SOLANA ‑ SOL

SOL is the blockchain Solana’s native token. Offering record speed and transaction cost, this cryptocurrency is shaping up to be one of the phenomena of 2021. Founded by a former Qualcomm and Dropbox engineer, this platform is now a serious competitor to Ethereum and Cardano in the development of decentralised finance applications, and is even overtaking Ethereum in the booming non‑fungible token (NFT) sector.

In addition, Solana is based on a combination of two validation techniques: Proof of Stake and Proof of History, which consume very little electricity, unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, which require considerable processing power to validate transactions.

Prior to opening an account with Swissquote, consider your level of experience, investment objectives, assets, income and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not speculate, invest or hedge with capital you cannot afford to lose, that is borrowed or urgently needed or necessary for personal or family subsistence. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
