Solana is a decentralized blockchain built to enable scalable, user-friendly apps for the world. Solana ensures composability between ecosystem projects by maintaining a single global state as the network scales. With Solana, never deal with fragmented Layer 2 systems or sharded chains. Solana’s scalability ensures transactions remain less than $0.01 for both developers and users. Solana is all about speed, with 400 millisecond block times. And as hardware gets faster, so does the network. Not only is Solana ultra-fast and low cost, it is censorship resistant. The Solana network is spread over thousands of independent nodes.
