Solana indeed looks interesting.

It's sad that there are so many blockchains and whatever out there, because that makes us lose track of the handful of ideas that may be worth looking to.

I'll read the whitepaper and give feedback later, if I have anything important to comment.


Is this somehow comparable with https://chronologic.network/? (I don't understand how either works, nor its practical use cases.)

Nope, not related at all

Not what I asked.

From what I can tell they are just using ethereum blocks as a way to keep track of time.

I designed Solana! I would love some feedback, especially from anyone working on VDFs.
