Solana's annual inflation rate is currently 5.604% and will decrease by 15% every year. Note that this is an 'epoch-year', or ~180 epochs. As the length of an epoch varies from ~2.5 - 3.5 calendar days dependent on network performance, actual inflation rate will vary.
How long is a Solana slot?
400 milliseconds A slot in Solana is a fixed duration of time, currently set at 400 milliseconds, during which a validator has the opportunity to produce a block.
How long is 2 epochs?
An epoch is 432,000 slots, each of which should at a minimum take 400ms. Since block times are variable this means epochs effectively last somewhere between 2–3 days.
How long is Solana unstaking?
Three days It normally takes up to three days to unstake your Solana. This is because Solana uses a system of epochs, each of which lasts around 2.5 days. In order to ensure fairness and network security, when you deactivate your stake, it will remain active for the remainder of the current epoch.
How long is an epoch?
An epoch in Geochronology is a period of time, typically in the order of tens of millions of years. The current epoch is the Holocene.
How many slots does Solana have in one epoch?
432,000 slots Solana has 432,000 slots per epoch which amounts to ~2 days. Each epoch has a randomly generated predefined leader schedule that defines which validator is expected to produce a block per slot. A slot can then either contain a block or not (skipped slot).
