710,000 tx/s with off-the-shelf hardware and no sharding. Scales with Moore's Law.
Blockchain Solana is built on the Proof of History consensus. It is a consensus in which a time variable is created on the network which helps the network nodes to determine which event happened before the others, that allows reducing network congestion significantly and thereby optimizing it.
