How does Solana work?

The key to Solana’s speed and scalability is its use of a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm. In a PoS system, users stake their tokens in order to validate transactions on the network. The more tokens a user stakes, the more “weight” their vote has. This system is different from Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithms like the one used by Bitcoin, which require users to solve complex mathematical problems in order to validate transactions.
