What is Solana?

Solana is a cryptocurrency that is based on a blockchain made using Web3 with the key idea of decentralization. It uses the proof of stake and proof of history methods to validate the transactions in this cryptocurrency, and it is extremely efficient compared to older methods as each node remembers time and calculates it accurately.

Currently, it has 1,749 validator nodes and will expand over time. Sloana was launched in 2017 and is an open-source project based in Geneva. Currently, it is seen as a competitor for Etherium and other blockchain platforms.

Solana Fees 

All of the blockchain networks use some form of fee to maintain the nodes security and stability; likewise, Solana uses two types of fee: transaction fees and Prioritization fees. 

Transactions Fees:

It is a fee to process instructions on that network. Once that instruction has been executed, a transaction fee is levied. This fee is essential because it gives the validator node enough resources to improve the CPU/GPU process and reduce network spam.

Some of the transaction fees are destroyed with burnt fees to reduce the supply and maintain inflationary stability. This fee is calculated using the static base fee per signature and computation measure used to evaluate the cost a particular transaction has and is measured in compute units. 

Prioritization Fees: 

The prioritization fees are used to execute the transaction in a faster manner. And for this, the Fee is calculated by multiplying the maximum number of compute units by the compute unit price.
