When choosing a blockchain, we put forward the following criteria, which we considered the most significant for our game project:
Decentralization of blockchain
According to the Ultimate publication, the number of nodes in the Solana blockchain is significantly higher than in most others, except Ethereum, and is on the order of 1,875 validators!

Involvement of institutional investors
Solana was able to attract the attention and investments of major crypto funds such as OKEx, MXC, and dozens of others. Our Golden Clone online strategy is more than 15 years old. Accordingly, the crypto-platform, on which we will base the further development of the game in the world of cryptocurrencies, must also be reliable, popular and have a clear future.
Solana developers said their blockchain is capable of supporting about 50,000 transactions per second. In other words, that it is almost 1000 times faster than the Bitcoin blockchain and 3000 times faster than Ethereum! Read more (opens in a new tab)

The cost of transactions should not be an overhead for the average user. The average commission per transaction in the Solana blockchain is 0.000005 SOL, t.е. a tiny fraction of a cent!
The reliability and modernity of the language used to create smart contracts in this blockchain, as well as the convenience and speed of development in this language.
Behind the project are very well-known developers who have already gained experience working for Apple, Intel, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, and others. Thanks to this, the startup Solana was able to attract investors.
The cryptocurrency SOL has been in the top 10 in terms of both capitalization and popularity for more than a year. It is traded on almost all cryptocurrency exchanges, paired with other popular coins or fiat money.
