“What we’re going to do is actually fully support the Solana blockchain which is quite a much more complicated blockchain versus Ethereum EVM chains, and with that, you can basically get more Solana tokens, (including) gaming tokens and maybe even DeFi (decentralized finance) tokens.”

He also expressed excitement about providing support for Solana on the platform, emphasizing that Solana is currently the third-largest blockchain ecosystem globally, trailing only behind Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

“We’re really excited to be able to provide native support for Solana on Coins starting in February,” he added.

When asked why Coins is only launching support for Solana now, Zhou humorously remarked that “it’s a really hard blockchain.”

“It’s about resources right here for us. It’s sort of like we’ve always wanted to support it, but we just didn’t have the resources to do it until now.”

Apart from Solana, in December 2023, Coins.ph expanded its services by integrating BRC-20 inscription— a standard for creating and handling interchangeable tokens with equal value on the Bitcoin blockchain.

What is Solana Blockchain?

Solana is a blockchain platform recognized for its high performance and scalability, addressing common challenges in the blockchain space. With a unique combination of technologies, including Proof of History (PoH) and Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms, Solana achieves high throughput, capable of processing thousands of transactions per second. 

The platform prioritizes low transaction costs, making it more accessible for users and developers. Its architecture is designed for scalability, allowing it to handle a growing number of transactions without compromising speed. 

The platform supports various tokens, including Solana Program Library (SPL) tokens, fostering a diverse ecosystem of decentralized applications (DApps) for gaming, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and DeFi.
