Solana(SOL) current price is $162.63 with a marketcap of $74.90 B. Its price is -5.42% down in last 24 hours.

Solana is a high-performance, secure, and decentralized blockchain platform based on proof-of-stake (POS) consensus. It is designed to provide a reliable layer 1 infrastructure for decentralized applications (Dapps) and smart contracts development in a much quicker and more economical way than what other blockchains are capable of.

The SOL token is the native cryptocurrency powering Solana's distributed network of nodes. Users can stake their tokens to run validator nodes on the network or delegate them to an existing validator node operator in order to receive block rewards from the POS consensus algorithm. These rewards incentivize users who help maintain the security of Solana’s network and ensure its continued growth.

Solana hosts It's own virtual machine (VM), an important feature which allows developers to build custom Dapps with fewer worries about compatibility issues with other blockchains due to its low latency speeds that are several times faster than those offered by other platforms. Its unique Global State Architecture also creates a system where all relevant transactions within Solana’s Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) are constantly updated, thereby enabling greater scalability while still maintaining data integrity without relying on third parties for trust management solutions -a common practice in traditional systems-.

Overall, Solana offers enterprise as well as individual users across various industries many advantages ranging from faster transaction speeds with lower processing fees over other leading blockchain networks such as Ethereum or Bitcoin; better scalability through its Global State Architecture; enhanced security due to it being fully distributed; improved energy efficiency thanks to Proof–of–Stake consensus algorithms; plus additional features that set it apart from others like fast finality time which reduces confirmation times drastically when compared against ETH 2 transactional updates making it a perfect fit for businesses looking for high-performance DLT solutions without compromising decentralization characteristics that public networks offer.
