Solana is an open-source blockchain project that brings forth advanced decentralized solutions. The protocol empowers decentralized app creation based on Solana blockchain. The project functions with the utilization of a newly introduced proof of history (PoH) consensus mechanism, in addition to a traditionally used proof of work (PoW) consensus.
One of the main strengths of the Solana project is the low processing time of transactions on the blockchain. According to the project's CMC page, Solana offers low fees and swift processing time even in periods of high network congestion.
