Solana's performance is beyond imagination! Can it defeat Ethereum and become the new king in the cryptocurrency world? 👑 An intense battle is about to begin! (Part 1)

Ethereum vs Solana
Ethereum vs Solana

In 2024, Solana has shown strong performance and growth potential and is regarded as one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies this year. It was even called "the next big thing in cryptocurrencies" by Bloomberg. It has now become a popular competitor to Ethereum, and investors have quite high expectations for Solana, mainly for the following reasons:

  1. Outperforming: Despite its recent price decline, overall Solana's price is up 75% year over year, with a total return of 776% for the year. This strong performance has investors full of expectations for Solana.

  2. High expectations: Solana has become a popular competitor to Ethereum, and many are wondering whether 2024 will be Solana’s breakout year. Although still lagging behind Ethereum in terms of market capitalization, Solana has emerged as one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies this year. This high level of expectation shows that Solana has huge potential.

Ethereum experienced a year-long rebound in 2023, and some analysts predict that it may reach a price of $5,000 in 2024, and may even reach $8,000 in 2026. Upgrades to Ethereum such as “Protodanksharding” may further contribute to its future success. Both Ethereum and Solana have the potential to breakout, but there are differences in their performance and strengths.

What are the similarities and differences between Ethereum and Solana, especially in terms of founders and funding?

In terms of founders, Ethereum was co-founded by eight founders including Vitalik Buterin, which also includes well-known figures such as Gavin Wood and Charles Hoskinson. They partnered with ConsenSys to build Ethereum’s infrastructure, and the Ethereum Foundation coordinates the project’s ongoing development. Ethereum raised approximately $18 million in an ICO in 2014, and the mainnet was launched in 2015. Solana was founded by former Qual engineer Anatoli Yakovenko and created by Solana Labs. The Solana Foundation coordinates Solana’s continued development and raised approximately $25 million in funding through various ICOs in 2018, 2019, and 2020, with Solana raising an additional $314 million in 2021. Solana’s mainnet was launched in 2020. So both Ethereum and Solana are backed by great teams in terms of founders and funds raised. Ethereum has a founding team composed of several well-known figures and successfully raised a large amount of funds through ICO in its early stages. Although Solana was founded by a single founder, it successfully raised significant funding through several ICO rounds and is backed by venture capital.

What are the differences between Ethereum and Solana in terms of technical aspects, such as transaction speed and degree of decentralization?

In terms of transaction speed, Solana is described in the document as a high-speed, low-cost blockchain platform. It uses a consensus mechanism called Proof of History, which enables it to achieve faster transaction processing speeds. In contrast, Ethereum used a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism before the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade, and the Ethereum network was prone to transaction congestion during periods of peak demand. However, the full implementation of Ethereum 2.0 has not yet been completed, and its scalability and transaction speed advantages have not yet been fully realized.

Regarding the degree of decentralization, the document does not provide a direct comparison between Solana and Ethereum. Ethereum is widely considered the ancestor of smart contracts and decentralized applications. However, Solana is also described as a scalable and fast alternative whose unique value lies in facilitating transactions on the Solana network. Both platforms are influential blockchain technologies in the field of decentralized applications and cryptocurrencies.

All in all, based on the provided snippets of documents, Solana has the advantage in terms of transaction speed, while Ethereum has higher visibility in the decentralization space. However, more information and comparisons are needed to fully understand the technical differences between these two blockchain platforms.

What is the supply and distribution of Ethereum? Is there a deflationary mechanism?

Ethereum’s native cryptocurrency is Ethereum (ETH). Ethereum is the most commonly used cryptocurrency on the Ethereum network for payment transactions and staking. The current supply of Ethereum is determined based on the amount of Ether staked by users, so the supply changes based on market demand. Currently, the number of ether coins in circulation on the Ethereum network is approximately 120,254,303.

Ethereum is distributed through mining and staking to generate new Ethereum coins. Mining is the process of validating transactions and creating new blocks through competition for computing resources. Staking is the process of holding and locking a certain amount of Ether to secure the network and validate transactions. Specifically, Ethereum’s Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism involves validators who hold and lock a certain amount of ether to create new blocks. The current minimum stake to become an Ethereum validator is 32 ETH.

As for the deflation mechanism, the Ethereum network currently does not have a clear deflation strategy. However, since supply changes depending on user staking demand, the supply of Ethereum may decrease under certain circumstances. However, the inflation rate of Ethereum is relatively high because new Ethereum is constantly generated through mining and staking. It should be noted that future Ethereum 2.0 versions may introduce more economic parameters, including adjustments to the inflation rate and possible deflation mechanisms, to further change the supply and distribution of Ethereum.

What is the supply and distribution of Solana?

Solana's native cryptocurrency is SOL. The total supply of SOL is 49 billion, of which approximately 20% is allocated to initial token holders and the other 80% is generated through Solana's Proof-of-History (PoH) consensus mechanism. Specifically, PoH will generate approximately 75 million SOLs per year, gradually increasing to 83.1 million SOLs, and then maintaining this number.

Solana is distributed as follows:

  • Initial token holders hold 20% of SOL.

  • 80% of SOL is generated through PoH, of which the founding team will hold approximately 7.25% of SOL.

  • The SOL generated by PoH will be distributed as follows: 40% to miners, 30% to validators, and 30% to the ecosystem fund.
