A co-founder of Solana believes their blockchain may be the ‘Apple of crypto’

According to Solana co-founder Raj Gokal, the Solana (SOL) blockchain might become the crypto world’s equivalent of IT giant Apple because of its strong focus on user experience. Gokal compared Solana to Apple in a recent interview with TechCrunch, saying the Mac and iPhone maker’s “relentless focus on simple interaction” is something Solana has learned from.

“Solana has the potential to be the Apple of crypto,” Gokal said in the interview, citing how Apple “worked for close to a decade on latency for touchscreens to allow the iPhone to come out and it just felt like magic.” “A lot of things had to be built on top of that platform to get the iPhone, App Store, and app ecosystem to where they are today.” But it all started with a single, unwavering emphasis on a small interaction that had to execute flawlessly,” the Solana co-founder explained.

He went on to say that Solana’s goal is to build a blockchain-based network “that feels like the regular internet when it’s actually an entirely new financial internet.” As part of its attempts to create a user-centric and seamless experience for web3, Solana unveiled the Saga Android smartphone in April, which is specifically intended for blockchain applications.

The phone, among other things, includes the Solana decentralized app (dApp) Store and a self-custody solution called Seed Vault, which secures keys through biometric identification and encryption. Notably, the phone’s release drew increased attention to the Solana network’s native SOL token, which has been in positive territory since April 1st. Other prominent coins, like Bitcoin (BTC), have fallen by roughly 2% over the same time span. Not unexpectedly, the renewed interest in the Solana project could be beneficial to the token, which some estimate will reach highs of $39 to $48 in the medium term.
