Solana tagged as “Ethereum Killer.”
Solana happens to be a public blockchain network that has an ecosystem of cryptocurrency. Crypto developers and technicians went on to develop the blockchain at Solana Labs. The major features of the block chain are providing quick transactions, robust security algorithms and processing transactions at less fee.
Since, the emergence of cryptocurrencies, bitcoin and Ethereum have consistently dominated the market. While bitcoin is way ahead in terms of value from Ethereum, Ethereum was able to capture a large market in the crypto sphere. But, after the emergence of Solana, the position of Ethereum is considered to be at stake. Many of the problems that Ethereum users face are efficiently solved by Solana. Considering the fact that Solana is a both POS and POW blockchain and more eco-friendly, it has been given the tag as the “Ethereum Killer.”
