Crypto Asset Statement

What is Solana (SOL)?

Solana is a platform for building blockchain-based products and services. Its unique consensus mechanism, known as ‘proof-of-history’, enables high transaction speed and low settlement times. The web-scale blockchain currently supports 50,000 TPS (Transactions per second) and 400ms Block Times. It is also a governance token, permitting holders to vote on changes to the protocol. SOL is the native token of Solana. The SOL cryptocurrency is involved in transaction processing, and provided as a reward to validators who help maintain the network. You can buy and sell SOL for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade SOL for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade SOL to CAD based on the SOL price.
