Company Description

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.

Holo is a decentralized hosting provider that is built on top of Holochain. DApps can be set up and deployed with Holo hosting, as a decentralized alternative to Amazon Web Services, or other centralized hosting solutions.
Holochain is a protocol for creating decentralized Apps and is different from blockchain protocols in several ways. The main difference being that Holochain takes an agent-centric approach to their consensus mechanism, and has a different approach to validating value transfers.
The HOT token is used for paying for hosting services on Holo, and users can be paid for offering their computing resources.
