Some crypto companies gain mainstream adoption through partnerships, partnerships and deals with big brands, while others operate to their own heartbeat, regardless of whether a big label is affiliated with them.
Solana, a layer 1 blockchain launched in 2020, is one of the largest chains developers are building. Excluding stablecoins, Solana is the eighth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization at approximately $7.6 billion, according to CoinMarketCap data.
“Solana has the potential to be the Apple of cryptocurrencies,” says co-founder Large gokar told TechCrunch+. For years, Apple has focused on two things: user experience and performance, he said. “It reminds me of Apple. He’s been working on touchscreen delays for nearly a decade to enable the launch of the iPhone, and it just felt like magic.”
“To get the iPhone, the App Store and the app ecosystem to what it is today, there was a lot to build on that platform,” Gokal added. “But it all started with a relentless focus on simple interactions that needed to work perfectly.”
And that’s where Solana’s core engineering and ecosystem focus, he said. It’s important to build a network that is “a whole new financial internet, but still feels like a regular internet.”
It’s also worth mentioning that Solana may be looking to compete with Apple through its own Web3-focused Android smartphone Saga, which opened to the public in April (I’m testing one I was able to). Solana said Saga was launched to make cryptocurrency products and services more accessible to users by offering them through the phone instead of the computer, which is the traditional way to access cryptocurrency platforms and applications. said.
The network is constantly working to keep it fresh and competitive. “The core paper is [focused on] New business, new project, independent developer,” said Gokal. “We are still in an ecosystem and community that is optimistic about what two developers in the garage can do.”
