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.
The DAPP Network is a development focused network that aims to promote the adoption of decentralized applications (DApps). The DAPP Network is designed to incentivize the creation of development tools to solve the technical limitations of developing DApps. The network is powered by the DAPP token.
