SOL: The coin of the open-source project centered on Decentralized Finance or DeFi is often touted as an Ethereum (ETH) killer. 

SOL has skyrocketed 2,326.5% since 2021 began. The cryptocurrency traded 6.93% higher at $36.64 at press time and has risen 32.44% on a seven-day trailing basis. 

Comparatively, ETH has returned 203.02% on a year-to-date basis. ETH traded 7.11% lower at $2,242.10 at press time. 

Solana claims it can process 65,500 transactions per second, which is faster than Ethereum’s current average of 18.3, Cointelegraph reported

This speed advantage has attracted DeFi projects to its network. Multiple projects have made it to the blockchain in the past month.
