What is Solana?
Solana was founded in 2017 when Anatoly Yakovenko published a whitepaper draft detailing a new concept called Proof of History (PoH). Anatoly believed that with this new technique, he could automate the transaction ordering process for blockchains, in order to allow a higher scalability.
Later on, Anatoly teamed up with Greg Fitzgerald to build a single blockchain network that uses POH.
