HONG KONG, Sept 7, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Blockpass has announced that it will be integrating its identity verification solution with Solana Wallets and supporting Solana projects with its revolutionary On-Chain KYC(R) solution. Additionally, Blockpass will provide a unique special offer available to all Solana projects in the form of a 50% discount.
Solana is a blockchain network with the fundamental ideals of an open-source community, decentralization, staking and censorship resistance at its heart. The Solana network is validated by thousands of independently-operating nodes that ensures data remains secure and censorship resistant. With a block time of 400 milliseconds, which improves as the hardware does, Solana is made to handle thousands of transactions per second, and fees for both developers and users remain less than $0.01, with the average cost being a fraction of a cent. Using a proof of stake model and other innovations, Solana minimizes its impact on the environment, with each transaction using about the same energy as a few Google searches.
