Solana (SOL) co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko revealed in recent posts his big goal for the smart contracts platform.
In an interview with Scott Melker, Anatoly Yakovenko noted that he hopes Solana’s speed will help it become the reference system for all global financial data, eliminating the inefficiencies of the existing market:
“THIS LOOKS LIKE THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF MY SCIENCE FICTION FOR SOLANA. WHEN A TRADER LOOKS AT A MARKET ON NYSE (NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE) OR SOLANA, IT SHOULD HAVE THE SAME PRICE. THIS WOULD MEAN THAT NO REAL ARBITRAGE WOULD BE ALLOWED. THIS WILL REQUIRE A LOT OF WORK TO IMPLEMENT.”– Anatoly Yakovenko
A big adoption boom
Solana’s blockchain leader also noted that for Solana to become dominant, it will take a big adoption boom for the next big application to be launched on the platform. This he believes would be key to realizing mass adoption:
“I think the key piece that would be awesome and would be like a win, is to see an app with 100 million users happening on Solana. And I don’t know what that might be, but, to me, if something like Facebook or similar level NFT is built on Solana, I think it would be a win.I have this belief and hope that self-reliance is so important that if we have 100 million people with self-reliance, it becomes a transformative force, almost like a global voting bloc around the world, like, what happens if 10 million people decide to buy every coal plant and shut it down? Like the DAO [decentralized autonomous organization]. The possibilities there are endless and pretty wild,” said meaningfully.– Anatoly Yakovenko
