An eco-friendly and scalable approach with Solana

Artrade header

Artrade prides itself on being an eco-conscious platform, harnessing the power of the Solana blockchain, renowned for its remarkable speed and minimal energy consumption. The selection of this blockchain stands as a strategic choice due to its rich Web3 ecosystem. Moreover, Solana hosts some of the largest transaction volumes of NFTs following Ethereum, making it a prime hub for the Artrade project.

This choice aligns seamlessly with Artrade's commitment to sustainability within the realm of digital art. Its impressive efficiency and speed not only contribute to the platform's operational excellence but also significantly reduce the carbon footprint typically associated with blockchain transactions.

Solana stands out for its remarkable speed, boasting block times of just 400 milliseconds (as hardware gets faster, so will the network) and a capacity of 2,403 transactions per second. With a decentralized network upheld by 1,964 validator nodes, it ensures robust security and resistance to censorship. Scalability is at its core, handling an impressive total of 254,089,049,374 transactions, all while maintaining low fees, less than $0.0025 for both developers and users. Notably, Solana achieves this with unparalleled energy efficiency, utilizing a proof-of-stake system that minimizes environmental impact, consuming energy equivalent to just a few Google searches per transaction, standing at 0% emissions.

That's why Solana's Web3 ecosystem acts as a catalyst, offering Artrade a solid base to propel innovation and nurture expansion within the NFT arena. The integration with Solana not only guarantees a smooth user experience but also magnifies Artrade's potential to lead the charge in revolutionizing the art market through its digital transformation.
