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.

RSK is an open source smart contract platform that is secured by the Bitcoin network. RSK is designed to add value and increase the functionality of the Bitcoin ecosystem by providing smart contracts that are compatible with the network's code and can be written in Solidity. RSK smart contracts are powered by the SmartBitcoin (RBTC) which is linked to Bitcoin. (1 RBTC=1 BTC)
RSK developed the RIF Token which is intended to enable users to access a range of DApps within their ecosystem. In September 2019, RSK purchased the Spanish social media platform Taringa with the goal of using the RIF token as an incentive to encourage users to share content.
