A truly decentralised blockchain built from Core components, utilising the Delegated Proof of Stake consensus with 53 delegates.
By combining innovative protocol design with accessible & extensible software, Solar allows for maximum developer productivity.
We prioritise builders and doers by building blockchain software that balances power and ease of use.
Unlike many traditional blockchains, Solar utilises the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) Consensus powered by Solar Core.
This makes the Solar Blockchain sustainable, efficient and fully decentralised without the known issues from traditional Proof of Work (PoW) blockchains such as being energy intensive or open to centralised attack vectors.
The Solar Blockchain has 53 delegates also known as node operators. These delegates are selected by the voters, based on their wallet weight.
The easiest way to vote for a delegate is by downloading the Solar wallet and to vote for one or multiple delegates of your liking.
The main purpose of a delegate is to contribute to the blockchain network by providing security enhancements, code updates, marketing or brand development and many other contributions. Delegates receive rewards from blocks produced on the blockchain network and they usually share these rewards with their voters.
