction to Solana (SOL)
By Adam Sharp on August 20, 2021
Solana (SOL) is an up-and-coming Ethereum competitor. It’s a proof-of-stake coin, and its network is extremely fast and powerful. The requirements to run a validator are extreme (it requires a powerful server with 128GB of RAM, which is a lot). Apparently the Solana network can support more than 1,000 transactions per second, which is impressive. I completely missed Solana’s massive run-up this year.
