What is Solana?

TLDR:

  • Investors are looking to buy Solana due to the network’s impressive growth in the NFT space, expanding ecosystem, and technological innovation.
  • Solana’s high throughput and low fees make it ideal for diverse projects. Its native token SOL is used on the network.
  • Here's how to buy Solana easily with CoinJar.

Buy Solana

Looking to buy Solana (SOL)? Solana is a fast and efficient blockchain platform that is one of the fastest in the world. It is a competitor to Ethereum, Polkadot, and Cardano.

Why buy SOL?

Solana is mainly known for its fast and efficient transactions and low fees. It also has cross-chain compatibility. This means that Solana seamlessly integrates with other blockchain networks, making it easier to build and use dApps (apps built on blockchains) that work across multiple platforms.

Solana is also energy-efficient, which makes it more sustainable and eco-friendlier than proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains, like Bitcoin.

It uses a unique consensus mechanism called proof-of-history (PoH), which records the passage of time between events on the blockchain using hashed timestamps.

Solana and culture

Solana is useful because it offers a high-performance and low-cost solution for dApps and digital currencies. It supports a wide range of dApps and projects, such as Serum, a decentralized exchange; Audius, a music streaming platform; and Star Atlas, a metaverse game.

Solana launched Degenerate Ape Academy, which sold a collection of pictures of cartoon apes.

10,000 of them sold in the first 10 minutes, which then drove the SOL token higher as people needed the cryptocurrency to buy the cartoon apes.

There is also a community of digital artists and collectors who create and trade NFTs on various marketplaces on Solana. For example, SolSea is a curated NFT marketplace that features exclusive drops from known artists.

By the way, Solana is the name of a small Southern Californian coastal city, which the founder of the blockchain platform, Anatoly Yakovenko took a shine to.

SOL the cryptocurrency of Solana

SOL is the native cryptocurrency of the Solana network. It is used to pay for things on the Solana network, and it can be staked (which means that people can lock it up for a period of time on the network and earn more SOL as a return. (There are risks with staking, however, so do your research.)

SOL launched with a price of $0.95. It reached an all-time high (ATH) in November of 2021, with a price of $260.

But at the time of writing, SOL is worth $99.40 (April 2024). However if you bought SOL in the early days, and HODLed (Held On for Dear Life) and kept it, then you’d still be sitting pretty today.
