Solana is basically an open-source blockchain that is compatible with smart contracts such as NFTs and other decentralized applications. At present, it is operated by the Solana foundation based in Geneva. Solana allows fast transactions with much lower transaction charges as compared to its competitor Ethereum.
The open-source blockchain was created by Raj Gokal and Anatoly Yokovenko in the year 2017. Raj Gokal is now serving as the chief operating officer of Solana meanwhile, Anatoly Yokovenko is the lab CEO of Solana. The main motive to create the Solana blockchain was to reduce the workload and increase productivity in order to meet the demand at the global level.
Due to its fast and low-cost transactions, Solana is now one of the most preferred blockchains. With the help of Solana, over 65,000 transactions can be achieved within a second.
