Overview of Solana Ecological Project

Solana proposes a new Proof of History consensus mechanism, which is different from the sharding or data partition processing technology used by Quarkchain and Zilliqa. Solana reaches a consensus with PoS equity to expand system throughput horizontally. And SOLANA has been able to process 140,000-170,000 TPS in the test network, which is currently the highest-performing public chain on the market.

Solana FTT by the founder and former co-founder of Alameda SBF founder of support, SBF influence in the encryption market of natural Needless to say, is the youngest of the encryption market rich, so powerful FTT transaction forefront of professional trading experience, Solana public chain It also inherits the genes of SBF and is currently the most prominent among many public chains in terms of transaction experience.

SOL (Solana public chain token) rose by about 95 times in 2021. With the recent explosion of the Solana ecosystem, the TVL of the Solana public chain has surpassed Terra and jumped into the third place on the public chain TVL list.


The Solana ecosystem is now very complete. There are currently 423 DAPPs in its ecosystem . Let’s take a look at the projects in the mainstream sectors of the Solana ecosystem.

Project overview

After playing DeFi for so long, I believe that everyone has a certain understanding of the main structure of the public chain ecology, that is, the essential sections of a complete public chain ecology:

DEX-Liquidity of Funds (UNI)

Borrowing-Capital Efficiency (AAVE)

Stable currency-stable savings, low slippage exchange (Curve)

Machine gun pool-automatic reinvestment, Farm income growth rate, strategic agreement (YFI)

Launchpad-IDO, new project launch booster

Derivatives-futures, contracts, securities, synthetic assets (Synthetix)

NFT Marketplace-NFT trading market (Opensea)

NFT GameFi-NFT game category

For these major tracks, filter by the current TVL (DeFillama data) rankings to see what are the corresponding mainstream projects on Solana.

The above is an overview of the current mainstream projects on Solana. On the whole, Solana is a public chain that focuses on transactions. The ultra-high TPS is very suitable for the development of various transaction products in the DeFi market. The overall design of the current ecological project looks , The degree of innovation is low, and most of the models are copied from mainstream projects on the ETH chain. However, with the continuous improvement of the public chain ecology, the Lego effect of DeFi can be combated. I believe that more innovative protocols will appear, let us Let’s wait and see.
