Visa recently highlighted Solana (SOL) as a smart contract platform with unparalleled technological advantages for payment transactions in a blog post. Check out the latest reports about this below.

ETH rival to shine in the crypto space

Among its benefits, Solana boasts of low and predictable transfer fees, high throughput rates, and substantial node support.

Notably, Visa even acknowledged that Solana surpasses well-known cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) in certain aspects.

Solana has transaction fees that are both affordable and predictable, typically costing less than $0.001. This predictability makes it an attractive network to explore for cost savings and efficiency improvements for current payment operations.

In the accompanying graphic, Solana stands out from Bitcoin and Ethereum in terms of cost, as their fees can fluctuate unpredictably based on transaction demand.

Payment companies may encounter greater difficulty managing networks with these unpredictable transaction costs, resulting in confusing experiences for consumers.

Visa has announced that they will be incorporating Solana into their stablecoin settlement program, citing the blockchain’s efficiency.

They are interested in testing the blockchain’s ability to handle the financial demands of modern corporations.

Solana boasts high throughput with parallel processing, localized fee markets with low costs, and a resilient network with numerous nodes and multiple node clients, making it a scalable blockchain platform with a compelling value proposition for payments.

As a result, Visa has decided to expand their stablecoin settlement pilot to include transactions on the Solana network.

They plan to use this opportunity to assess whether Solana can meet the demands of contemporary corporate treasury operations.

In other recent news, recently, Visa extended its stablecoin settlement abilities to the Solana (SOL) blockchain and introduced a new cross-border money system that utilizes Circle’s USDC.

The head of crypto, Cuy Sheffield, likened the current state of crypto to the early days of the internet, describing it as going through a “broadband moment” where it is evolving and progressing as a technology.
