About Solana (SOL)
Solana is a high throughput blockchain based on the Proof of History (PoH) and Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus. Built by a team of networking engineers, Solana aims to become the blockchain infrastucture for modern internet applications. Solana's native currency is SOL, which can be used to pay for transaction fees and staking in order to support the network.
Founding Team Behind Solana
Solana was founded by 4 co-founders, led by Anatoly Yakovenko. Anatoly Yakovenko wrote and published a whitepaper on the concept of Proof of History in November 2017. Proof of History is a concept introduced to keep time between computers in a network in sync which forms the basis of scaling the number of transactions.
Greg Fitzgerald, whom used to be Anatoly's colleague at Qualcomm participated in the project by suggesting and writing the Proof of History codebase in Rust, a popular opens source programming language. Stephen Akridge and Raj Gokal joined the project shortly later and together the 4 individuals incorporated the new blockchain network called Solana in 2018.
