Summary of solana-labs/solana

The solana-labs/solana GitHub repository is where development work on Solana's blockchain protocol is publicly hosted.

Solana is a fast, secure, and censorship-resistant blockchain providing the open infrastructure required for global adoption. It uses a timekeeping system called "Proof of History" which allows for incredibly fast transaction throughput, outpacing even the Visa network.

Key features of Solana include:

  • Scalable: Solana’s architecture allows for a theoretical limit of 710,000 TPS on a standard gigabit network and 28.4 million TPS on 5G.
  • Low Fees: With Solana, transaction fees are context-based. You’re not paying for computation like on Ethereum – you’re paying for the bytes of data that your transaction occupies in the transaction processing pipeline.
  • Proof of History: This is Solana’s unique take on a Proof of Stake consensus model. With Proof of History, validators can process transactions before getting them confirmed by the rest of the network, drastically enhancing the speed of transaction processing.

The repository contains all the necessary codes and tools to start building or interacting with applications on Solana. It is written primarily in Rust and C.

It has a permissive MIT license, meaning that developers are free to use, modify, and distribute their own versions of the project.

Most importantly, the repository comes with a detailed set of documents designed to guide developers through the process of building on Solana. These documents cover everything from running a validating node, to sending transactions, to developing Solana Programs.
