Solana Expands Network’ Resilience and Decentralization, Reveals Node Count Increase
The Solana Foundation’s latest Validator Health Report highlights the network’s growing decentralization and resilience.
Solana aims to become a leading proof-of-stake blockchain, with increased node counts and diverse node distribution as key indicators of its progress.
The Solana Foundation has released its latest Validator Health Report, illuminating the network’s journey towards further decentralization and resilience. The report reveals that Solana aims to become a leading decentralized proof-of-stake blockchain, with metrics such as total global node count, node distribution, and geographic diversity showcasing its impressive growth.
In addition, the network’s resilience is augmented through its evolution into a multi-client system.
“Solana has become one of the most, if not the most, decentralized proof-of-stake blockchains in existence, and this recent report reinforces this,”said Dan Albert, Executive Director of the Solana Foundation.
He attributed this achievement to the increasing number of validators operating across diverse global jurisdictions and the development of multiple light clients and second validator clients, including Firedancer.
The Solana Foundation has been actively working to enhance network health at the software level, supporting the development of new software clients and collaborating with core-contributing developers. Currently, four independent validator clients are in active development, highlighting Solana’s commitment to performance and reliability.
Albert emphasized, “Solana is the only blockchain, apart from Ethereum, to feature more than one validator client, and this is a testament to the vision and drive of the many developers working tirelessly to make this network as performant and reliable as possible.”
The network further demonstrates strength by metrics such as the 1,961 block-producing nodes globally and a Nakamoto Coefficient of 31 as of September 6, 2023. The company asserts that these improvements make it increasingly challenging for any single entity, whether government, corporation or individual, to influence the network.
The Solana Foundation actively supports the network’s validator community to promote growth. Emphasizing transparency, the Foundation welcomes contributions from the Solana community to ensure ongoing success and decentralization.
