What we're about
Solana is a scalable, high-throughput public blockchain (achieves 710,000 tx/s with off-the-shelf hardware and no sharding). The project was incubated at 500 Startups and is lead by a high performance team (former Qualcomm, CERN, Google, and Stellar/Lightyear). Solana intents to be the go-to network for developers who want to build scalable DApps of any kind (as we enable you to write smart contracts in almost any language that is LLVM compatible - Rust, C++, C, Java, etc). You don't need to learn Solidity.
