Solana Blockchain vs Bytecent
What problem does this service solve?
|Solana allows developers to create DApps with faster performance by separating the consensus process from the recording of transactions.||Bytecent allows merchants to create blockchain-based customer rewards programs that are more flexible and transparent.|
The Solana blockchain uses an innovative Proof of History mechanism to confirm transactions that are recorded on the network. Solana is designed to separate the consensus process from the flow of transactions. This is done with a recursive, verifiable delay function that hashes incoming transactions, and recording information as a function of time. Every node on the Solana blockchain is assigned a cryptographic clock that enables the network to determine the time and ordering of transactions, without having to wait for consensus from other nodes. By separating the process of transaction verification from their recording, a higher throughput is achieved without sacrificing network security.
Bytecent is developing a decentralized rewards network powered by blockchain. Bytecent allows merchants to create customer loyalty programs that are cross-site and cross-platform compatible. Consumers are not restricted to using their rewards with just one merchant, and can redeem them anywhere Bytecent is accepted. In addition to secure transactions and portability, Bytecent never expire and there are no limitations on how many Bytecent you can accumulate or spend. BYC can be converted to Bitcoin, cash, and gift cards. Bytecent uses a variation of Proof-of-Work (PoW) for consensus that requires miners to manually attend to their computers and is called Proof-of-Miner (PoM). It's designed to prevent the use of advanced and autonomous mining hardware. Avanquest Software, a leading developer of consumer software, has implemented Bytecent for their rewards program.
