About Solana (SOL)
Solana is an independent Layer 1 blockchain created as a fast and efficient network with an underlying smart contract protocol. Since its launch in 2020, the Solana network has been dubbed a competitor to Ethereum, and even nicknamed ‘The Ethereum Killer’.
The network’s scalability, combined with its low fees and high speed, makes it a leading choice for many NFT-based decentralized applications (dApps), as well as decentralized finance (DeFi) and digital blockchain-based payment ecosystems.
Solana's native token, SOL, is primarily used for staking to support the validation process, and in transaction fees for peer-to-peer (P2P) payments. It best fulfils these functions through an unlimited token supply. However, the blockchain burns 50% of the SOL used in each transaction fee as part of the formula for maintaining its year-on-year inflationary rate.
The remaining 50% of the transaction fee is awarded to the validators of the transaction. Anyone holding enough SOL is able to become a network validator or a delegator to a validator and support the consensus process needed to run the independent blockchain. This mechanism is used to generate rewards for users who stake in support of the Solana blockchain.
