Solana is a blockchain platform that aims to increase user scalability through faster transaction settlement times. The Solana software includes a flexible infrastructure that allows developers to write and launch smart contracts using multiple programming languages. The SOL cryptocurrency plays a key role in maintaining and operating the Solana ecosystem and is used to execute smart contracts, send transactions, and incentivize actors that support the network.
SOL is among the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market cap and traded at $38.20 at press time. SOL has seen a growth of over 4000% in the last 12 months.
SRM is the cryptocurrency used by Serum, software running on Solana where a global network of users maintain an exchange where cryptocurrencies can be bought and sold by traders. Central to its design is a decentralized order book aimed to operate similarly to traditional exchanges by matching buyers and sellers. SRM holders can use their tokens to pay for fees on the exchange while also receiving up to a 50 percent discount on them.
