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.Hyperion's goal is to create a decentralized marketplace for map data that will be generated by users.

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.

Hyperion is developing a decentralized mapping platform that will ensure user privacy and provide map services for DApps. The platform will give users incentives to contribute location data and will have a community governance model. The Hyperion network is powered by the Ethereum-based HYN token.
